The Classic Dress Style That Has Won Our Editors Over

The Classic Dress Style That Has Won Our Editors Over

Love dresses? Then you’ve come to the right place. It seems there’s a new contender for best summer frock, and it’s not of the floral variety. According to Instagram—and the majority of team Who What Wear right now—the print set to knock flowery dresses off the top spot is polka dot. Whether they’re in black and white or more adventurous colours (see Kitri’s pink and white version below), it’s fair to say that we can’t stop thinking about them. 

The best thing about this trend? It’s a style that’s not going to date, and play your cards right (i.e. pick a dress that makes you feel good and fits you well) and you’ll be wearing this hero piece for many years to come. Last year it was all about Zara’s spotted smock, a trending style that has well and truly set the polka dot tone for 2020. Brands have continued the long, languorous and loose theme, but this year they come with an accompanying puffed sleeve. At the top of my list is Kitri’s ’70s inspired belted number, which is sure to suit every body type and will bring a smile to your face (it’s literally the perfect shade of pink). Also, Ganni’s fabulous statement collar mini needs a mention—give it a few weeks and it’s sure to be all over Instagram. Scroll down to see and shop our full edit of polka dot dresses.

Style Notes: A black polka dot midi is now a firm favourite in the fashion girl’s wardrobe. Just add chunky sandals for comfy WFH style.
