Autumn/Winter is arguably the better half of the year sartorially. Warm scarves, long coats, boots that are made for walking…you name it, and we’re itching to add it to our closet! But I often find that this season becomes a lot more about muted tones, monochromes and plain outfits – which can be great as I do love simplicity. But adding a pattern or print can really make an outfit stand out, and this season we’re loving the polka dot!
The polka dot is fun and can add a youthful charm to an outfit, yet on the right piece, depending on colour and the size of the dots, can be extremely elegant and chic. We love it for Autumn/Winter because you can pair a polka dot item with an otherwise monochrome outfit just for a pop of colour and flair in the colder, greyer months. One brand that does the polka dot perfectly is London-based KITRI.
Designed by creatives in London, womenswear brand KITRI strives to create pieces that help us enjoy “distinctive designs without breaking the bank.”
Their new winter collection features gorgeous dresses, tops, jumpsuits and more, all created with unique prints and patterns. The stand-out pieces amongst the bunch however, are their beautiful polka dot items: the Heidi Smocked Top, Alison Midi Dress, and Aurora Maxi Dress. Each created with red polka dots on a black fabric or vice-versa, the pieces manage to be fun yet classic wardrobe staples. Both the Heidi and Alison are made from 100% viscose crepe, making them super-soft to touch and ultra-luxurious to wear. The Aurora dress is made from 100% polyester and falls in a beautifully chic way to move and sway with the body.
All three pieces are beautifully designed and crafted and are the perfect additions to your closet this season. Pair each with gold jewellery and black accessories for a chic look, and make sure to take a look at the rest of KITRI’s winter collection for more amazing fashion inspiration.
