Polk dots are a classic pattern that can be worn a variety of ways. This week, Fashionista Kristine has worked them into a picture-perfect outfit for summer. The proportions of this look are great: balance a slim tank with a longer, more modest skirt – just because it’s hot out doesn’t mean a mini is mandatory!
Match your favorite spotted shorts or skirt with a solid tank in the color of your choice. Prints can be mixed, but pick wisely – the best bet is a subdued pattern in a coordinating shade.
Finish your look with three key pieces: a statement pendant, woven belt and neutral sandals. Jewelry should be fun but not too heavy. Try a nature-inspired necklace or layered chains that add some interest to your outfit. A thin, braided belt should stay in the same color family as your shoes and bag – start with different shades of taupe and brown for pieces that are easy to mix, and don’t be afraid of beads. These small accents can step your look up a lot.
Hint: Fashionistos can rock these dots too, like with this spotted cardigan from BDG. The monochrome color scheme is so stylish everyone will want to pick one up. Get them while they’re hot – and don’t be surprised when this cool cardi becomes your favorite Fashionista’s go-to ‘boyfriend’ sweater.
