Carolina Herrera Spring 2020

When spring (finally) rolls around, most of us expect to see tons of florals popping up everywhere. But for Spring 2020, there’s another pattern coming for our closets: polka dots. Spots were spotted all over the Spring 2020 runways, from Carolina Herrera to Balmain to Sacai and many more. And these aren’t the Minnie Mouse-esque prints you wore when you were a toddler. We’re talking see-through dresses, dotted blazers and high-waisted pants. Whether you like your polka dots tiny or boasting a wider circumference, there’s a polka dot piece for you. The best part? You don’t have to wait till it gets warmer to show your spots. Just remember everything we taught you in Layering 101.
