Trend Watch: Polka Pants

Dots Dots everywhere, not a dot to drink. Polka dots and summer have a long history and given the printed pants obsession this summer it's no surprise (and a delight) to see the dots dotting the pants.

Dressed up and dressed down, playful and edgy Poppy Delevigne, Kristen Bell, Taylor Swift and Gwen Stefani were spotted in their respective polka pants while just strolling down the streets to the red carpet. Kristen makes it dressy at the red carpet with a embroidered white button down, formal blazer, statement necklace and high slingback platforms, while Taylor Swift goes the effortless chic route with simple button down shirt and loafers paired with her polka dot ankle jeans, Gwen brightened her black and white polka pants with a colour pop pink jacket and red lips and Poppy Delevigne took the chic route with button down shirt, scalloped edged jacket and Ivory Platform sandals.

My favourite among the four is Poppy Delevigne. You?

2. Paige Polka Dot Denims (as seen on Gwen) - An edgy casual look can be easily pulled with these Paige polka denims. Pair it with a airy tee or dress it with a bright colour jacket to make it a day-to-night look. Finish off with some sleek heeled pumps.  

1. J Crew Capri in Polka Dot for £100 (approx Rs 9700, ships to India) - A retro-ish capri will grant you a chic head turner look with its giant dots. Wear it with flats (for working androgyny think orxfords, or go dressy with pumps). Add a pop of colour with a blouse or your jacket or go black and white with a pout of red lips.

Wear the polka with blazer, tee or tucked-in button down.

  1. Now this is a great trend! I saw a couple of polka dot pants at Forever 21 and I almost grabbed a pair but didn't have time to try them on. Great outfit ideas too.

  2. They actually look good... I should get myself a pair
