One of this summer’s hottest prints is the timeless white and black polka-dot. The classic pattern has been recycled from season to season by designers such as Kate Spade. As actress Anna Kendrick once said, “You can’t have a bad day in polka-dots”. While the trend is picking up steam again this summer as it did in 2018, it can be challenging to determine just the right way to style the playful print. Bold spots may seem intimidating to pull off, so here are some takeaways and tips from celebrities who did it right.
Chic Spotted Skirt
Known for her dramatic personality and style to match, it’s no surprise that Kris Jenner was flashing a flirty polka-dot outfit. Her conservative yet approachable look consists of a black tie front top paired with a midi ruffle skirt. She is giving us major Diane Keaton vibes from her role in the movie “Because I Said So”.
Standout Dot Dress
The combination of ruffles and dots must have been on every designer’s mind this season, as it has been a fan favorite in dresses and skirts. Jessica Alba was seen stepping out in a white spotted dress by the brand Sleeper. A great printed midi dress is ideal for a day on the go to stay comfy and cute in the summer heat.
Mix and Match Prints
Selena Gomez, who was a huge advocate for dots last summer, shares another printed dress fit for a romantic trip to Italy. The reason why we love this pick so much is because of the unique mixture of florals and polka-dots. You can get her look for less here.
Perfect Printed Top
With celebrity engagements popping up seemingly everyday, we are definitely curious about the outfits for those perfect moments. Stassi Schroeder, from the show Vanderpump Rules, recently got asked the big question from her long-time boyfriend Beau Clark. The $100K ring was an jaw-dropping accessory to her cheerful Alice + Olivia Laina Polka-Dot Printed Top.
There’s no wrong way to style the spots up this summer. Adding a touch of polka-dots is an instant way to bring a whimsical spirit into your wardrobe.
