The polka dot print is a classic. It’s timeless and elegant and can be worn on women of all ages from young girls to mature women. Polka dots also suit all shapes and sizes.
If you don’t already have something in your wardrobe in a polka dot print, we recommend you get yourself something. Whether it’s a dress, blouse, pair of pants or a simple scarf the polka dot print will never date, and it will be an essential piece in your wardrobe.
Have fun with your polka dots! Polka dot prints come in many different colours. The classic prints of course are black and white and navy and white but who can ever forget the itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini? Trending right now are bright polka dots so don ‘t be afraid to explore polka dot prints with backgrounds of reds, oranges or pinks or teal green.
Choosing the right size of polka dot is also important. Stick to small polka dots if you are larger in size, especially if you are wearing them on your bottom half or if you are wearing on the top and have a large bust.
Remember when accessorising that your polka dot print is the feature so stick to solid colours for your handbag and shoes.
Polka dots can be worn for all occasions form casual to evening. Here is how we put together our favourite polka dot pieces for a casual and a dressy look.
