Selena Gomez will forever be a style icon in our eyes. Although she’s recently taken a back seat from performing sell-out shows, her wardrobe is clearly still filled with killer ensembles. 

The Rare Beauty founder posted a seriously adorable Instagram series to her 428 million followers yesterday to congratulate her musical maven boyfriend Benny Blanco on his new cookbook Open Wide: A Cookbook for Friends. Although the celebration was all about her beau, we take our eyes off the Love On singer’s 1950s-inspired mini dress.

It doesn't get cuter than this

The Disney actress' celebratory ensemble consisted of a bustier black and white halter neck polka dot mini dress with accenting silver buttons, a pair of sheer black tights and simple gold hoop earrings. 

She paired her cutesy dress with a middle-parted, slicked-back low bun and a glowing face of what we can only assume is Rare Beauty products.

The 50s housewife-esque polka dot style dress seems to be doing the rounds amongst the fashion set this spring, just a few weeks ago our style muse Alexa Chung shared an image of herself on holiday donning a similar maxi dress option.

Just days before Alexa’s polka-dot debut, songstress Olivia Rodrigo made a statement at Coachella in a red version of the same style dress. 

Hello! Fashion's Style Writer Chloe Gallacher explains that “The polka-dot print was most popular in the 1950s, seen on everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Elizabeth Taylor. As it ebbs and flows throughout the seasons, this year it’s having a revival.” 

We can’t say for certain but if Selena, Alexa and Olivia’s recent wardrobe choices are anything to go by, we have a sneaky suspicion that polka dot prints might just be this summer's most notable prints. Watch this space…
