Polka dots

Black and white polka dots, whether ditzy or large, was another trend that straddled both the lingerie and swimwear collections and it was largely favoured by the younger end of the market. In swimwear, polka dots were seen across bikinis rather than one-piece swimsuits, but there was no distinction in sizing between lingerie and swimwear collections, with both opting for large and small prints. Most brands opted for two-colour combinations and co-ordinating trims, while more adventurous labels added prints, floral motifs and bows to the mix. Although the polka dots were either white or black, background shades were predominantly red or pink.
