Trend Alert: Polka Dots

June 13, 2005 by LauraD

It’s hard to call this classic print a trend when it’s been making a lasting impression since the 1840s. Remember that brown dress with the white polka dots that Julia Roberts wore in Pretty Woman? Of course you do. But the playful polka dot has been embraced in a big way this summer with designs that will have fashionistas seeing spots on just about everything. Ambitious shoppers can splurge on designers who helped spark this trend revival like Marc Jacobs and Derek Lam, but this versatile print offers something for every budget and every style. Look sporty in spotted sneakers from Keds or a flirty halter dress from Betsey Johnson. Play it pretty in a demure silk skirt by Lemon or go to the beach with polka dots by DKNY. Keep in mind that polka dots have great staying power, so smart shoppers will get a lot of mileage out of classic styles. Find more spot on looks at Bluefly.com and save on polka dots by Marc Jacobs on Ebay.
