A pretty short post on polka dots

6

It’s short because polka dots are tricky—they can look so cutesy and costume-y—and I frankly didn’t find too many specimens that I loved. But I do think there is a trick to getting them right, and that is to look for pieces that have dots that are on the smaller side—go too big and suddenly you’re Minnie Mouse. This Ayr blouse gets it exactly right, though.

Madewell’s ever-versatile Central Shirt in a nice royal blue.

I like the caramel brown on this dress—it’s slightly unexpected and pretty sophisticated.

And the irregularly-shaped dots here are pretty cool.

A pretty silk skirt that drapes just right.

The patch pockets on this shirt endow it with a casual appeal.

Such a pretty color combination on this well-priced dress.

A fun and stylish sarong for the beach or pool or wherever.

    Love the AYR top! My fondness for polka dots is an homage to my grandma who loved polka dots and “Charlie” perfume. 😊

    Is UK 10 really a US 4 now?

    That Ayr top is sublime. To me, blue with white polka dots is so classic. And the dots on the Rag & Bone seem to move of their own volition, so cool.

    If those boots came in white (with the & Other Stories dress, dark blue w a slight bell sleeve) I might buy them. I have a hankering. I wonder who makes them? The link didn’t say. The dress is lovely too actually (for someone else).

      &OtherStories, since they sell boots. https://www.stories.com/en_usd/search.html?q=Sock+boots

        Thanks! Yes, I did look at their boots, and I was pretty impressed. I didn’t think I saw that exact pair though. I am often fond of a squared off toe, though based on what’s out there, I must be alone.
