Lady Bugs. Leopards. Dalmatians. It seems like fashion distributors are taking a cue from Mother Nature and seeing spots again this fall. After having been quite the star this spring, polka dots are making their autumnal debut in everything from iPhone cases and handbags to cashmere sweaters and nail art. So if you’re looking to get a little dotty, there are plenty of ways to make the trend your own this fall season.
