The polka dot. It’s been around for years and apparently it’s one of this season’s biggest trends. Has it ever gone out of trend? I remember wearing polka dots as a kid and for the longest time I thought of them as playful and juvenile. As an adult I went through my phases, a polka dot skirt here and a polka dot scarf there, but it never quite phased me why I was choosing to wear these things or if they were trendy. The polka dot was just there and available. It’s a simple statement yet these days seems so sophisticated and fresh and apparently has lasting power. Therefore, I have a new obsession with the polka dot. Whether it’s in my wardrobe, a fabric or a fun piece of art I find myself drawn in and wanting more. Am I a victim of this trend or have I always loved the polka dot?
Marilyn Monroe. Polka dot style at its best
Colorful, fun photography
Have fun with the scale when using it on furniture
mixing the stripe with the polka dot
The polka dot is perfect with a pair of jeans but you can mix it with just about anything – especially a coordinating stripe or solid
This fabric would coordinate nicely with a larger floral or ethnic print
Celebrities. They’re just like us. They wear polka dots!
Different styles on different faces
