This Is How The Polka Dot Was Reversed And Given A Fresh Feel For The Summer!

The love for polka dots amongst fashion girls can be traced back to the famous Disney cartoon character Minnie Mouse. Since then the print has lived on through appearances in high fashion (Marc Jacobs is a fan) and top celebrities (think: Marilyn Monroe in her polka dotted bikini!) no matter the decade, year or season, this trend has never left us. The romantic ladylike prints always find a home with the girly girls of fashion.

While most women might not have noticed this, traditionally, ‘white on dark’ is how polka dot began its journey. Taylor Swift, the epitome of feminine fashion, is wearing a classic summer favourite polka-dotted shift dress...

...And this is the polka dot reversed trend that took over from florals as the go-to spring print at fashion shows:

Black on white polka dots provided a twist on this classic look for the summer. The shift was a radical one because this is how some of our favourite fashion girls adopted the trend in their style:

1. Dainty Prints Mixed With Other Shades

Alia’s black and blush polka dot detail on a white Giambattista Valli dress was the go-to style she chose for a recent appearance promoting her upcoming film Raazi. The youthful vibes of this dress is almost infectious, where you just wanna smile while wearing a pretty little dress on a Sunday!

2. Go Big Or Go Home

Sonam Kapoor always knows how to tug at the heartstrings of women with her graceful yet trendy fashion choices. One of her summer favourites seems to be about going big with the polka dots, steering clear from small prints to come up with a statement blouse you can wear with solid jeans for a chic look.

3. Priyanka’s Epitome Of Sophistication

Polka dots are very popular with formal wear and Pee Cee proved that point flawlessly in this sundress dress she wore at a formal polo event. Did we just strike a chord with women looking to switch up their work wardrobes?

4. Polka Polka Set
