Polka dots are back in a big way this year -- especially, dotted '50s-inspired dresses., Kelly Osbourne wore a blue and white polka dot dress to Lacoste's pool party. Though we could do without the cat-eye sunglasses, the floppy sun hat and socks with mocs were fabulous, too.

Nicole Richie partnered flat suede boots with a roomy floral frock for a hippie-chic look that can't be beat.
