I have covered styling polka dots for several times in this blog, probably because I can´t have enough of this pattern. It´s my second favorite after animal print. Don´t worry if you´re past thirty, no rules say you can´t wear polka dot at certain ages. And if there are naysayers who insist you actually can´t, their rules are meant to be broken. So, now that summer is round the corner, it´s an opportunity to plan for some girly and fabulous ensembles with this pattern. Remember, if you need help, there are timeless ways to wear polka dots.
Match a dotted top with the season´s hottest color
Dotted Top $64.50, Lace Skirt $75
Lace and yellow are two hot trends for spring and summer merged in a single skirt. These panels of hottest trends have worked their way down this picturesque pencil skirt. But what you probably haven´t anticipated is how gorgeous the skirt would look with a blue dotted shirt top worn with rolled sleeves and accessorized with spring pearls. Polish up the look with white pumps and white envelope clutch.
Revive that peplum top with dotted skinny jeans
Polka Dot Jeggings, $53
If you think you´re done with your peplum top, here´s a great way to rework it – with black and white dotted pants. It´s super gorgeous especially if your top hits on your first hip. This is definitely a coveted look of the moment as you are very well aware of the mono trend. Complete the look with black pumps and gold chain jewelry.
Style up the season´s pleat trend with white jacket
Pleated Navy Blue Polka Dot Skirt, $36
If you think hi-low style is so last year´s trend, this navy blue skirt is updated with spring´s pleat trend. Thus it´s actually a mix of three stunning features – hi-low style, pleated, and dotted. It looks super fabulous with a white top, white cropped jacket, and white pumps. It´s something you´d be delighted to wear to any formal gathering.
Do layering with colored dotted skinny pants
Teal Polka Dot Skinny Pants, $45
A revival of the classic colored pants is what you´d call this look. A teal green dotted skinny pant can be styled up with sleek layering. Wear a black sweater over a soft blue denim shirt then add a gold spike necklace. A pair of black ankle boots will give balance to the entire look as they match your sweater.
Go girly in monochrome polka dot dress
Black and White Polka Dot Dress, $45
Instead of mixing and matching, why not go for a one piece trend such as this monochromatic print, black and white polka dot dress? It´s a classic pattern that can always be revived and styled in many ways, making it very versatile. While black and white mono is a hot trend this season, you can still wear this dress in many seasons to come, either layered with a biker leather jacket, added with a pop of color through a blazer, or worn with stunning bright shoes. But if you keep it with the current trend, then black heels would be great to complete.
