There are two very extreme trends doing the rounds right now; radioactive neon and tie-dyes on one end, a Dulux chart of beige on the other. But our eyes are dotted somewhere in between – towards the humble polka dot. Seems we’re not the only ones as search volumes for polka dot dresses have gone up 83% in the past month. More exciting than head-to-toe cream, more longevity than neon (which seems to be reaching it’s expiry) polka dot is the ultimate boomerang print, guaranteed to always come back around. We’ve sifted through all our polka dot numbers at SilkFred to bring you 5 of the best.
1. The wear-everywhere midi skirt
This midi skirt in light blue polka dot is making us want to picnic immediately. Impromptu barbecues, outdoor brunches, pub gardens, weekend roadtrips to the seaside – this midi is going everywhere with us. Pair with natural accessories for extra SS19 points.
2. The holiday dress
Pre-planning your outfit itinerary before going on holiday is an excellent idea… in theory. The reality never really goes according to plan though does, it? Think you’ll have have the time/ energy for a full-on costume change between pre-drinking cultural activities and post-dinner drinks? Think about this cami midi dress in brown polka dot instead – it works for both!
3. The staycation dress
You can’t spend *every* long weekend in the south of France, but you can spend every weekend in this yellow midi dress. The colour and print are screaming out for G+T tinnies in the park, while the plunge neckline gives it just the right touch of sexy that makes it a nice dinner date option too.
4. The wedding guest dress
This satin cami dress in a subtle polka dot print has wedding written all over it. Not only is it lightweight and easy to dance in, it’s a steal at £35 and can be worn again and again. Just pair with a block heel mule and natural accessories for a more dressed-down aesthetic.
5. The workaholic
We couldn’t curate a list of great polka-dots without including the ever-popular San Diego shirt in polka dot. It’s the kind of desk-friendly shirt you can happily take to the pub with you at 5pm. It’s so nice in fact, they made it in 10 more prints!
