Polka dots and checks offer a cool retro feel for summer
Polka dots are back again. But wait, there’s more! This season we’ve got another perennial favorite to enjoy, in the form of checks. You might think we’ve seen it all before; well we have—sort of. Both motifs are classics, yet this time around they’re anything but boring. Summer’s checked and spotted looks are not just the preserve of pre-teens. They have a cool, grown-up, retro feel. Large-scale dotty prints and oversized ginghams are brought up to date in interesting fabric combinations and textures. Spot-check this year’s offerings—they’ve never looked so good.
