Polka Dot

Polka dot is a pattern that consists of an array of filled circles and dates back to the nineteenth century in the United Kingdom.

America's love affair with the polka dot began in 1926 when Miss America was photographed in a polka dot swim suit.
 We could not find pictures of that Miss America so we will make do with that of Marilyn Monroe.
And the love affair continued with Mrs Obama spotting polka dot print outfits on different occassions.

We tried to find out when it became known in Nigeria but no luck(if you do know please let us know via comments).

As seasons come and go,polka dot never goes anywhere.It is a persistent trend,a classic in fashion history.

Polka dots are fun and delightful to wear for all ages.

Even Minnie wears it :)
As costume

You can find them on most things ranging from lingerie to shoes and on the runway.

Even men are not left out in the polka dot game :)

Polka dots can easily transform your dull look into a chic and slightly retro look.
They are one of the most eye catching and striking prints.
Vintage Closet does not believe in any fashion rule(s) so we won't post any rule(s) that guides doing polka dots though there are a few out there.

Polka dots  are the easiest to mix with other prints......mixed prints thingzzzzz
Over to you now,please send pictures of you in polka dot to see how you styled it.
