FEEL­ING BLUE

If you’re not 100 per cent sure about polka-dot prints, try a dotty mo­tif, such as Swiss dot, in­stead. This blue dress (which also comes in beige and black) is the ul­ti­mate wear-ev­ery­where, ev­ery­day style for work, week­end and beyond.

BOLD & BRIGHT

There’s noth­ing like a sunshine-hued top to stand out from the crowd and bring some hap­pi­ness to your day (and ev­ery­one else’s, too). Team this one with cig­a­rette pants or a pleated skirt — ba­si­cally any sim­ple, stream­lined sil­hou­ette that lets your top do the talk­ing.

HIGH SHINE

Find­ing a new wal­let can be a tricky task: there’s prac­ti­cal­ity to con­sider (how many com­part­ments? Do you need a coin pocket?), and then there’s fash­ion to think about. En­ter Comme des Garçons — its wal­lets ful­fil all of the above and then some. Go for this con­ti­nen­tal style if you need lots of card slots, or opt for the smaller ver­sion if hand­bag space is a peren­nial is­sue.

GO­ING DOTTY

What’s clas­sic and cov­etable — and cov­ered in dots? This pair of Valentino Rock­stud pumps, up­dated in black and white polka dot-printed leather. De­signed for true high fash­ion afi­ciona­dos, these are shoes that will turn heads ev­ery­where you go.

CA­SUAL COR­NER

Every off-duty wardrobe needs a pair of chi­nos: a pair to throw on and go, yet isn’t so sloppy you’re afraid to run into some­one you know at the gro­cery store. En­ter this boyfriend style, which looks great with loafers, sneak­ers and an­kle boots alike. J.Crew, jcrew.com | $104.50
