This Topshop Dress Is Causing a Fashion Panic

Update 9/25/18: Topshop just released another version of the dress that caused a fashion panic, this time in a cheery floral. Time will tell if this one has as big an impact as the original polka dot, but we're not waiting until it's sold out to see!

Fashion has been officially invaded by polka-dot prints. Last winter you'd be forgiven for thinking that the dotty obsession would be settling down, but this spring, a polka-dot Topshop dress caused what we can only describe as fashion panic. It's a silky white dress with a V-neck front and back made of two clashing polka-dot prints.

With mixed prints, ruffles and a "how do I wear a bra with that?" neckline, it might sound like a tricky purchase, but somehow, it works perfectly. The dress has been re-stocked three times now, and each time has sold out as soon as it went online. Today, another similar style launched online, though in reverse: The new dress is black with white spots. Keep scrolling to see and shop the new cult polka-dot dress from Topshop.

Style Notes: The neckline might be a little low, but Erica makes it a dress you can wear with a bra without even having to think about it by layering a white lace high-collar top underneath.
