My mum still likes to call it a 'Bobby print' courtesy Dimple Kapadia of course. Remember her white tie-up crop top from the movie? Well, it was like an ignition that set everyone's heart on fire. An obsession that was hard to fight and difficult to resist. The print is simple, non-fussy and often appropriate for semi-formal and casual outings. It is bound to find a place in every girl's closet simply because it's not so difficult to fall in love with a polka dot outfit. I personally adore the print for being so uncomplicated. All you need is a solid background and you start drawing circles on it in contrasting colour. That's it. Sorted.

Polka dots are also silhouette friendly. Paint them on a skirt or a semi-formal shirt, hell even a saree - the final outcome would never be disappointing. And let's not categorise them as the easier print to play with. There's a lot of versatility that you can show when it comes to its sizes and motif placement. You can even pair with stripes and offer a mix of everything that's chic and oh-so-gorgeous. The print though missing in action for the past few years is finally making a comeback in 2020 and I have a couple of ideas that will help you slay in it. Have a look.

Though the print is less popular in street-style fashion and even on the ramp, designers in the west have finally started exploring it further. And we'd love to see them exploit it to an extent that we all become obsessed with it forever. How about designing a ballroom gown with this print? Or say a piece that's meant for Lady Gaga - bold and loud at the same time? It's a personal dream to see this simple print come out of its comfort zone and be a part of something that's absurd, intrepid and totally OTT. Anyone listening?
