Stella McCartney, noted purveyor of sophisticated chic, went a bit dotty in her fall/winter 2011 collection, with polka dots popping up on various garments, including the humble T-shirt. Their most seductive appearance, however, was on knockout sheer-panelled dotted dresses, proving that the traditionally prim pattern definitely has a sexy side. Try it out on a pair of sheer hose – fun and flirty, but still appropriate for daytime business.
