Polka dots have emerged as this Spring/Summer’s biggest trend and judging by what I’ve seen of the new collections so far, it’s here to stay. I personally love polka dots and declared my love for it already here, but if you haven’t got into the trend yet, don’t despair. This print is easier to wear than you think.
If you don’t feel brave enough to wear it head to toe (polka dot dresses are everywhere!) why don’t you start with a smaller item like a top or even shoes! Polka dot shoes are so adorable (case in point).
But here I’m showing you hot to take it easy with polka dots and I can tell you this top has been on heavy rotation. It’s so easy to style, although it’s quite boxy and I do like to add a belt on it. It goes well with trousers and skirts as well.
If you’re new to polka dots, keep the rest of the outfit simple and stick to neutral accessories. Because I love this print I wanted to add a bit more colour to the look with my handbag. It’s my favourite styling trick – hence I have so many pink handbags – they’re the easiest way to add colour to your outfit. I actually wore this outfit for a breakfast at Laduree with my friend and then I went to work so I think it’s very versatile. Polka dots are smart enough for work but are still fun and playful. This outfit was comfortable but stylish, I definitely think the polka dots made it more interesting. What do you think?
This top is from 100% linen so it’s perfect for this heatwave and it’s now on sale! Get yours here.
Do you love polka dots?
Have a stylish day.
