Tuesday Trend Day: Polka Dots

You might associate polka dots with little kids for a good reason, children look adorable in polka dots but adults can also pull off this timeless trend. Polka dots always put me in a good mood. According to Merriam Webster the polka dot pattern was first introduced in 1857. Definition: a dot in a pattern of regularly distributed dots in textile design.

Polka dots might remind you of spring and summer clothing but can wear them into the fall as well. Wear a top, jeans, a skirt, or an accessory with this pattern. Pair polka dots with almost any other trend even more polka dots. I found some fun examples while shopping online.
