One of the best things about fashion is that a trend can come just as quickly as it goes. Polka-dots are a great example of that. After seeing polka-dots resurface on the runways back in 2011 and eventually to the red carpet, it was only a matter of time before they made their way to the streets and major fashion companies. If worn right, polka-dots can give you that extra edge in an outfit that you’re looking for!
Polka-dots are a great pattern when you want to add something fun to your closet. Whether big dots, small dots or little dots, there are plenty of ways to incorporate the look.
You can keep your look simple like this Fashionista does with the classic asymmetrical polka-dot dress or try a maxi version with this side silk polka-dot skirt. If you’re going to go with a polka-dot bottom keep the top a simple shade. In fact, whenever you wear polka-dots its best to pair your dots with a solid.
My advice would be to limit yourself to one polka-dotted piece at a time. If you’re wild about the look try something like these AG polka-dot ankle jeans they would go great with a white tied top or any basic top.
To change your look into something of a day to day outfit try this sheer polka-dot shirt with a pair of skinny jeans or this collared polka-dot tank with a pair of shorts. Even this polka-dot romper is worth the space in your closet.
For a night out, or for business go for something with more edge and more defined lining like this polka-dot blazer.
This is a fun trend that catches everyone’s eye. This week add some dots to your closet!
