Fun With Polka Dots


Fun With Polka Dots


Mixing prints and patterns can be intimating. What works, so you don't look like a two-year old who dressed herself?

I've found that you can't go wrong if one of the patterns is either a stripe or a polka dot. I also found that keeping the same color combination works, as well.

My polka dot top has been living in my closet for at least eight years. I've pulled it out a few times and wore it with a solid black, but I never thought of mixing it with a pattern. Because I like to create, I decided to pair my polka dots with a print jacket.

And here's my outfit:

 
I chose white shorts and sandals and accented my black and white with a red purse. My statement necklace is an old lia sophia piece. It works great with so many outfits and the pendant is removable. 

The larger polka dots work with the jacket. Smaller polka dots would be lost in the jacket's large pattern. The purse adds a touch of color. I'm still looking for a great statement necklace in red to go with my black and white.

Because I'm wearing shorts, I chose flat sandals. I could have worn a wedge, but nothing any higher. I just don't care for any type of heels with shorts. 




If you're not quite ready to match patterns, try polka dots alone. They really are a nice addition to your wardrobe. Start slowly with, perhaps, a polka dot scarf or a polka dot clutch. Polka dots are everywhere, so enjoy the fun of searching for that special item. 

Have a wonderful day, and have fun creating :)
