Lately, polka dots can be seen everywhere. In fact, I’ve seen a lot of Chictopia members donning polka dots here and there. I didn’t intend to wear polka dots this day but I just ended up choosing this dress somehow. Perhaps great minds think alike? Kidding aside, Polka Dots is something I recommend to keep in the closet. It’s got that vintage and romantic feel that spruces up an outfit. Here are some tips on how to wear polka dots.
Don’t Overdo It
Limit the polka dots to one piece of clothing. While you can pair two different types of clothing that both have polka dot prints, make sure that they complement each other and not clash. For example, a skirt and a top with the same color and same size of dots can be too much to look at, especially if your top has long sleeves. If you need to pair polka dot tops and bottoms, it’s best to stick with different sizes. For example, wear little dots for your top and wear bigger spots for your skirt.
Mix With an Unlikely Print
Try mixing polka dots with another striking print like stripes or florals. While they are contrasting prints, it will bring out that fun side in you. If there’s one season to try out fun and bold prints, it has got to be summer!
Pair with Ruffles and Lace
If you want to channel a romantic and vintage look, mix your polka dots with ruffles or lace just like my dress I’m featuring. The white top part of the dress features a ruffled front panel that gives this dress a girly and romantic feel.
