Stripes or Polka dots?…with a touch of stars

April 30, 2012

Talking about style I’m usually quite well oriented and sure … but when the matter is  prints and patterns… well, I have not clear in my mind the solution. Polka dots or stripes, what do I prefer?!?!  If it were true that the polka dots reminiscent of a ’50s atmosphere, while the strips a sort of ‘sailor style’ it would be pretty easy to choose. In fact nowadays both textures have become so graphic that the choice is just a matter of taste. What do you think? Do you see yourself dressed with polka dots or stripes? Nevertheless to confuse the ideas  even more I have added some examples of printings with stars – a very contemporary version of the vintage polka dots. xxx

Strisce o pois?…con un tocco di stelle. Per quanto riguarda lo stile solitamente sono abbastanza decisa…ma quando parliamo di stampe e pattern…mmm allora non ho proprio le idee chiare. Tra pois e strisce chi preferire? Se fosse vero che i polka dots rimandano a una atmosfera anni ’50 mentre le strisce a uno stile più marinaio sarebbe abbastanza facile scegliere. In realtà ormai entrambe le texture sono diventate talmente grafiche che la scelta risulta solo una questione di gusto. Voi cosa ne pensate? Come vi vedete a pois o a strisce? Ah per confondere ancora di più le idee ho aggiunto qualche esempio di pattern con stelle – una variante molto contemporanea del vintage pois. xxx

    I got a cute navy/white polka dot dress from ASOS. Waiting for the weather to warm up so I can wear it. 🙂

  11. I love both, but I think stripes will always be at the very top of my list! Thanks for checking out my blog!

  12. I love both!! Even though I own more dots skirts than striped clothes!! Buuut both look so good that there is no reason to prefer one to the other!!

    I love this post! It’s a feast for the eyes. I have more stripes than dots (since I have zero dots!) but I’m thinking of adding some polka dots to my wardrobe via a cute shirt from Talbots.
