Polka Dots - A Trend That is Timeless and Never-Ending

Polka Dots - A Trend That is Timeless and Never-Ending

When we are looking through old summer pictures of our parents, we are always able to spot that dress with white dots – polka dots. A trend that is timeless and never-ending. Yet this season the polka dots get a modern update.
Nostalgic Minnie Mouse is done – we are saying hello to a sophisticated style with light-hearted edges. Vogue reported them as “direct, unblushing plan to make women extravagantly, romantically, eyelash-battingly female”. So it must be true – this season they are more redolent than ever.

So how to wear polka dots? Well, look at our pictures, they give you an idea of how bloggers tend to wear them. You may match the classic print with monochromatic garb. You can take advantage of the refined fabrics and fluid silhouettes. Polka dots are a playful element of your everyday wardrobe. Small ones on a clean silhouette or bigger ones for a bold statement.

On the dots – that’s how designers interpreted the never-ending polka dots this summer/fall. Calvin Klein with big dots on a shirtdress, Emporio Armani with balloon trousers in white and black dots, Gucci in a black ruffle dress with white dots, Michael Kors with small dots on a dress, Oscar de la Renta with black dots on a white ruffle dress, or Zac Posen with polka dots in haute couture.

Balenciaga showed coin-sized dots adorned with couture. Loewe employed them to an uncharacteristically naïve effect and printed the dots on tightly-pleated ruffled silk fabrics. Christian Lacroix was once the king of polka dots. Jacquemus interpreted polka dots as fat and globular. A Parisian girl who fell in love with a gypsy in the south of France. Caroline Herrera used them in a nylon and silk dress. Edie Parker as a bag. Michael Kors even takes it to another level in using polka dots on a green shirtdress. There is no restriction to just black and white. We have seen red dresses with polka dots as well. Dolce & Gabbana used the dots for a ruffle midi skirt. Anna October on an off-shoulder blouse. Givenchy also took the dots to a colourful level on their black purse with dots in blue, red, green, pink, brown and so on. Isabel Marant showed us a polka dot top with red dots on black. 
So who is still speaking of Minnie Mouse fashion?! Definitely not us.
