Why We Love the Polka Dot Dress

by Emma Menteath, Editorial Lead

Polka dots may have first stolen our hearts back in the day thanks to our favourite cartoon character, Minnie Mouse, and songs like ‘Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini’ but like most trends, they’ve boomeranged back around.

Polka dots are fun and graphic and are a statement look that feels ‘put-together’ without having to be too serious – just look to Princess Diana or Kate Middleton for inspiration, both Royal fans of the polka dot print.

Whether you’re looking for an ideal night-time look or something casual for your park picnic, you can’t go wrong with our new polka dot midi dress. Thanks to its collared neckline and belted waist, this midi dress has been one of our most loved dresses this summer and we can see why.

"This mono spot shirt dress is a fun fresh piece to update any summer wardrobe. It’s a really flattering shape that can be dressed up with a block heel or down with a sandal or trainers," says Isla Skelton, New Looks very own dress designer. "I love the puff sleeve which gives an element of trend to this effortless shape."

Hands up if you this playful polka dot print dress will be making its way into your online shopping bag this summer…
