1Piece2Ways: Polka Dot Blouse
Polka dots - yes, the ones you used to wear as a child - are having a huge moment this spring season. A return to overt femininity is exactly to my taste, fashion has now officially gone spotty! Polka dot is surprisingly a versatile print, it’s not just or Minnie or tea parties. No matter what your fashion taste is, there’s always a polka dot silhouette for every women, wether it’s chiffon dresses or sheer skirts, if styled right, you can make it a fashion statement that will turn lots of heads around. Let’s start with the classic blouse with exaggerated sleeves, a retro yet sophisticated statement piece. I love there’re so many different ways you can style this trend - here’re two polka dot ensembles I’ve put together. Are you a chic fashionista or retro minimalist?
Polka dots are whimsical and fun, they can also be mixed and matched with colorful pieces to offer a nice preview to Summer. To add in color but without overtaking the pattern, I decided to streamline the look with a simple red A-line denim skirt (my favorite silhouette) and a pair of black and white mule. To finish the look and for better color coordination, I also added a red beret for a touch a romanticism. A simple color palette such as red, white, and black can pull the whole look together and making it look polished and easy to pull off.
If the first look was a bit too bold for your taste, then let’s pick a softer tone that looks just as lovely and sweet. Another big trend for spring is the retro fabric corduroy making a major comeback! I never knew I’d be a big fan until I found this cute overall skirt in the washed out pink. Lots of our favorite high street brands are giving corduroy a major moment, you can easily find jackets or pants in this fabric from brands such as Topshop, Zara and Mango. For a minimal yet stylish spring outfit, you can pair the polka dot blouse with a corduroy overall. Keep the retro feel consistent by wearing a pair of white sneakers. Always a kid at heart!
