Forget sequined dresses or metallic skirts — polka dots reigned supreme during this new year’s eve festivities. Fashion girls in the likes of Liz Uy, Nicole Andersson, Vina Guerrero, Gabbi Garcia and Elisse Joson all rang in 2018 wearing this retro print, and it was quite easy for anyone to spot it. Some of these dotted looks were prim and playful as how it normally goes, but others were surprisingly edgy too.
While it has been a local belief that round shapes (AKA coins, oranges, or polka dots) signify a prosperous year ahead, it seemed like the coin-sized print was extra appealing to many fashion girls this new year, and we can see why. The once old-fashioned spotty print has been making a modern mark, thanks to designers Rodarte, Jacquemus and Carolina Herrera, easily making it a trending print this coming Spring (move away, florals). In fact, even couture gowns were unexpectedly adorned with the classic print, only proving that it comes with no limitations!
