One of the many runway trends from the Spring 2012 collections was the use of polka dots, large and small. We saw them at Luca Luca, Adam, Suno and Tory Burch.

Hollywood stars have gone dotty for the trend as it has been popping up on the streets of LA and New York.

Jessica Alba wore a Lovers + Friends polka-dot top with slouchy boyish Current/Elliott chinos for playtime in the park with her kids.

Katie Holmes casually styled her halter polka-dot top with fitted jeans. Miley Cyrus gave the feminine trend an edge with her biker boots and Keira Knightley added retro red shorts to her black polka-dot blouse.

I love how pretty and feminine polka dots are – they form a simple yet classic print that will remain in your closet for years, plus they’re much less overwhelming than a large floral or graphic print.
