Polka-dots have been around for ages, but some of our most-loved chic celebs have (literally) been spotted in the supercute print. After actor Sonam Kapoor made such a great case for polka-dots with her Mother Of Pearl midi dress at Cannes Film festival, Malaika Arora is making us feel the itch to buy polka-dots before this story is even finished.
The former VJ and TV personality showed just how polka-dots can turn a look from humdrum to high fashion in a snap. On Wednesday, Malaika looked as retro cool as ever wearing an unexpected nighttime look: Polka-dot separates from TopShop. By styling her cutesy black-and-white polka-dot jacket ($100) and belted shorts ($68) with a sexy black bralette, she proved the on-trend print can easily go from day to night (and look quite sophisticated, too).
Malaika finished off the outfit with natural make-up — a sweep of red lipstick and straight waist-length hair that looked both retro and fresh. But we especially loved how Malaika dressed up the feminine fashion print with some seriously sexy black slogan print DSQUARED2 heels — featuring open toe and back zip closure — and an equally chic red clutch from Saint Laurent. Although this may be a daring look for some, name someone better that could pull it off besides this dynamic woman.
Malaika’s out-of-the-box polka look isn’t a surprise. As the stylish celebs below are also making a splash with our favourite print. If you love polka-dots and you are in the mood for some summer shopping, these looks are exactly what you need.
In May 2018, actor Sonam Kapoor arrived at Cannes in a neatly tailored dress from Mother Of Pearl’s spring/summer 2018 collection– a black and white midi dress with ruffle bell cuffs, accented with a contrasting polka-dot neckerchief.
In May 2018, actor Kangana Ranaut gave her pink Vivien Westwood polka-dot dress a bit of edge with oversized brown sunglasses, which matched her signature highlighted curls.
