Polka dots have undoubtedly made the jump from micro trend to major mainstream trend. First spotted (see what we did there?)  on the runways of Jacquemus, Self Portrait and Balenciaga, last season, our favourite digital influencers and BellaStyistas have since put their spin on the classic and we are in awe of all the different ways to style this. It is far more playful than prim and edgy accessories and sleek styling give it a modern edge.

Take inspiration from your favourite African influencers on how to style this trend from the red carpet to the boardroom.

Make a statement with voluminous sleeves, like Jennifer Oseh in this sheer blouse  and silver point toe heels.

Alexandria Sho Silva is vacation perfect in a contrasting polkadot look . The straw boater adds a jaunty yet chic edge.

Ugandan Beauty Lucy Bunyenyezi gave polkadots the red carpet treatment.

We love how Derin Odugbesan went for contrasting backdrops in unexpected colors, styled with on trend Jacquemus Les Rond Carré heels. This Re Lagos Coord is beyond!

Keep it chic in a one and done style like a maxi dress or jumpsuit as seen on Monica Awe Etuk, Nwando Ebeledike and Damilola Owoade.

Make it mini – whether in a dress or shorts like Agatha of Irony of Ashi and South African super influencer Bonang Matheba.
