Some clothing pieces are just meant to take the world by storm. A year ago, our feeds were filled with everyone sporting that leopard midi skirt, or variations thereof. This year, it seems that we already have a nominee for the “it” dress of the year: Zara’s polka dot dress. Currently, the piece is taking over Europe, and surely, it's only a matter of time until it takes over the world. It’s become so popular that it led to the birth of an Instagram account, @hot4thespot, dedicated to posting sightings of the dress.
Faye Oakenfull, the stylist who runs the account with 4.5k followers, said it all started with an IG story of an awkward fashion moment. “Back in April, I was working on a shoot and both the Art Director and make-up artist turned up on set wearing The Dress,” she told the Stylist. It’s been quite a while since the account’s creation last May, but people have been actively submitting snaps of the dress since.
