Polka dots are everywhere. They’re graphic and bold, eye-catching and playful – the perfect antidote to the dreary winter months.

Style starlets like Kristen BellEmma Roberts, Gwen Stefani, Jessica Alba and Diane Kruger have all recently been spotted wearing this season’s favorite print. Needless to say,  we’re officially in love with polka dots, which have been on the scene for quite a while and rarely leave our field of vision.

A sure fire way to transition your wardrobe into spring, polka dots were seen on the spring 2012 runways of Nina Ricci, Jenny Packham, Diane Von Furstenberg, Charlotte Ronson and Chanel, who all took the print to the next level.

A seasonless print, especially in a classic black-and-white color palette, polka dots can transform any dull outfit into a chic, slightly retro and romantic look.

The print can be worn casually on a pair of jeans, dressed up with sheer fabrics or even sequins, or work appropriate on a pretty blouse.

This season, be daring and mix polka dots and other prints such as stripes, or go all over polka dot, like in Celine’s 2013 resort collection.

However you may choose to wear the print, you’ll be sure to have others spotting your cool and playful style.
