STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Polka-Dot Perfection

Style Advice of the Week

Sometimes we need a little pep in our step, and prep or not there’s no denying that polka-dots are spring time perfection. While studying abroad learning how to mix and match your basics is vital. This Fashionista found a way to brighten up her look with a classic print that’s girly, fun and oh-so versatile.

She started off her outfit with a white T-shirt under a thick purple knitted cardigan. She kept with the knit vibe by rocking a bulky, gray infinity scarf on top. The pieces work perfectly together because not only are they a similar texture but they create a wonderful cool color palette.

To keep with the cool tones she chose a navy blue and white polka-dot skirt. Who says purple, blue and black can’t go together? The white dots match her white T-shirt effortlessly and give off a nautical vibe. The polka-dots, in my opinion, are a great print because they are flattering, never too busy and the perfect way to pump up a outfit full of solids like this one. You can find an awesome polka-dot piece from retailers like J.Crew of course, the ultimate one stop shop for a preppy pick me up.

The style of the skirt is worth noting as well. Skater skirts are the perfect spring time outfit booster. They are girly, versatile, comfortable and fun. If you want to be like this Fashionista, all you have to do is find a printed skater skirt that matches your style, pair it with some thick black leggings and your favorite booties. You will be fashionable, functional and ready to go.

So as the days go on this spring, the sun gets warmer and the urge to pull out our favorite spring staples gets stronger, take a page from this Fasionista’s book. A sunny day or any day for that matter, can be the perfect excuse to mix in a flirty polka-dot print to your outfit.
