on a fashionable note: spot on

Polka dots– a pattern reminiscent of sunny days spent on the playground, the whimsicial jingle of the ice cream truck, and bows in your hair. This season, polka dots get a grown-up transformation. They’ve been spotted (pun intended) all over the runways in varying shades and sizes, and always looking chic. I’ve created a little guide on how to introduce this playful kiddy print into your adult wardrobe.

Polka dots take on a sophisticated personality when paired with a classic, ladylike silhouette, like this soft pastel dress from UStrendy.com. For more girly accents, slip on some fresh white ballet flats and lux pearl studs. Then, inject a little attitude with a neon belt, like this shockingly yellow one from Marc Jacobs.

For a put-together look, mix textures on top and bottom, and unite them with a single color scheme. To add contrast and that essential “notice me” factor, strap on bright wedges, a style that  screams spring. Then top it all off with a second bright element, like this yellow spiked statement necklace from Eddie Borgo.

If you’re the type who considers polka dots a little too tame and childish, take a look at this outfit, filled with punch and pizzazz. Start with a bright button down with a large dot pattern, then intensify the polka dots even further by adding a second dotted piece, like these adorable Paul & Joe shorts. Just make sure the prints are relatively the same size so you don’t look too crazy. Keeping with the fun playful theme, accessorize with pink, girly elements.
