Trend Alert | Polka Dots Done Your Way !
I LOVE Polka Dots. So I am thrilled to see that they have made a come back in a big way this season. I remember as a kid my favourite song to sing was ‘ itsy-bitsy, teeny-meeny, yellow, polka dot bikini….’ and I believe this print is so versatile and complimentary that everybody can wear it their way. Unlike stripes (I don’t love them much), Polka Dots can be used add glam and old school charm to just any outfit. I am sharing a few ways that I think Polka Dots can be styled. You can check out all the fashion websites and look for your fave pieces this season and keep them for every season because Polka Dots are just so classic and evergreen !
- Print on Print – Versatile and easy to style you can experiment with Polka Dots and still end up looking chic.
Wear a Polka Jacket and style with a print T shirt. My fave one is a T shirt I got from PR Sri Lanka’s collaboration with Anouk.
Polka Dots on Polka Dots is also a fun way to style your look. Add a solid colour accessory to tie it all together.
Polka with Stripes is something a lot of people like to try out – not my personal fave because I don’t like stripes but you could try it out and see if it works for you.
2. Polka Dots for Work Wear – Boss Babes can incorporate Polka Dots in a subtle way. Of course always make sure whatever you wear is classy and comfortable. Style Polka Dots with a pastel blazer or suit set.
Add a simple scarf to add some oomph to an otherwise, boring outfit.
3. Holiday Outfits made easy and fun – Polka Dots are so fun to style that you can make sure you look good when you take pictures on your holidays –
Summer Styling made easier with a nice wrap top and a mini or pants. Add a layer in bright colour to make the whole look bright and fun.
No matter whether you are heading our for the summer or a holiday where you will need to layer up, a simple Polka Dot piece of clothing can add glamour instantly to your look. Team a Polka Dot skirt with a solid sweater. Or a Polka embellished sweater with pearls for an evening out…
Or add some feminine glam with a sheer skirt like this one above.
Layer the look with a neutral bag and trench.
Or simply wear a Polka Dot top or blouse with a pair of jeans.
Whatever your style there is ALWAYS a way to incorporate Polka Dots into your outfit. Easy to find, I recently bought a beautiful Polka Dot summer dress during the EORS sale at Myntra. I am sure while the sales are on you can get some classic, evergreen pieces to add to your wardrobe as well ! I prefer getting either pieces that will stay with me for years to come or then buy them in breathable fabrics made sustainably.
