ALL IN THE DETAILS: Modern Polka-dots

August 28th, 2015 at 2:05am

Wearing bold prints can be a little tricky for modern Fashionistas. When I spotted a fun and retro Fashionista this week, I was immediately drawn to her printed shirt and the way she styled it with her own cool aesthetic. Let’s walk through her cheerful outfit to end the summer semester on a sweet note!

The Fashionista is wearing an oversized polka-dot shirt in classic black and white. The retro print is not the easiest print to work with, but she pairs it well with simple black shorts. The understated black bottom is cohesive with the black polka-dots, so it makes the print stand out more. Her go-to handbag, the Proenza Schouler PS11, definitely dresses up the casual fit with its black smooth leather and signature buckle. Her black and white outlined sandals match her sweet shirt and add playfulness. She adds a little bit of color to her monochrome ensemble with a pair of purple reflective sunglasses.

I’m ecstatic for this fall’s fashion, but that doesn’t mean I won’t miss this summer’s sweet trends. This Fashionista really knew how to pull off a bold, unconventional print in a black and white ensemble. Her side braid ponytail also plays in character with the look she is achieving.

How To: Start off with a polka-dot shirt in black and white, so the rest of the outfit is easier to put together. Accessorize with fun shoes and sunglasses that are not over the top to keep the print as the attention factor.
