The 16 Polka Dot Pieces We Need In Our Lives Right Now

How to rock one of fall’s top prints

After we analyzed the Fall 2018 runways when Fashion Month wrapped last March, there was one thing we knew for certain: Come September, we were going to see a ton of prints hit stores. From Cher Horowitz-inspired plaid to the moodiest of fall florals, the runways were alive with patterns and color.

One of our favorites to make a comeback and carry over from Spring 2018? The sweet and feminine, yet still sophisticated, polka dot. While polka dots have a rep for feeling “cutesy” (it’s Minnie Mouse’s signature after all), we saw them take on a whole new vibe thanks to brands like Creatures of Comfort, Katie Gallagher, and Loewe. Fast-forward to today, and elegant men's wear-inspired trousers, silky two-piece sets, and even sporty sneakers are getting the spotted treatment this fall. And, frankly, we’re obsessed.

In honor of one of our favorite print trends of the season, we rounded up our favorite polka dot print clothing and accessories to hit shelves this month—from granny chic handbags to grungy midi skirts. Check out our picks, below.
