Polka dots.  They just seem to make everything so much more fun and whimsical.  Maybe they remind us of childhood carnivals and balloons; or, our favorite candies like bubblegum balls and gobstoppers. Whatever hold it has over us, every generation seems to love them and Summer 2013 children’s fashion trends are no exception. This season, designers are having more fun than ever by pairing them with bold chevron stripes.
