You Can Wear Polka Dots Even If It Isn't New Year's Eve

Even months after New Year’s Eve, polka dots are still one of the most covetable pieces for summer. This timeless classic has always been that one quirky piece in our closet that we can always wear when we need a pick-me-upper. It’s also reminiscent of classic 50’s pin-up looks and style icons like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. It’s playful and innocent without compromising femininity. This season, polka dots are more elegant and ladylike with ruffled dresses and flowy silhouettes that will give you a fresh look for your summer festivities ahead.

Still not convinced? Here are some style pegs and tips that will inspire you to get on board and boldly wear polka dots all summer long:

 

Tip 1: Pair it with pastels for a good pop of color
