Dots and Circles: The Vintage Style!



Vintage StyleThere are many trends that come and fade but vintage styles like the polka dots never run out of fashion! They started gaining fame ince the late nineteenth century in the United Kingdom and still remain a trend today. The term first appeared in a magazine in 1854 and reached the fashion popularity, where the name has been left intact over the years!

Let’s take a peek on how these pretty dots gained its popularity over the years:

The first celebrity to wear the polka fashion was none other than our own Minnie Mouse! In 1928, the Walt Disney studio brought Minnie mouse to life dressed in a bold, polka dot skirt. Can you believe a cartoon mouse popularized this dress? But, this was just the first step that polka dots had made into the fashion world!

In 1940s and 50s, the trendsetters and female beauties like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor sported polka dot designs and brought them to a new crest in fashion. Marilyn Monroe’s polka dot swimsuit which she wore in  the movie, There’s No Business Like Show Business, still remains the top iconic bikini moments!  But, it was Lucille Ball’s polka dot dresses in the TV series I love Lucy, which made it a wardrobe staple for every American lady.

A decade away, and the polka dots have stayed as a classic to style for all seasons! We frequently see them worn by celebrities on and off the red carpet. In bold or vibrant, soft or subtle colors, this style from the past always exudes flair.
