Hello and Happy Saturday!!
Hooray for a 3 day weekend!!😍
Let’s talk Polka dots!! I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say they disliked polka dots!
They’re universally flattering and a timeless classic in the fashion world!
Today I will be sharing with you different ways to style a classic polkadot skirt and maybe just maybe you’ll be inspired to step outside of your comfort zone!
Let’s jump right in!!
1. Option 1: Solids
One reason we all love the polkadot print is because we can pair them up with virtually any color!!
For a safe and easy look, try a solid colored blouse on top of your black and white polka dot skirt! Totally get your colored shirts from Ross they’re always so inexpensive and you can purchase a bunch for under $30!
Have fun with the endless color choices! Red,Cobalt,Hot Pink,Yellow Black etc…
On the “Fashion Risk Meter” this look is at a comfortable 1! Great for beginners and everyone really!
2. Option 2: Stripes
Now we’re starting to get a little more daring with some pattern mixing!
Stripes and Polkadots work well in this outfit because they both have something in common: the colors black and white.
When pattern mixing you want to find a unifying theme! Also make sure that the stripes are smaller print than the polkadots and you’re ready to go!
On the “Fashion Risk Meter” this one ranks a 5! Perfect for pattern mixing beginners to step out of their comfort zone a tad bit!
Now I know what you’re thinking
“Floral and polkadots?!? Did a 5 year old dress you?”
Haha I assure you that it can work when done properly!
What you need to remember that a polkadot skirt is considered as a “neutral”, thus allowing you to pair it up with something colorful and fun!
To avoid looking like you dressed yourself in the dark lol the floral print MUST be smaller size print than the polkadot or vice versa!
If you pair the patterns up with the same size print then you will achieve a non harmonious outfit that in all honesty looks a bit “off”. (I think you know what I mean 🙂
On the “Fashion Risk Meter” this one definitely is a solid 10!
Trust me It took me a while to get used to pattern mixing but remember to start small!
Do one pattern mixing at a time until you get comfortable with more!
Before you know you’ll be mixing all sorts of pattern and textures!
Well that wraps up today’s post!
