4 DREAMY WAYS TO WEAR POLKA DOTS
By Maybelle Morgan, 30 August 2017
Polka dots may sound more Minnie Mouse than sleek street style, but this year the nostalgic print has had a modern update and we’re very into it. See how these four #AsSeenOnMe babes are signing on the dotted line…
There’s nothing like a monochrome setup to serve as a chic canvas for your polka dots of choice. The centrepiece of this look is the oh-so-pretty white blouse, featuring a retro button front, tie waist and flared sleeve. White jeans and a mesh bag add a distinct holiday feel, while scorching red lippie and gold earrings up the glam factor.
If you’re all over that polka dot thing, then go hard for your end-of-summer fancy occasion. This wrap-front midi dress contrasts larger spots with subtle polka dots, but the flirty ruffles take it from twee to dressy. Finish with minimal accessories and barely there strappy heels.
Spot the dot
Don’t be afraid of the clash, especially when it looks as good as these tapered trousers. Keep all eyes on the polka dots and vibrant florals by pairing with a plain white tee and black sliders. Opt for a bold red denim jacket to finish and you'll have a statement 'fit that's weekend ready.
New to the polka-dot game? Then it’s all about a muted colour palette and subtle print. Take notes from this blogger's crisp white shirt with teensy black spots. Wear it tucked into black skinnies and use hardware accessories to amp up the luxe look: think a chain cross-body, buckle belt, gold aviators and studded baker boy hat.
