After perusing my favorite stores’ fall collections, I’ve spotted a trend: spots. Whether it’s polka dots, Swiss dots, Dalmatian spots, or cheetah spots this fall, fashionistas who follow this trend are sure to be spot on. Got a limited clothing budget? No worries! I’ve found some great look-alike options at prices much cheaper than their designer counterparts.

How adorable is this navy and white polka dot blouse with a Peter Pan collar? Best of all, this versatile piece works well for both work and play.
