Although everyone loves sweet polka dots, some may be wary of doubling up on the playful print, but not Michelle Monaghan. The actress showed us how to rock the print-on-print style at a Children's Defense Fund event in Beverly Hills. She worked a pair of satin polka-dot trousers, a mini-dot top, and a black leather jacket. She completed her effortless red-carpet style with a statement necklace, black leather pumps, and tousled locks. The key to nailing Michelle's fabulous duo is to vary the size of the polka dots in each piece, so pair a smaller-dot-print top with larger-spotted trousers to re-create this look with ease.
Rebecca Gayheart spent time with daughter Billie in LA looking casual and cute in a navy and white polka-dot blouse and maroon skinny jeans. We love the color combination, as well as the mix of prints and solid. For accessories, the actress sported these navy suede Jenni Kayne flats ($415), aviator sunglasses, and a gray fringe scarf. Re-create Rebecca's look by scoring her exact flats and pairing them with this similar Tylho polka-dot blouse ($129) and these Hudson bordeaux skinny jeans ($183).
It's no secret that we have a major style crush on Solange Knowles, but the trendsetter's latest NYC look has taken our feelings from crush to a full-on love affair. On her way into New York Fashion Week, Solange worked a brown polka-dot tee and blue sequin J.Crew houndstooth pencil skirt with pointed leopard pumps, then upped the wow factor via a bright yellow Dolce & Gabbana tote. From her bold blazers to her eye-catching accessories, Solange is a fashion force to be reckoned with. Take a cue from this style maven by pairing a polka-dot blouse, blue houndstooth skirt, and leopard pumps for your next fashionable lunch date.
Michelle Williams spent time with daughter Matilda in LA wearing a quirky cute ensemble that would be perfect for work. She paired a collared, sleeveless polka-dot blouse with black ankle-crop trousers, then finished off with flat ankle-strap sandals, black round sunglasses, and this Comme des Garçons blue wallet ($205). While her exact top is not available online, this Forever 21 sheer polka-dot blouse ($14) has the same effect. Match it with black pants for the office, then wear it with leather shorts for an evening out.
Zoe Saldana was spotted, literally, wearing this superfun Splendid colorful dotted top ($85) with these Citizens of Humanity high-waisted skinny jeans ($218) in LA over the weekend. The actress also sported nude patent flats, a pair of Loewe sunglasses, and a dark-red suede tote bag. What we love so much about Zoe's top is its versatility — it looked fabulous with casual jeans, but would also look great tucked into a sleek black pencil skirt for work. Then matched up with leather bottoms, the polka dots would gain major edge. Shop Zoe's exact top and jeans now to get her look now!
