Best vintage-style dress: classic polka dot for all sizes

This classic vintage-style blue polka dot dress is great for all shapes and comes in a superb range of sizes.

I have to admit it, I’m a sucker for polka dots. I can’t wait to launch myself into writing about the history of this wonderful fabric pattern. But for now I’ll just collect the dresses, scarves, socks, bags…..yes those wee dots can be found on many things.

This dress is, I believe, a nod to the 1930s with the shaping and style and I just love the classic blue colour which can be worn with so many other colours. It comes from IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel

You could easily pull something on over this dress when it’s chilly  – classy jumper or cardi. Also it can be dressed up or down. The jersey material looks extra comfy and  forgiving yet has that flattering princess knot detail suitable for all sizes of bust. What I love about this dress is that it would definitely hide all my worst bits and show off all the best bits.

This polka dot dress is the kind of staple that we need in our wardrobes as it could be worn with flats or heels in almost any colour and can be worn to work and also to a party or wedding. Classic, elegant, comfy. It could be the perfect dress!

You can get this blue polka dot dress online if you live in the US by clicking on the dress below. You’ll wear it for years to come and it doesn’t break the bank at $128.


A series of regular posts in which I find the vintage dress of my day-dreams whilst researching my favourite vintage and fashion history topics. Being a fortysomething myself, these dresses are often suitable for those of us on the fun side of forty.
