Channel Your Inner 6-Year-Old With These Grown-Up Polka-Dot Pieces

Let’s be serious: Polka dots are downright merry. And, though the festive pattern can read a bit juvenile on accessories like headbands and rain boots, designers have (finally!) bestowed the motif on more grown-up garb like blazers, skinnies, and button-downs. A much-needed update, if you ask us.
Now that the whimsical design is a little less cute-as-a-button and a lot more on-trend, we’re happy to be seeing spots on the regular. And, as with most graphic patterns, they’re best when layered up (think: microdot tights with a cardigan with oversized circles).
Still, if you’re hesitant to get into the dotted trend, we rounded up 15 adorably chic polka-dot pieces that are playful enough to stand alone. You’ll be a pattern-play vet in no time.
