Polka dots are having a major moment this summer. From the runways to our favorite street style putting their own sartorial spin on the classic print, it’s safe to say the ubiquitous dot is making a thoroughly modern mark.
Brief history lesson: the ‘polka’, a Czech form of dance, derives from the Polish for “woman”; in Czech it translates to “little girl”.
As such, polka-dots promise to add a playful element to your real-life wardrobe with a grown-up guise. Wear yours small and on a clean silhouette or go big or go home to really make an unapologetically bold statement.
