Polka Dot Fashion: Spring's Best Bets

Last night I passed White House Black Market's window display and I couldn’t resist stopping to admire their fun display of polka dot fashion! Their array included polka dots of all different colors and sizes and it was spectacular! Their fun and fifties inspired clothing made it all worth admiring. With thin belts and ruffles, this display was this week’s inspiration.

I felt obligated to feature a shirt from the store that inspired this article. This feminine and versatile shirt is perfect for work. Wear it with slacks or your knee length skirt to give it a professional and sleek look. I really like the high scoop neck and the pink sash. The pink sash is wide enough to top off this otherwise conservative shirt and it works as a bright accent piece to go along with spring colors. Be bold and wear some pink stilettos to sexy this shirt up even more.

Next up is a lovely dress that I have to purchase. I already know exactly what I would pair it with to make a perfect outfit. This solid black dress reminds me of my favorite yellow Karta dress. Dresses like this are a staple for any closet. This playful overlay of polka dots with black lining pairs well with huge pearls that are short or with long layers of pearls. Feel free to add some funky, chunky pieces with this dress whether you want to look refined or play up the playfulness of this dress. Take advantage of the solid black coloring of this dress and add your own fun!
