If there’s one trend you’ll have seen creeping its way onto your Instagram feed this season, it’s probably the polka dot. Dating all the way back to the 1920s and the iconic character of Minnie Mouse, polka dots have been a staple print in fashion for decades. But depending on the season, this classic print can veer either on the side of high fashion, or its cartoon character origins. This summer, designers have hit the mark with fun monochrome pieces adorned by frills and flounces creating fluid silhouettes ideal for breezy summer afternoons. You’re bound to see plenty of polka dots while window shopping this week, but we’ve done the hard graft and given you our favourite high-street pieces perfect for curating your own dotty wardrobe.
