Why we’ve gone dotty for polka dot swimwear

In July we teamed up with the gorgeous Ally from Substance Blog and she designed her very own Kini in a navy and white polka dot print. As always, she was ahead of the trends as polka dot is one to watch this summer, and she rocks it here in a slide triangle top with high waisted pant.

Much like nautical stripes, polka dots are a classic that never go out of fashion and they have a timeless chic about them. Updated for this summer, polka dots are making yet another come back as reflected by the catwalks and premium designers, such as this beautiful one piece from DKNY.

Ally thinks her bikini is ‘all kinds of amazing’, and we totally agree! White polka dots on navy adds a touch of high fashion, especially teamed with the block navy panels that surround her print. The blocks work to emphasise the printed parts, and you can use this technique to work with your body shape. For example, pear shaped ladies could emphasise their top halves with a polka dot printed top paired with a block colour pant for a bikini that is both highly flattering and strikingly on trend. If you aren’t sure what body shape you are, take a look at our helpful guide.

To make your polka dots stand out, try adding a cheeky frill or two for a flirty look that works beautifully in combination with any polka dot print. We are in love with this two piece designed by all round glamazon and founder of Romy and The Bunnies, Julia Roitfield who uses a baby pink frill to add a romantic and quirky dimension to her black and white spotted bikini.

As well as the classic black and white and trendy navy and white, we offer other polka dot prints if you feel like changing it up. With a love for all things retro on the rise, a stunning throwback option is red with white polka dots. Embrace your inner pin up girl, like Taylor Swift, and paint this vintage print on to a halter top and high waisted pant combination.

At Kini we love to see mixed prints that really embrace the originality of Australian style. Pairing the classic polka dot with block colours and stripes is an eye-catching way to update the timeless print, but why not try experimenting with florals for a wild and one off bikini? Teamed with our new jungle print, these high waisted bottoms create a new, exciting twist on the polka dot and we love them!
