Iconic Kate Spade – 3 Tribute looks

From polka dots to the 'it' bag, here are iconic Kate Spade looks that will suit any wardrobe.



Whimsical polka dot

Polka dots popped up on Kate Spade bags, dresses, and even manicures during her runway shows. Embrace the playful side of fashion with this shirt and pants combo. Add in this red cross-body Kate Spade bag for a daring pop of colour, then keep your other accessories simple.

We like these black Parfois earrings, which subtly echo the overall polka dot trend. For shoes, slip into these sassy sliders from local UAE boutique Sauce at Sea.

Kate’s newest project

After successfully founding Kate Spade, Kate launched Frances Valentine. This second company embraced the famous designer’s love of bright, poppy colours, playful motifs and whimsical touches.

We’re pretty much in love with these Frances Valentine Pauline Mule Slides. Keep the structured vibe alive with these Missguided black slacks. Then add in a bold yellow top to play with the cobalt blue on the shoes and finish with cat-eye shades.

The classic bag

Quirky handbags were a focus for the famous designer. From boomboxes to whicker baskets, she embraced all things fun and whimsical. Yet the Sam Tote Bag was perhaps one of Kate’s most iconic creations.

Grab this timeless primrose version, then channel Kate’s love of florals with this off-the-shoulder dress. The simple neckline and cinched waist make for an elegant, wear-anywhere look. Keep your accessories simple here. A nude heel, like this one from Missguided, works perfectly. Finish off the entire look with a simple set of Kate Spade earrings.
