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 THE WHOLE POLKA DOT THING, BUT THAT DRESS IS NOT HELPING HER OUT IN ANY WAY, IT DOESEN’T GIVE HER ANY SHAPE!
AND I AGREE THE TOP HALF OF HER DRESS DOES LOOK BAGGY.

Eva Longoria looks absolutely ridiculous with blonde hair. I’ve never seen her looking more unattractive.

Leann….I agree she looks so much better with her natural dark hair. Some woman can pull off the lighter shades when not natural but she CANT…she is very beautiful and wish she would look the way she is supposed to….i dont like dots
