Looking for more affordable versions of designer polka dot offerings? Catwalk Queen to the rescue!

Marc Jacobs’ polka dot version of the coveted  mouse shoes (top left) may be out of your budget even at the reduced price of £146.25, but Topshop’s slingback flats have the same whimsy polka dot theme but at the  much smaller price tag  of £35.

Diane Von Furstenburg is another designer to patronise spots this season, and she supersized hers on her trademark wrap dress. Unsurprisingly, it’s now sold out. But I’ve spied alternative contenders on the high street.

The Diane Von Furstenburg dress on the left may be sold out, but you can still get hold of Principles gorgeous polka dot print dress for £59.

Unlike the dress, there is still stock left of Diane Von Furstenburg's chiffon spot top, which retails at £160. If that's still beyond your budget, get in on the spot trend for less at ASOS with their £28 chiffon top. [Charlotte Howells]
