Polka Dot Poise

The traditional print is no longer confined to informal, girlish attire

Implications - Polka dots, once reserved for informal, schoolgirl attire on the playground, is getting an haute couture makeover. Designers are incorporating the traditional print into elegant products for menswear, dog clothing, interior design and kitchen accessories. No longer indicative of innocence, polka dots are now more readily used by designers.
