Nostalgic, chic, feminine and versatile. These are just a few of the qualities that makes polka dots so charming.
Polka in Czech translate as ‘little woman or girl’. Where the name polka dot, is not entirely certain. A theory is that the close cluster of spots resemble the energetic steps from the polka dance. One of the biggest mainstream introductions to polka was Disney’s Minnie Mouse in 1928. The 1930’s saw the dots increase in popularity, Couture finally gave into polka in when Christian Dior used them for his ‘New Look’.
As a huge fan of polka dots, it is in my humble opinion, a style that never dates. Frankly there is no such thing as too much polka dots.
