The great thing about polka dots is their flexibility. Don’t believe it? The spring shows have seen plenty of range for the classic pattern, none quite like those seen at Sportmax in Milan. Giant polka dots were softened on monochromatic looks like slip dresses and sweaters. In New York, a more business-like tone was struck by Michael Kors in a micro dot pattern, while Burberry Prorsum offered something playful by pairing the trend with stripes. And how could we go this season without pairing dots with spring’s very popular florals? Oscar de la Renta couldn’t seem to resist.
