The Polka Dot Trend Hits The Spot!

Polka dots have been around for decades but they are having a resurgence recently. Designers like Marimeko, Kate Spade, Jill Sander, Marc Jacobs and Nina Ricci highlighted the timeless pattern in their Spring and Resort collections. The polka dot trend looks like it's here to stay.

Recently this whimsical print has been showing up not just on ladies ready-to-wear but in menswear and accessories as well. It's a classic pattern that coordinates easily with just about anything in your wardrobe and will never go out of style. This season, designers and consumers have been getting more adventurous by mixing classic polka dot prints with other patterns and colors. I especially like the positive-negative mixing as well as pairing different size polka dots. Since the pattern is a simple one, it can easily be mixed with different prints and colors.
