Backstage at Carolina Herrera SS20 Runway

The best polka dot pieces to buy now

Posted by for Fashion

Polka dots were the biggest print on the runways for ss/2020. In a crowded market of spots, these are the best pieces to buy now.

After the runaway success of Zara’s polka dot dress last summer, it seems the high street (and designers) have gone mad for polka dots. In a season of prints, the polka stood out as the go to for many designers and brands. 

Altuzarra, Carolina Herrera, Dries van Noten, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors Collection all sent polka dots down their runways for ss/2020. Each designer had a different take on the classic print; varying the size of the spot and the combination of black and white, but always sticking to the tried and tested monochrome palette.
