Step into spring wearing the most sought-after dress of the season.
As we teeter towards yet another bank holiday, it finally feels like spring has sprung and with it comes the trials and tribulations of dressing for the season. We have become so accustomed to our neutral colours cashmere roll necks and normcore chunky knits, it feels like a bit of a jump to bound straight into ditsy floral prints and sandals.
If you (like the rest of us) are on the search for the easy stepping stone to transition your wardrobe, we have just found the solution: a polka dot dress.
The humble polka dot dress ticks the ‘goodbye-winter-hello-spring’ print box that is necessary to really commit to a new season of clothes without being overly fussy and in your face. It’s a classic print without being boring and when it comes to cost per wear the polka is totally transferable from work to wedding, making sure you get all the bang for one’s buck.
We have seen a few doing the rounds but none so great as industry insider favourite, Kitri - who have found a sweet spot in the market by creating limited runs of dresses in fortnightly drops. In true Kitri form the team have designed the polka dot dress to end all polka dot dresses.
The magical ingredients are as follows: perennially chic midi length, universally flattering asymmetric wrap shape, short frill sleeves and a waist belt to tie it all together. The colourway of navy blue with white spots is perfect for now (we are warming up to the elusive Julia Roberts Pretty Woman brown polka dot dress moment that’s yet to come).
Taking the spot of most desirable this season is the Kitri ‘Eliana’ dress. Grab yours now.
