We like to think our style evolves with age, but we’ve come to learn that’s not totally the case. From the resurrection of leggings to the reinvention of crop tops, the trends we wore in the ‘80s and ‘90s are suddenly just as cool in 2014. And with that, we’d like to re-introduce you to your once-favourite print: the polka dot.
Though polka dots technically never went out of style, this season seems to be all about the revival of the cheery pattern. But wait, don’t go digging out your tapered Minnie Mouse sweatshirts and bright dotty party dresses yet; the coolest way to wear the print is in muted hues and classic silhouettes.
To help you sport the trend, we’ve rounded up seven easy and sophisticated polka pieces bound to add a playful punch to your wardrobe. Here’s to finding your sweet spot.
