Remember the famous scene in Pretty Women, where Julia Roberts’ character Vivian, wears that beautiful dark caramel and white belted polka dot dress to the Polo?
That outfit—right down to the crisp white gloves and matching white hat—won me over the first time I saw it, and I was probably only about 12. At the time I wasn’t overly keen on dresses, but Julia Roberts looked so elegant, that every time I’m on the hunt for an outfit for the races or the polo, it’s the outfit that I picture.
You can now pull together your own take on this look (without going through the awkward thigh high plastic boots and skirt stage first) and while I can’t guarantee that you’ll find yourself an Edward, you’ll definitely be a winner in the style stakes!
And, to make it super easy for you, I put my recent bout of insomnia to good use and I’ve found 22 perfect polka dot pieces sure to make you feel like a Pretty Woman (including the Shabby Sisters Julia Wrap Dress that I’m wearing, which was kindly gifted to me).
