Trend To Try: Here’s How You Can Bring On That Polka Dotted Drama!
You remember the good ol’ polka dots from our childhood, don’t you? Yes, the same ones Minnie Mouse so gracefully rocked!
Well, that very polka dot has moved past our childhood memories into a more fashionable realm, taking the style world by storm.
If you’ve ever rummaged through your parents’ photo albums, you have probably caught them on several occasions rocking the dot! I mean, it was practically the nautical print of the past.
Thought to originate from the polka dance, this particular design swung by and stuck around for the longest time ever! The iconic print being the white dots against a blue background, the spots then appeared in different colours, eventually evolving into various forms.
Ideally, the polka dot was seen on swing dresses and skirts that were used by dancers (hence its assumed origin), but has now been replicated on all your basic fashion necessities out there. From blouses to jumpsuits, and shorts to skirts, the dots are a trend that never really went away.
