If you remember my first post about the polka dots trend, you may already know I’ve always been in love with this print. However, like I said in my previous post, this print can easily look juvenile on anyone. But, and fortunately for all the polka dots lovers out there, wearing such a print as a grown up isn’t impossible. For example, wearing polka dots with a pair of heels is one of those fail proof combo but this would be an obvious choice! You can also go for neutral/ natural colours such as a burnt red like on the photos above. It’s all about the right choice of accessories!
As the weather is around 37°c now in the south east of France, I opted for the “less is more” formula. The key when using a minimal amount of clothing and accessories is to go for the statement pieces. In this outfit the main one is obviously the dress. I matched this ruffle polka dot dress with a pair of classic slides from Zara. The colour of these sandals actually compliments really well the black polka dots print. I picked a new pair of earrings from Mango, they just make the chicest earrings! It’s also a nice golden touch that gives that grown up look. To finish the look, I picked my straw bag from Stella Forest, just for that southern French touch.
Ps: Sorry for the tired/ evil look, that’s the face I have when I’m hungry.
