99 Pretty Polka Dot Designs

From Bad Fashion Photography to Monkey Headphones

— October 25, 2011 — Fashion
There are few prints and patterns that give off an adorable, retro vibe as easily as pretty polka dot designs. Whether you're sporting the print on a swimsuit for a cool '50s look or lusting after the now infamous Stella McCartney sheer paneled polka dot dress that was donned by countless celebrities, it is clear that polka dots are here to stay.

For all of you guys out there, don't fret. There are plenty of polka dot designs for you, too. For example, take a look at the ultra cool polka dot high top sneakers in this list. It's hard not to obsess over shoes like these.

Sure, mixing a variety of different prints may be in fashion right now, but you can rest assured that the simplicity of pretty polka dot designs will never go out of style.
