Pretty in Polka Dots
There are prints that come and go and prints that stand the test of time. Polka dots most certainly fall under the latter category. Indeed, most seasons you’ll find this darling dotty pattern at some point or another. But for spring and summer 2018, it’s especially popular.
So, in order for you to rock this timeless print this season, check out our dos and don’ts, along with some runway to red carpet to reality inspiration!
The 5 Dos and 5Don’ts of Polka Dots
… wear them with other size polka dots.
… pair them with stripes, plaid, or florals.
… rock them on not only your apparel, but also your shoes, bags, or accessories.
… dress them up with heels or down with sneakers.
… pull them out for work or a weekend brunch with friends.
… wear too many polka dots at once – i.e. no more than three different pieces of your outfit. And only try mixing three different polka dots if you’re a style maven like Blair Eadie!
… opt for more deconstructed silhouettes when wearing red, white, and black polka dots together, as to avoid looking like Minnie Mouse – not that we are opposed to a little #MinnieStyle when you’re planning a trip to Disney Land!
… be afraid to pair polka dots with another print.
… stick to just neutral polka dots; colors are so fun in this print!
