Love dresses? Looking for something new? Then you’ve come to the right place. It seems there’s a new contender for best summer frock, and it’s not of the floral variety. According to Instagram—and the majority of our office right now—the print set to knock flowery dresses off the top spot is polka dot. Whether they’re in black and white or more adventurous colours (see Zara’s yellow and brown version below), we can’t stop buying and wearing them.
Below you’ll see a few members of our team with their chosen spotty styles (ranging from a layered shirtdress through to a full-on wedding guest gown), and then you can shop some of our additional favourites too (because there’s no rulebook on owning just one).
Be warned: The polka-dot dress has already reached cult status. Everyone from our editors to Lucy Williams is giving them a go.
Whether you’re looking for a navy midi for work, a silky slip for summer days, a swishy statement number or something a little more formal, there’s no shortage of options. Scroll to see and shop our favourite picks.
