Polka dots are popping up for spring, and they’re cuter than ever. How so? They’re not your average dots!
This playful print has taken on a chic new look. The latest round of polka dots include:
Oversized Dots: Large, exaggerated dots create a dramatic, rather than a sweet look.
Irregular Shaped Dots: Some dots have a less than round shape. They’re softer and slightly jagged, giving the print a modern feel.
Unusual Dot Patterns: Dots arranged in unusual patterns are popular, or dots combined with other print like florals or stripes.
Other New Trends in Polka Dots Fashion:
- Textured, raised dots
- Metallic dots in gold or silver
- Colorful Dots like the rainbow
- Colorblocked Dots: A concentration of dots in one place for figure emphasis.
Polka dots are a classic print but can look juvenile at times, so if you are wondering how to wear polka dots, here are some things to consider.
1. Choose Dotted Clothing with a Streamlined Silhouette
Wear Dots on streamlined pieces like sheath dresses, rather than on layered frilly, feminine items. This makes for a more mature, sophisticated look.
2. Don’t wear Polka Dots all over unless You know what you are doing
Too many dots can get crazy/busy, and make you look a confused mess, so best to keep it simple. If you want to combine dots head to toe, then choose two different size dots in drastically different sizes.
This woman above has the right idea. White and red polka dots pants look clean and fresh when worn with a neutral top. The plain colored top balances out the pants and makes her look playful but not kiddish. See how the pants take center stage? Dots with stripes is more for the major fashionistas too.
3. Pay attention to what size of dots you wear
Some say bigger dots belong on bigger frames and smaller dots belong on smaller frames. This is true to a point, but personality also comes into play.
4. Try Dotted Accessories
Dots are elegant and less loud when worn as accessories. A black dress with a black and white polka dot bag is easy for anyone to wear.
5. Think about the Color of Your Dots
High contrast black and white dots are bolder and more dramatic than low contrast taupe and white polka dots. If your coloring is fair, it is easier to wear low contrast dots that don’t overpower.
