I’ve never met a polka dot print I didn’t like. In all honesty, I’ve had half of these items saved to various wishlists since they first arrived on their respective e-commerce sites and I thought it was finally time I stopped keeping the good pieces all to myself.
If you’ve never worked this spotty print into your wardrobe, this spring is the time to give it a try. It’s a fresh way to add a dash of fun without being too wild or over the top – unless you want to be, of course. For me personally, polka dots are a seasonless print and always better in some combination of black, white, or red. It’s also the perfect gateway print, especially if you want to dip your toe into print-mixing waters. It looks great with stripes as well as florals, and once you become comfortable with interchanging those three, the sky is the limit.
I’ve narrowed down my favorite polka dotted pieces to these six – seriously, it was difficult – that vary from casual to romantic and every dot in between.
1Lane Bryant Sleeveless Polka Dot Jumpsuit
This jumpsuit combines three of my favorite things: one & done dressing, polka dots, and pattern mixing. The contrasting striped belt is such a modern, inspired touch that makes mixing two basic patterns extremely easy.
