Pattern Play: Polka Dots





I've had a lifelong love-hate relationship (OK, more like hate) with polka dots. They look so cute and femme on others but when I've tried to work them into my wardrobe in the past they've always felt a bit too dainty. Well, times are a changing. I'm finally embracing polka dot prints and plan on playing the pattern into the fall. 

I'm taking inspiration from favorite street style looks to make polka dot prints feel more "me": think chiffon polka dot blouses paired with leather and creating outfits with an edge by mixing polka dot pieces with contrasting prints. At the very least I'd love to add a pair of Loeffler Randall's Natalie flats to my closet, and a Comme des Garcons wallet wouldn't hurt either;-)

  23. I personally don't wear much polka-dots but I think these outfits are pretty cute. My favorite has to be the leather shorts and long sleeve turquoise top.
