Clothes are a necessity in our lives. While some might go about it as if it’s a burden that they must deal with on a day-to-day basis, others are so involved and in love with finding that perfect outfit that it consumes hours upon hours and not rarely, even a lot of money. Nevertheless, we can all agree that the right outfit will not only make you look more presentable, but it is also a confidence booster.
With all that being said, we are launching a new series of articles about clothes, where we will discuss different trends, styles and patterns. Each of the articles will have a sample outfit recommended by us, with information for every item included.
For the first one, we thought it best to open with polka dots. They have been around for so long and never go out of style.
For those not acquainted with polka dots, they are evenly sized and spaced dots all over a piece of fabric. Traditionally, they were used by flamenco dancers, but then they spread and became a fashion style.
When most of us think of polka dots, Minnie Mouse comes to mind, with her red dress with white dots and the matching bow. She was created in 1928 by Disney, and since then the polka dots have been used in so many different pieces, with the dresses, of course, being still the mostly used and designed around this style.
As it is common knowledge, if a celebrity wears something, it becomes a trend afterwards and that’s actually how polka dots became famous, when Miss America 1926 wore a swimsuit with polka dots all over it. Nowadays, celebrities still continue to wear clothes with polka dots on them.
As you can see, Jessica Alba is wearing a Tory Burch white dress with blue polka dots. Miranda Kerr was photographed in the “Space Cadet” jumpsuit from Beck & Bridge, with an open neckline, in black fabric and white polka dots.
In Dior‘s hot couture event, Cameron Diaz wore a dress from the fashion house itself, a beautiful dress, with short sleeved and a belt around the waist. And proving that polka dots can go with any style, Olivia Wilde rocked this white and black dots skirt by Mark Jacobs.
Now let’s head on to our outfit selection for this trend.
We have come up with a casual outfit, which looks youthful and it is so comfortable that you can wear it whenever you please. And of course, there are accessories to go with it, and a bag, so you can have a complete image of how to mix and match clothes.
