If the animal print shows the “wild” side of you, the polka dots are the equivalent of outfit fun done with style.
I bought this dress a few years back especially for the dots, and I still love it and wear it even now. The style of the dress is quite classic, but the dots give just the right amount of “fun” to make it interesting.
This is the kind of print that some love and others “fear”, as they don’t know exactly how to wear it so they won’t look like school girls.
First of all, choose classic pieces like a pencil skirt, office dress, classic pants, simple shirt, blazer etc. (click on the pictures)
To play it safe, choose a single piece with polka dots and mix it with solid colored pieces.
Want to get out of the safe zone and mix it like a pro? Try mixing different prints. Polka dots look amazing with breton stripes, gingham or animal prints. The most important rule you need to follow is that the 2 prints must share at least one color in common. Another way to do it is to pair the same print in 2 different colors or in different sizes.
