The polka dot print has been popular ever since the 1920s, Coco Chanel was a big fan and when Disney brought out Minnie Mouse in 1928 wearing her classic polka dot dress, the world went dotty for polka dots. They are usually of the same size with the same distance between them and this creates the neat appearance.
A huge variety of famous faces are associated with the polka dot accessory or pieces of clothing. For example, Winston Churchill was well known for wearing his classic polka dot bow ties and politicians have since enjoyed wearing polka dot ties in homage to him. Marilyn Monroe was famously photographed in a polka dot bikini in 1951 and the 50s were definitely the decade of all over polka dots. Skirts, dresses, swimsuits, women’s wear was dominated by the polka dot trend. There was even a famous song written in 1960 about that infamous teeny-weeny yellow bikini! In the Sixties, artist Yayoi Kusama’s work was full of polka dots and her message behind it is still discussed. The 1980s were when polka dot accessories really came into fashion. They’re still very much on trend now and we’re seeing a lot of them in both men and women’s wear collections.
