5 most trendy ways to style polka dot outfits

Polka dot is probably one of the most timeless trends which have been here for decades and it is here to stay. We have seen our favorite celebrities wearing these patterns– from Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn to Miranda Kerr. Polka dot is a fashion statement! The appealing dots create a pleasant visual effect which usually appears classy and chic. I absolutely adore polka dots! However, the key lies in the way you style your polka dot outfit. I’m sure you don’t want to look like Minnie Mouse. There is something about this trend which makes it appear child-like and this is something which we would definitely like to avoid. Especially in my case as I always get the remark that I look younger than my age. It’s a good thing but sometimes it can also have some disadvantages. Anyway the point is: you should surely invest in polka dot outfits but at the same time make sure that you style it the right way.

Here are some tips for styling your polka dot outfits to look on point: 

1. Wear it with red
As you see in my photos, I’m wearing a black and white polka dot dress. To spice up the look, I used my red scarf as a head band and also paired the outfit with my red heels. Red is a versatile color and suits black and white polka dots perfectly. The red tone adds a pop a color to the outfit and makes it look lively. Also, a beautiful make up won’t go unnoticed. Red lips looks awesome with this outfit, don’t you think so?

2. Adopt a vintage style
Polka dots can easily fit in the vintage category. This reminds me of Julia Roberts in the movie ‘Pretty Woman’, where she wears the brown polka dot dress to the polo game. This is a perfect vintage outfit example. Add a gorgeous hat, gloves, white heels, pearl accessories and I promise you will be ahead of the game! 😉

3. Mix with denim or leather for a bolder look
If you have a bolder style and don’t want to look all cute and sweet, you can still opt for a polka dot outfit. If you have a polka dot dress or jumpsuit, you can pair it with a leather or denim jacket to look edgy. You can also add a choker necklace and stud earrings to complete the look. A leather pant with a polka dot t-shirt and a nice handbag can also create a bolder style.

4. Use different patterns
Mixing polka dots with other patterns sounds risky right? It’s actually not as risky as it sounds. The key is to mix it with the right patterns. For example: you can style a black and white polka dot skirt with a stripe shirt. You can also use a top of big polka dots with a skirt of small polka dots pattern. But remember to go easy with the accessories and shoes to avoid a fashion disaster.

5. Make it formal
Lastly, if you want a more formal or classy look, you can opt for a polka dot blouse which you can pair with slouchy pants and a nice blazer. High heels are a must for this look and of course a lovely make up.

My dear fashionistas, I hope you got some great styling tips for wearing polka dots and now you can rock those outfits 😉 I’d love to hear your comments! Also, don’t forget to follow me on instagram for more fun xoxo
