Now that Yayoi Kusama, the unofficial Queen of Polka Dots, has left the building (the Art Gallery of Ontario, that is), you might be feeling a spot of withdrawal (see what we did there?). And, let’s face it, your Instagram feed is also looking a little lacklustre. Luckily for you, Kusama’s favourite pattern is everywhere this spring, and it’s an easy print to inject into your wardrobe. From wedding-ready dresses to preppy accessories, here are 9 polka-dot items that are definitely ready for their close-ups—#nofilter.
We never thought we’d say sophisticated and shorts in the same sentence, but here we are. These navy and white polka dot shorts by Banana Republic have a sleek flat front and a slightly longer leg meaning they could even work in a business casual environment (and they could definitely work on the weekend).
Summer wedding season is right around the corner, and your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to find a flirty, figure-flattering dress that can go from casual cocktails to black tie. We think this dreamy georgette wrap dress by Michael Michael Kors ticks all the boxes. (Also: Polka dots.)
