On The Dot: The Polka Trend Is Making A Comeback!

On The Dot: The Polka Trend Is Making A Comeback!

We can trace back the first memory of polka dots back to our childhood, watching Minnie Mouse on TV in her little spotted red dress and matching bow! Since then, the trend has made sporadic appearances in fashion, never truly taking the spotlight but as a constant pillion to other more elaborate trends, but ALWAYS staying in vogue! With its latest outing in 2017 resort collections, the style has once again stood the test of time. Design houses of Carolina Herrera and Monse have released their own unique renditions of the same!

So why do they keep making a comeback after all? Nostalgia? Maybe. The style has an old-school charm with endearing undertones from the swinging 60s. One of the reasons is definitely versatility. The dots can sit well with anything, shorts, skirts, dresses and accessories! No wonder it is around in view at one point or another! “I don’t think there is ever a wrong time for a polka dot.”, Marc Jacobs said, commenting on the trend not being a slave to seasonality. So rejoice ladies, you can wear the dot any time of the year!

Another aspect of the polka dot is the fact that designers can play with it to no end! Big, small, shimmery, contrast and much more, this details can be twisted and turned to create many statement looks. The dots originated as big bright details on shift dresses, a route Calvin Klein has chosen to take. In contemporary fashion though, the size of the dots has reduced, with people going for subtle detailing on their clothes for everyday wear. Tiny polka dots on a regular button down can instantly up the chic factor!
