The word Polka is derived from the Polish for the “Polish woman”. Polka dots are so feminine. Today when we wear them we inherit and embrace the legacy from the women who have worn them before us.
America’s love affair with the Polka dot began in 1926, when Miss America was photographed in a polka dot swimsuit. Shortly after, 1928, Disney introduced its cartoon darling “Minnie Mouse” wearing a red polka dot dress and a matching bow. And then, there was no looking back ….polka dots became the next big thing in the fashion scenario. Throughout the 1930’s polka dotted dresses appeared in stores nipped in ribbons and bows. And of course we all cannot forget the sexy damsel Marilyn Monroe in the polka dotted bikini, which lead to the creation of the HIT SONG of all times – “Itsby Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini – By Brian Hyland.
There is surely a nostalgia associated with the polka dots and they communicate a playful femininity and girlishness. Polka dots speak for themselves. When worn, they describe the mood and personality of a person.
A cute polka dotted dress is perfect for a date 🙂 …….I love the magic of bows on it too. However, my look is different from a polka dress to a fun and sexy style from the 80s. I love the loose polka top with these shimmery comfortable stretchy pants. Combined with each other they ooze an intriguing vibe. I smoked my eyes up as they add so much character to my attire. These pointed stilettos add an edge to the entire ensemble. Wear a watch or a cool bracelet to perk it up.
Try this look out for a nice fun evening or a party. I am sure you will be spot on!!!
