Polka Dots

Today, I'm going to be talking about Polka Dots.
Polka dot is a pattern consisting of an array of filled circles, generally equally sized and spaced relatively closely in relation to their diameters. Polka dots are most commonly seen on children's clothingtoys, and furniture, but they appear in a wide array of contexts. The pattern rarely appears in formal contexts, however, and is generally confined to more playful attire such as bathing suits and lingerie. Occasionally, white-on-black small dots appear on more formal clothing.
Polka dots first became common on clothing in the late nineteenth century in the United Kingdom.

Here are some examples of Clothing that uses the pattern 'Polka Dot'.
As you can see, they are from a variety of different stores, from Decades, which is formal clothing, to Evil Panda, which consists of loud, creative clothing. Anyone can pull off Polka Dots!

Here are some celebrities showing off their inner Polka! 

So, what do you think? Will you be wearing Polka Dots anytime soon, on stardoll or in real life?
