Fashion can be taken too seriously sometimes. That’s when we have to reach into our arsenal and grab something fun – like polka dots. I must admit, at first, I was a bit skeptical of the polka dot trend, but when I learned how easy they were to wear, I couldn’t get enough of them. Polka dots are equivalent to bold stripes or moody florals. And with a bit of confidence and a fresh face, the polka dot trend will slowly but surely win you over too.

When I want to flex my fashion skills, I pull out polka dots. Here I went for black and white for something classic yet artsy, and paired it with graphic tee to keep it casual. How adorable is this outfit? Perfect for a daily stroll around town or a coffee rendezvous?

Polka Dots Ruffles

Ruffles have followed us through the seasons and they are sticking around for the fall. Polka dot ruffles can liven up your wardrobe very quickly – but be careful to pick your colors wisely so you exude haute couture vibes and not clown status. Polka dot ruffles with wide-leg or boyfriend jeans create a fall ensemble that you’ll want to repeat.

Let’s connect the dots.

Sheer Polka Dots

Just like sheer florals, sheer polka dots invite a romantic element to any wardrobe. It exposes just enough without being too over the top and that’s why I’m hooked on them. Find your favorite sheer polka dot dress or blouse just in time for fall. Black and white are my favorites because they can be given life with bright and bold accessories or any make-up look.

Knit Polka Dots

Knits are fall’s best friend. They go hand in hand. In order to keep your knits from falling into the boring category, pick a polka dot print. Whether you go for oversized or fitted knits, polka dots will bring life to them. Play with large and small polka dots to keep things fun and interesting. And add any other fall trend to the mix (see my post on vintage inspired pieces for fall), and you’ll get a super unique look.

The polka dot trend for this season is sure to keep us on our toes. I’m already loving what I’ve seen so far on the runway and in magazines. Don’t be surprised to see polka dots pop up on other pieces like shoes or handbags – or even earrings. The sky is the limit with polka dots. You’ll soon find yourself coveting them and taking the trend well into other seasons!
