Polka dots have never really gone out of style, but they are having a major moment this year. The dot print is appropriate for almost any occasion and is so much fun to wear. There’s something classic and very feminine about this trend. As Marc Jabos said:
‘There is never a wrong time for a polka dot.’
But: carefully chose the right accessories. You don’t want to look too childish and cute.
I love the retro appeal associated with polka dots. Vintage vibes meet Parisian chic. Polka dot pieces are always a statement and perfect for a fashion forward look.
How to add playful polka dots into your everyday outfit without looking like Minnie Mouse herself?
First of all, I’m not a huge fan of mixing prints, I like to keep it simple. I decided to go for this pretty H&M blouse in black and white. The small stand up collar makes it upscale and cool, the cute little ruffles on the shoulders underline the feminine touch of it. The blouse is a nice eye-catcher and already a focal point on its own. Plain, high waisted jeans are the easiest way to tone down the whole look. I love these blue CLOSED jeans . They are timeless, yet super fashionable.
I finished the look with some edgy and heavy boots and a leather baker boy hat to toughen up the feminine print. I’m totally feeling the French vibes here and would love to stroll through Paris and have a coffee in one of these cute little cafes. I just love minimal and French inspired looks.
You can never go wrong with some delicate silver jewelry, a timeless black belt and a Saint Laurent bag.
Paris, I’m ready for you!
