Fashion is a grand spectacle indeed! With fashion, moving forward and evolving constantly, we have a variety of styles and trends to choose from. However, there are a few classic trends that have made a dramatic comeback and we are talking about the grand POLKA DOTS! This retro style has been everywhere for quite some time and NO, we can never tire of it! (We are thinking of Blair Waldorf’s cute black and white Polka Dress in Gossip Girl)
Polka dots are no longer restricted to day dressing only. Our favourite designers, celebrities and stylists all over the world have embraced this classic print warmly. It is playful, quirky and fun. It has been incorporated from the Breakfast Club to the runways and even to eveningwear and red carpet events.
This trend might be inordinately retro, but there are ways to style it without channeling your inner Minnie Mouse impressionist! (She is adorable though!) You could wear a polka dotted outfit to work, a fancy brunch, and probably even to a romantic dinner date. Just remember not to overstep the border and dress smartly. It is wise to opt for smaller polka dot prints instead of the bigger or large ones. Trust us, it works better that way! However, if you do want to make a statement with big polka dots, accessorize it carefully with zero to minimal jewelry. Also, textured polka dotted ensembles in soft and loud pastels look incredibly chic and stylish. From Twinkle Khanna, Priyanka Chopra to Alia Bhatt, our lovely Bollywood ladies have been ardent admirers of this vintage trend. Here’s our celebrity edit for some inspiration.
