Polka dot clothes are cropping up – or should it say popping up – everywhere this spring. It’s a fun and playful trend, especially when you wear polka dots in stylish new ways. If you worry that polka dots might come across as too juvenile and think you should take a pass, these four modern examples of how to wear polka dot clothes this spring may just change your mind.
Polka dots a great way to inject a little fun and playfulness (read: life) into your look, but you want to make sure you don’t look too juvenile so look for polka dots in pieces that work for the 40-plus gal. A feminine, floaty dress like this one is a great option. You can wear it to work in a more casual work[lace, to church, or out to dinner. With a black and white polka dot pattern like this, a shot of red – like the one from this ladylike satchel – works wonders.
If dresses aren’t your thing, then how about a pretty polka dot skirt. Keep your top simple and neutral to let the dots pop. A black shoe would be fine but I love these pretty pink pumps for an unexpected touch of color.
A more casual way to wear polka dots is to add a polka dot top to your favorite pair of jeans. A black and white polka dot top is a natural with white jeans. To keep it modern, look for modern details like the bell sleeves on this cute top. Wear this with a pair of sneakers or casual shoes for running out for coffee or lunch with your girlfriends.
Black (or navy) and white polka dots are a classic but for a more modern take, try a polka dot print top in an unexpected color like this pretty peach sleeveless blouse. This feminine blouse looks fantastic with blue and white jeans alike. The color is so fresh and delicate so keep your shoes and accessories light.
