This week’s style edition puts a modern twist on a classic print! Continue reading to see how I styled this off-the-shoulder polka dot blouse.
The feminine polka dot print has been around for decades, and became increasingly popular by fashion icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Kate Moss, the ever stylish and beautiful Princess Diana, and more recently Kate Middleton as a nod to her late mother-in-law.
When we take a look at the runways and street style during fashion week, there is no question that polka dots are BACK! So now it’s time to find pieces that best suit you, in a sophisticated (non-Mini-Mouse type of way)
With it’s bold, fun and feminine undertones, polka dots are a sure way to have your style stand out and get noticed.
The modern twist on this classic print is the popular off-the-shoulder trend. We’ve seen this trend develop over the last few years, and judging from the Spring/Summer 2018 styles, it’s here to stay for at least another season, if not longer.
The key to styling such a loud print is to keep accessories minimal, and pair it with something solid if you’re not up to mixing prints. I’ve styled smaller polka dots with floral prints before and I loved it! It’s all about colours, size of the print, and even texture. You’ll find out what works and what doesn’t for your personal style!
The billowing sleeves add a touch of elegance and flair. Statement sleeves are another trend you totally need to get behind this season.
I love how fun and flirty the pairing of off-the-shoulder and a bold polka dot print is!
This top is the perfect transition into Spring, and is light-weight to bring into summer with a pair of jean shorts or a skirt.
You too can rock the dot!
