Trend Worth Trying: Polka Dot Dresses

10/10/2006 at 04:31 PM ET

As seen in our Would You Wear It gallery, polka dots always have a sweet, retro feel — and combined with swingy skirts and bare necklines, they are the perfect way to keep wearing dresses into fall. We love Eva Longoria’s one-of-a-kind Nanette Lepore dress (left), but since we can’t buy that one, here are some other versions of the trend to try:

For a more work-appropriate version of Eva’s dress, check out these shirtdresses from Nanette Lepore, $320, and Arden B, $128.

If you like a little more support, try a halter version from J. Crew, $250, or XOXO, $94.

To get the look for a steal, try Forever 21, $28.

And the look works on all body types. For plus sizes, try this Donna Ricco halter dress, $148.

I like this polka dot dress Eva is wearing. It looks very cute.

I like the very suttle polka dot dresses, nothing to outlandish or loud. I think polka dot dresses really take you back into time, from the 50’s and so forth. It’s nice for a change.

Love that dress on her (can’t say I’ve seen many dresses on Eva that I don’t love).

love polka dots, they are hot!!!

Lolo on

It looks okay but the top of it looks too baggy! She might need some straps with that. It looks okay but you could do better!

Amber on

I love polka dot dresses, but the ones that were in your “Would You Wear It gallery” are just aweful, I did not like the colors(if you can call black & white a color, since they’re really not even colors in the first place).
