Prints are a great way to stand out in the crowd. I’ve played with a variety of prints over the years. Mainly considering the season, what I am pairing the print with, and how it connects with the specific occasion. Last month, I shared how to style printed pants for any season, and now I want to share some easy ways of styling polka dots.

Polka dots come in all shapes and sizes. And each size and shape help to accentuate different aspects when it comes to personal style.
For me, I like to stick with smaller polka dots for bigger pieces of clothing such as this duster. The size of the polka dots in contrast with the larger size of the piece of clothing helps to create movement which is exactly what I am looking for in a duster of this size. For other pieces of clothing that are smaller, such as a bodysuit or a sweater, I would typically wear larger polka dots to make the body size seem smaller.
You’ll often find that piece of clothing with smaller polka dots have more of the dots closer together. And pieces with bigger polka dots are more spaced out. There is a purpose to that. And it is all about accentuating the shape of your own body and make it look especially good for the look that you are aiming for.
When I am shopping for polka dots, I try to make sure that I am not planning to combine those printed pieces with other printed pieces. You don’t want to create too busy of a look and you want to make sure that you are making the polka dot piece the central item of the look.
There are so many pieces out there that have printed styles that create unique look that will create a spectacular look throughout every season.
