Polka dot dresses are fun and playful, creating a great template for adding accessories. When styling polka dots, make it the focal point of your outfit, so your accessories need to complement it rather than compete with it.
Black and white polka dots work with just about any color, so there’s plenty of options when you want to make a fashion statement.
Try wearing bold colored accessories with a neutral color dress. A polka dot dress in black, navy, white, beige, gray, or tan looks great with bright accessories. Wearing accessories in bright colors makes them stand out.
Narrow down the types of accessories you want to wear. This may depend on the size of the polka dots on the dress. For larger polka dots, stick to a couple large accessories. If the polka dots are smaller, stick to a couple smaller accessories and one large one.
If you’re not a fan of bold colors, you can still inject some personality into your black and white polka dot clothing by pairing them with softer shades. Pastels work really well with stark black and white dots and are often a little easier to wear than bright colors.
Finally, look for a body skimming cut that’s generous enough to let you move freely, for an easy breezy fashion vibe that feels effortlessly sophisticated.
