Fall Polka Dots

Fall Polka Dots

Fun and whimsical, yet always classic, polka dots have moved from the runways of Fashion Week to airport runways in recent seasons. This fall's popular hues make polka dots especially inviting. Pack up a polka dot carry-on and you'll be ready for a crisp weekend of leaf peeping.


Hartmann Luggage has just introduced a new color in their popular Luxe collection. Sugarplum with chocolate dots is available in five styles, from a day tote perfect to carry everyday essentials to a 24" Mobile Traveler for weeklong getaways.

Sally Spicer introduced a new collection of fabrics for Fall 2007, including a rich and luscious Cocoa Dot. I love these dots on her weekender bag, an ideal bag to pack up for weekend drives or take on the plane as a carry-on.

Finally, if you prefer your polka dots bold and glossy, International Traveller's DOTS Shiny Print collection makes quite the statement. Graphic black and white or pretty pale pink and white will certainly be noticed.

Clearly, women have no excuse for carrying drab black bags this fall. Chocolates and plum, high gloss or traditional wool, polka dots are here to stay.
