'Dotty' about Polka Dots

Polka dots are loads of fun! Why not give them a try this season …

A few ideas on how to wear Polka Dots:
·         Wear them on their own
·         Mix them in with other Prints
·         Combine Oversized Polka Dots with Small Polka Dots
·         Wear Black and White Polka Dots for a more Formal Approach
·         Use a colourful Polka Dot to spice up a monochromatic outfit

Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie … Little bit of History:
According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, the Word “Polka Dot” was first used in the 1800s using the words ‘Polka’ and ‘Dot’. The Polka dance was very popular during that time and many products and fashions took the name “Polka”.  The dance was in vogue first in Prague, 1835; it reached London by the spring of 1842.
