Polka dots—yes, the ones you used to wear as a child—are having a huge moment. Splashed across accessories and ready-to-wear throughout the latest collections, the darling pattern is the trend to tackle. While stripes and moody florals are crowd-pleasers during winter, polka dots are also surprisingly versatile and lend a welcome dose of whimsy to heavy cold-weather layers. Ahead, we show you three spot-on ways to nail the print.
How To Wear Polka Dots
One of the most popular silhouettes is the feminine high-neck blouse decorated with romantic ruffles and voluminous sleeves. Streamline the look by teaming with high-waist straight-leg denim trousers and sharp pointed-toe kitten heels. Complete with dangly earrings a cross-body bag adorned with gold hardware.
