Seeing Spots

Posted on July 14 2011

Our new Mickey Mouse ears had us coming over all Disney recently, which got us thinking about 101 Dalmations and led us inevitably to one of our favourite retro prints, the polka dot. Invariably associated with more playful attire like bikinis and swimsuits, those stylish circles actually grace a much wider range of  items from barely-perceptibly patterned 1930s dresses to bold, '80s jumpsuits and, with Autumn set to be spotty, it's well worth the hunt for some vintage inspiration. A simple search for 'polka dot' at beyondretro.com opens up a whole world of spherical stunners, from daintily decorated '60s hats to bright, daring shorts; from casual blouses to formal skirt suits. We found ten pieces that we're absolutely dotty for; check them out below or see the whole round range here.
