Taking inspiration from the 1950s is always a fantastic option for summertime. If you're like me and adore the '50s, polka-dots are the way to go! Think flared polka-dot dresses and bandeau-style swimsuits and then modernize it a bit like this Fashionista did. Her blue and white polka-dot dress has a fitted bodice with a skirt that flares out in an A-line shape. This simple shape is wearable for the daytime and can be dressed up at night when it's time to kick on some heels. There are so many delightfully dotted options out there to chose from! Besides a summery dress like this Fashionista's, consider some polka-dot swing shorts or a dotted bustier that will have you rocking vintage in the best way. Also, try a purple polka-dot bandeau bikini that is a little more up to date than the dated '50s style swimsuit.

What about your shoes? Everyone loves Chuck Taylors, but these plaid kicks will add a bit more originality to the classic sneaker. The pink and white plaid is understated enough that it combines well with this Fashionista's polka-dot dress. If you're feeling more low key, Keds are a simple option, especially in white.

Stay away from dark colors when it's 80 degrees or hotter outside to avoid the sun absorbing and making you even warmer. Pair your pastel dress with a white sweater when you're in the sunlight so you won't get sunburnt! To add some contrast to your look, pick a dark bag such as this of the moment one. 

When it comes to polka-dots and summer style, have fun and make it your own!
