I am a lover of all things polka dot. So when I saw these two polka dot pieces – one top, one bottom – I knew I had to have them… and wear them both at the same time. The thought of wearing a polka dot top with a polka dot bottom can make one conservative cringe. But with the right proportion, colors and styling, they can actually make one refined and classy outfit. Here are some tips on wearing two polka dot pieces together:
1. Keep the colors to a minimum and preferably use mostly neutral colors. I chose 3 colors so as not to make the look too loud.
2. Choose accessories that are simple and delicate as opposed to huge statement pieces. Polka dot print is already a big statement so don’t over do the accessories.
3. Break the two pieces together with a belt. Belt always helps refine an outfit!
4. Make sure the dots aren’t of the same size in the top and the bottom. Keep the dots in one piece smaller than the other. I prefer to use smaller dots in the bottom since it’s the one with the larger fabric, meaning more visible. I don’t want it to be screaming in your face.
