Trend Alert: Polka Dots

One trend I’ve been seeing everywhere lately is… polka dots!

Bloggers and trend setters around the globe are talking polka dots this year – from LA fashion blogger, Brittany Xavier of Thrifts and Threads, to German fashion blogger, Monika of Mon Mode, to the hugely popular Aimee Song of Song of Style…. and everyone in between.

So, after lots of Pinterest pinning in my “Style Inspiration” board… I decided it was time for me to give this trend a try.

I MUST ADMIT, AT FIRST, I WAS THINKING TO MYSELF… “NEVER WOULD I WEAR POLKA DOTS.

 



It just typically isn’t “my thing” to wear prints at all, let alone colorful ones. But after I kept seeing different ways of styling polka dots on social media and Pinterest, I was inspired and decided to give this brick orange and cream polka dot dress a go. I’m happy to now say, I like polka dots (every now and then)!

My consensus: I like the polka dot trend, but would still probably opt for simpler pieces like my below black and white picks. I love the Polka Dot Shorts below – I’d wear them with a this black silk and lace tank I have and a pair heeled mules like these – obsessed.

 

HERE ARE MY TOP POLKA DOT PICKS TO SHOP (ALL UNDER $100 AND MOST UNDER $30)!

 

01. Forever 21 Polka Dot Maxi Dress

02. Topshop Polka Dot Midi Dress

03. Boohoo Polka Dot Tie Skirt

04. Topshop Polka Dot Shorts

05. ASOS Rokoko Tie Bandeau Two-piece
