Polka dots oscillate between precious and powerful, but whether you go for a microprint or a more graphic take, they are timeless. And this season they’re especially on trend. Regardless of your preference (retro one-piece or frilled bikini?), spotted swimwear comes with a refreshingly forward vibe for 2018.

“Polka dots have made a big comeback in ready-to-wear and resort wear,” says Candice Fragis, buying and merchandising director of the retailer, Farfetch. “They’re bold but not loud, feminine and flirty, retro and demure—so they really speak to so many different styles.”

“They really speak to so many different styles.”

Those unabashed by a directional aesthetic should consider donning the pattern in a vivid hue or mix and match dotted motifs with various prints. “The great thing about polka dots is they surprisingly work [with] almost any print and color—stripes and floral for a more abstract look, block colors and brights work well, too,” says Fragis.

Polka dots aren’t the only print proving popular this season. Leafy, tropical plant motifs and graphic black-and-white color blocking are buzzy this summer, too.
