Women’s Style: Dots

By Olivia Cuccaro

Black-and-white motifs dotting our clothes, shoes and accessories have been in style as long as we can remember. The graphic icon has had a place on Marilyn Monroe’s ruffled bikini, Twiggy’s mod accessories and countless runways. Frank Sinatra even crooned about Polka Dots and Moonbeams. The polka dot is a whimsical pattern that seems to have a place in every season. See this editor’s picks for the dot trend below.
