Good afternoon my sweet readers! Here it is, the fourth post of Sweet’n’Raw’s polka dot series! It’s time for the dress. I could have done the whole dressy & glamour thing, but instead I wanted to show you how I do the dress as a skirt thing: one of my favorite things to pull off these days. But first, here’s a selection of spotted dresses you can find online to start dancing polka:


THE CREAMY: 1. Sonia Rykiel 2. Topshop 3. Marc by Marc Jacobs

THE BLACK: 4. Dorothy Perkins  5. Lulu & Co.  6. AX Paris

THE NAVY & THE GREEN: 7. Topshop 8. Suzannah 9. Topshop


Using dresses as skirts is definitely a way to reinvent your wardrobe and make it more resourceful. By throwing over a jumper or a shirt over a simple dress, you can transform it into totally new and fabulous ensemble. For this post, I chose this cute and flippy sundress from TOPSHOP. Mixing summery garments with winter wear is another way to have fun with your clothes. I layered a cream cable knit jumper over it with navy details (you can also find it at TOPSHOP). For this chilly days, I chose this beautiful, double lapel, burgundy coat from ASOS. Why I love it? The fitting is perfect, so perfect it allows what you are wearing underneath to be seen as well. Since we are still on bare leg quarantine, I chose this beige tights with a velvet finish, also from ASOS. Since this outfit is casual chic but more on the cute side, I believe some t-bar shoes are in order. This pair of suedee beauties can be found on ASOS.

When it comes to accessories, we need to keep it cool and laid-back. What better way to achieve that than with this gorgeous messenger bag from purse expert, Rebecca Minkoff. We already have the cable jumper, why not add a cable knit beanie? This one is from United Bamboo at La Garçone. For your hands: a vintage looking peacock watch from ASOS, a bow ring trio, also from ASOS and last but definitely not least, from the Daphne Guiness for MAC fabulous collaboration: Blueblood for you nails!

Ready to strut your stuff in a polka dress made skirt? I sure am, that is, of course, when I get back to the cold and cruel Winter in Milan. Right now I am enjoying my last days in Mexico, with my family. Sad to be leaving, but happy for all the things that are coming my way this year!
