Polka dots are a print most often associated with the 1950s, especially when they're oversized and in kitschy colours. In the eighties, designers and high street shops alike loved to re-appropriate that fifties look, giving a distinct new slant to many style points. This Polka Dot Cup Dress by Rare is a perfect example of the clash of those two eras working in fashion's favour.

The structured cups at the bustline give this dress the eighties edge, aping the underwear-as-outerwear trend sported by many icons of the time. Finished in a bold, bright red the dress has a fun and youthful take on retro style.
