Polka-dots, like stripes and leopard print have become a sort of classic neutral in that, you can wear them any time, anywhere. They’re relevant, modern, and fashionable. And like the other prints which fall under this same timeless style category, dots are easily mixed and matched for a bold statement. With a sort of 1960’s mod meets 1970’s rocker meets 1990’s grunge, from cutesy to bold, polka-dots are so fun and so playful right now, and mega-trending for Summer 2013.
