Black and Yellow Polka Dot ShirtNew trends in prints come and go, but some classics like polka dots never fade out of fashion! Cute, flirty and ravishingly retro, they’re perfect for women of all ages!

The Backstory:

From bikinis to bags, small to large, deeper shades to pastels, polka dots are everywhere. Do you know how this classic pattern made its way in to fashion? Well, here are three good reasons…

The Polka Music:

Back in the 1840s, a genre of music called the “polka music” was much celebrated in Europe for its upbeat tempo. It was in those times that people started looking at clothes as a way of expressing thoughts, ideas and beliefs. When they were so immersed in the vibe of polka music, they wanted to show their love for the beat by wearing something that was full of life, fun and energy – and these big colorful dots were perfect!

The Yellow Bikini:

In the 1960’s, when the plain yellow bikini failed to impress, designers needed a refreshing change and in an effort, tiny black dots were sketched on the bikini. The pattern soon found its place in one of the epic songs of that time – “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini”.

Disney’s Minnie Mouse:

The polka dot frock worn by one of Walt Disney’s famous animation characters, the Minnie Mouse could even be a reason for its popularity!

Actor Jessica Chastain wore a black and white polka dot dress to the Madagascar 3 photo call at the 65th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France. The Alice in Wonderland star, Helena Bonham Carter was seen wearing a gray and white polka dot dress at the BAFTA Los Angeles Awards Season Tea in association with The Four Seasons and Bombay Sapphire, Los Angeles, California.
