How to Wear Polka Dots

Retro trends are definitely making a comeback, first came the gingham trend but now it's all about Polka Dots! You might think of the black and white colour combination when you think of polka dots but I'm here to show you that there's lots more brighter, summery colours on the high street and also different sized dots! Meaning you can keep it subtle if you want or if you're really daring you could even wear head to toe polka dots or even mix them up with stripes!

 There is plenty of polka dot styles on the high street including trousers for a more tailored look, cute polka dot blouses that you can pair with denim, wrap style dresses for the office or shopping trips and also sophisticated skirts like mine! This huge summer trend, might even be a bit of competition for florals (if that's even possible) but I have managed to incorporate them too with todays cute summer look.


Today I'm styling the Fran Woven Polka Dot Pleated Midi Skirt from Boohoo (£20) which also comes in a navy colour, but as soon as I saw the yellow online it just shouted summer and the glorious yellow sunshine we have been having as of late in the UK. I think that with yellow being so bright you need to either pair it with white or black, I opted for the later with this H&M black smocked top with yellow flowers (£12.99). I think they matched perfectly and the top is super stretchy meaning I have room for all that summer ice cream!

I finished off my polka dot outfit with La Redoute black wedges and a woven cross body bag from George at Asda. I have been desperate to find a bag like this for ages but didn't want to spend a fortune and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this online at Asda for just £14!
