2012 Fashion Trend: Polka Dots

Polka dot is a print that comes in and out of style almost every other year. It's cute, simple and happy. I always think of the print as childlike. Sometimes that can be a bad thing, but a little polka hear and there can give your outfit a bit of life. Check out some of this inspiration I spotted!

Make the pattern preppy and girly like below

Or grunge it up...

So what do you think? Do you like polka dots? Or do they remind you too much of Minnie Mouse?
