Eva Longoria's Polka Dot Trousers - Somehow They Just Work

If truth be told, we've never been huge fans of the polka dot. They're just a little too prissy for our liking - think kids at school parties or yummy mummies with a set of pearls thrown in for good measure.

However, like many things in fashion, we're willing to stand corrected if someone manages to turn our heads with an outfit or trend that we ourselves hadn't even contemplated trying.

Take the gorgeous Eva Longoria for example. The 38-year-old actress tends to stick to type when it comes to her fashion choices (think body-con or full-on fabulous gowns), but her latest look took us by surprise, in more ways than one.

First up, Eva has chosen silk wide-legged trousers rather than her go-to jeans for a coffee run in LA - a nice switch-up, if you ask us. Secondly, the pattern. We're suddenly seeing the polka dot in a whole new light. Chic, cool and classic. Add high strappies and a crisp white tee and you've got the perfect smart-casual combo on your hands.

Where can we get a pair?
