We’re digging the oversize print on Malaika Arora’s polka-dot shorts and jacket set. Her look is so affordable and easy to copy. For some dotted inspiration, just scroll to see how Malaika styled her spots. Can she get any more stylish?

Polka-dots have been around for ages, but some of our most-loved chic celebs have (literally) been spotted in the supercute print. After actor Sonam Kapoor made such a great case for polka-dots with her Mother Of Pearl midi dress at Cannes Film festival, Malaika Arora is making us feel the itch to buy polka-dots before this story is even finished.

The former VJ and TV personality showed just how polka-dots can turn a look from humdrum to high fashion in a snap. On Wednesday, Malaika looked as retro cool as ever wearing an unexpected nighttime look: Polka-dot separates from TopShop. By styling her cutesy black-and-white polka-dot jacket ($100) and belted shorts ($68) with a sexy black bralette, she proved the on-trend print can easily go from day to night (and look quite sophisticated, too).

Malaika finished off the outfit with natural make-up — a sweep of red lipstick and straight waist-length hair that looked both retro and fresh. But we especially loved how Malaika dressed up the feminine fashion print with some seriously sexy black slogan print DSQUARED2 heels — featuring open toe and back zip closure — and an equally chic red clutch from Saint Laurent. Although this may be a daring look for some, name someone better that could pull it off besides this dynamic woman.

Malaika’s out-of-the-box polka look isn’t a surprise. As the stylish celebs below are also making a splash with our favourite print. If you love polka-dots and you are in the mood for some summer shopping, these looks are exactly what you need.

In May 2018, actor Sonam Kapoor arrived at Cannes in a neatly tailored dress from Mother Of Pearl’s spring/summer 2018 collection– a black and white midi dress with ruffle bell cuffs, accented with a contrasting polka-dot neckerchief.

In May 2018, actor Kangana Ranaut gave her pink Vivien Westwood polka-dot dress a bit of edge with oversized brown sunglasses, which matched her signature highlighted curls.

In December 2017, actor Karisma Kapoor wore a one-shouldered Knya top with a polka dot Sachin & Babi skirt and a pink Valentino bag that matched her lip to a Christmas party.
