Bella Hadid has a reputation for blazing her own trail off the runway. Her outfit choices are always noteworthy, whether she’s running errands or attending a fashion week shindig. So when the model went to a Balenciaga dinner during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Fall 2022, we took notice. Naturally she was decked out in the famous fashion house favoring statement-making polka dot pieces, including a jacquard shirt worn off the shoulder and matching flowing pants.

Now all we can think about is replicating the look. Although we’re swapping the pants for shorts because heat wave. We’re also setting our sights on all variations of the classic pattern. Good thing there are lots of options. From a fancy take on a slip dress to a flossed midi skirt and even matching sets, there’s something for every day of the week.

Traditionally, the darling dots come in black and white. But we’re not limiting ourselves to two colors. Red, blue, beige and an orangish brown are great alternatives. The size of the dots also varies. Embrace larger circumferences to make a big impression. Or go smaller for a subtler approach. Feel free to mix and match from top to bottom.
