Get the look: Polka dot pencil dresses

Molina Spot Dress, £145 from Coast; Viyella Petite Spot Print Crepe Dress, £130 from John Lewis; Oscar De La Renta Embellished cotton-blend and satin-jacquard dress, £2,750, from Net-a-Porter; Polka Dot dress from TK Maxx; Alexon cream spot linen dress, £99 from Debenhams.

Polka dots somehow straddle the usually gaping chasm between fun and sophistication, adding interest to a simple shift and making the plainest of jersey dresses far more occasion-appropriate. The beauty of the polka dot is in its versatility – the high street has dresses of every shape and style, suitable for the office, for a dinner date or even for a wedding reception.

Go for full dotty overland like Oscar De La Renta by pairing a spotty dress with a reverse-spot cardigan for the catwalk take on this look.
