Ready Made Outfit: Grown Up Polka Dots

Sophisticated Polka Dots
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.


Polka dots aren’t just for girls.  But how do you wear these dots without feeling overly girly?  Pair them with  grown up, sophisticated garments - or add distressed item or two for a rugged look.  Or both.  Here’s how to wear Grown Up polka dots:

1.  Start with a polka dotted shirt.  If you’re unsure about polka dots, try a small dot print in a dark color.  But you can also go bold with brightly colored dots–and an abstract pattern, as shown.
2.  Slip on a pair of super dark straight leg jeans.
3.  Add a lightweight utility jacket to add a rugged element to the outfit.
4.  Mix things up with your accessories: a distressed ankle boot contrasts with a traditional leather bag, while an orange striped scarf echoes the bright orange dots on the shirt.
