Who doesn’t love a good throwback to the 50s. The one blast from the past today is courtesy polka dots. Honestly, we couldn’t be more glad about polka dots being this season’s IT-print. That said, we can’t help but feel that a little experimentation is long overdue. Polka dots have a reputation of looking cute, which is preferable if you’re going to brunch with family or for a carnival. But let’s face it, college or work and then drinks, that’s how a lot of our week’s look like. And if you’re wondering how to pull off these cute spots in a contemporary situation, you’ve come to right place. Take a look at 4 ways to wear it without you looking too cutesy. Read on…
With Voluminous Trousers
The easiest way to take polka dots from desk to drinks is to style it with flared trousers in black or navy blue. If you’re looking for something more boardroom appropriate, go for flared trousers with a chiffon blouse. In case you want to look chic at the art gallery opening post work, sport these with a polka dotted blouse that have voluminous sleeve.
Work With A Monochromatic Palette
Working with a monochromatic palette lends versatility to the otherwise-bright polka dots. And we suggest to reserve this look for the day. Go for monochromatic polka dots in a figure-hugging silhouette, style it with stilettos and a bold-hued bag to be party ready. You can also go for an A-line dress to look chic during the day.
Sport A Semi-Casual Dress In Polka Dots
Opt for a semi-casual dress with polka dots and cinch it at the waist using a belt. Wear this to brunch or alternatively as a work outfit. You can also go for a dress with sleeves as well as a crossbody bag for an outfit that is more work ready.
Layer It STAT
For days when you want to keep it casual and fun, break the monotony of your outfit by layering it with a statement piece that has cheery polka dots on it. Opt for tinier dots as these will not take the attention off your separates, and it will also make your outfit seem casual. Go for pieces like a light-weight jacket.
