Street Style Trend Report: polka dots at Toronto Fashion Week

The weather’s too cold for teeny weeny yellow bikinis, but the fashion enthusiasts at David Pecaut Square this week are still showing love for polka dots. We’re not talking about understated, elegant little dots; these are full-grown spots adorning blouses, leggings, bow-ties and sweaters. The polka dot-clad are fully embracing the playfulness of the print, layering dots on dots (on dots) and mixing prints—one even threw in an oversized velvet bow. Hey, if you’re taking Minnie Mouse as a style icon, you may as well go for it.
