So I recently bought a polka dot skirt at my favorite vintage store, and i have no idea what to pair it with. My skirt is a swing tea length skirt. I have seen examples of it, but im not a heels kind of girl. Any ideas?

some cute oxford-type shoes should look nice, I wear my longer skirts with a pair i bought from Vans called “Sophie,” I didn’t see them online but they have them in store! Maybe you could try a button-down, either short-sleeved or long with the sleeves cuffed once or twice in a plain color. Or when it gets to be more summery maybe a pretty floral tank top to set off the polka dot print (: I hope this helps!

Wear them with oxfords or flats. For casual, everyday wear, I’d wear it with a solid, bright shirt and/or a denim shirt/vest. I think it’d also look cute with a striped shirt or another contrasting print on top. :D

I love sherbet orange with black and white polka dots; try the bright hue in a classic shape, like a button down or cardigan.

For a more suble, sleek look, a white button down or simple tee would also be lovely. Flats or pumps, depending on how casual/professional you want to look.

Try a pair of oxford flats, ballet flats or wedge sandals.

I agree with most of the other girls…oxfords or flats, in a bright color…that would be fun!

Sleek black flats are my go-to! Try some peep-toes flats, too!.

Brights are always fun with polka-dots, but I try to stay away from orange when I’m wearing polka-dots. I’ve found it makes them seem clownish instead of cute. You might feel differently tho!

Oooh, I agree with catiekat! Peep toe flats would be so cute and would totally accentuate that vintage vibe. Maybe a bright top like hot pink, green, or a bright blue would look pretty with it. Polka dots are so much fun and you can wear pretty much anything with them. It just depends on the look you’re going for!

I agree with the others, oxfords are always a great match with skirts. You could try pairing the skirt with a bright colored sheer button up, or even just a plain button up. I always try to wear bright colors when wearing polka dots :)

You can definitely do flats with that skirt. Some bright colored open or peep toe flats with girly details will look really cute- maybe in a pastel link a mint green or red because it always looks cute with black and white polka dots. Modcloth has the cutest flats and everything is retro inspired. So if thats the look you’re going for it would be good to check them out :)
