Polka dots & Peter Pan Collar

Polka dots & Peter Pan collar have been bloggers’ staples for the longest time. The collar keeps coming back on the runway, on the carpets, and on the wish list of men who are obsessed with polka dots. Meanwhile the dots have been everywhere from houses, to music videos, to insects….

Below, they can be seen together on a fashion blogger from Singapore; on a fashion blogger from Europe; in the Summer Collection of a London based fashion label-Dahlia; on an 18 year old art student from Wales, here.
