I have been loving polka dots lately. Aside from florals, it’s definitely one of my favorite prints this season. Not only is the polka dot a classic pattern that is easy to mix and match, it’s also a simple way to add a playful punch to your wardrobe.
When I decided to blog about my dotty love affair it got me thinking… Why is this print called polka dot anyway? Well ladies, I researched the matter and was surprised to find that there is a supposed relation to the origins of the polka dance! Who knew? Apparently, the print was popular right when polka music and dancing were all the rage. And the rest is history…
I especially love the dotted print in neutrals and classic combinations such as black and ivory, navy and black, or navy and white. It’s the easiest of all prints to mix, which is why it’s a staple in my closet.
