Polka dots are set to be a hit pattern for Spring 2016.  Flying off the shelves faster than retailers can keep them stocked the trend is just beginning to take off.  Fun and playful, this is the perfect choice as moods lighten with the warmer weather.

Bold circle graphic print versions are the hottest with the most trend conscious women coming in bright saturated hues, along with more classic black or navy patterns.  Contemporary designs can include the mixture of other patterns such as stripes, florals, anchors, and fleur de lis designs layered together with smaller dots. Other designers are mixing colors into innovative designs such as ombre dots, or dots of multiple colors in the same garment.

Mixing black and white polka dots with the various shades of pink hot this year give the look a vintage Grease appeal, while shades of saturated yellow and orange are purely contemporary.  Greens, pinks, and blues are being used for both backgrounds and dot colors.

Tone-on-tone patterning is a more subtle option available this spring, often in sheerer illusion fabrics such as chiffon, mesh, lace, and tulle.

Dresses and skirts are coming in vintage 1940's and 1950's silhouettes.  Crisp cotton sundresses in polka dots are particularly popular with younger curvy fashionistas, while softer classic styles can be worn by women of all ages to work and to special spring occasions such as Mother's Day Brunch, Easter Sunday, and graduation parties later in the year.

Leggings and cigarette pant styles are moving so fast it was hard to find an example with a full size range still available, so if you want them, grab them immediately.  Expect to see them turning up in relevant Elegant Plus shopping directories that have regularly updated "Editor's Picks" all spring. Circle skirts with large, bold dots are moving almost as fast.  Both are super cute when worn with classic camp shirts and cardigans.

Those with more classic sensibilities who want to incorporate the trend will have plenty of options.  Some of the easiest and appealing touches include polka dot jacket linings that peek out of more conservative solids, cute patterned shoes ranging from canvas sneakers with jeans and shorts to chic pumps for skirts and dresses, and playful scarves that can take a classic work look and add a touch of whimsy.

Swimwear, lingerie, and pajamas are another fun way to play with the trend.  Many have a vintage feel with detailing such as high waists, halter necklines, and classic colors.
