#2 Pair it with some Solid or Neutral Colors

Mixing polka dots with some bold colors in plain brings the best results. Some of the most appealing combos with polka dots are made in colors like red, green, pink and yellow. Dotted shirts pair best with a colored trousers, skirts or pants or vice versa. Remember, when you pair solid colors with polka dotted print, make sure the dotted print is in black and white style. Otherwise the look you will get will be a childish one. In our suggestion, black and white print goes best with these colors.


#3 With Something Leathery

Like polka dots, leather too is a timeless trend. Pairing the dotted print with anything made in leather gives a flattering look. Try the options like a leather skirt with a top with polka dots, leather pants or even a leather jacket would look great with a touch of playful polka dots.


#4 An All-White Look

Get an unconventional look with white pants or skirt paired with a white top with polka dots, or vice verse. An all-white look seems classy.


#5 Dress with a Cardigan

Pair your polka dotted dress (in any silhouette) with a cropped cardigan or jacket. It would give a balanced look overall.

#7 Bigger in Size Polka Dots

If you like a print with bigger dots, you must pair it with something plain. A minimal look is what we recommend. For example, if the skirt has big dots, the top must be plain and vice versa. The whole dress in bigger print may give an overkilling look.


#8 Polka Dotted Jeans

Let’s revive the trend of polka dotted jeans this season. To get a balanced yet stylish look, pair it with some plain and casual top.


#9 Mixing of Prints

When you combine a polka dotted print with some other print (floral, geometrical), it would give a playful and catchy look. This style is more suitable for teens and young girls. Both prints should not be of equal size. Just make sure that one of the prints is smaller than the other. For example, a small printed polka dot skirt would look cool with a comparatively larger print of horizontally lined skirt. Check out Plaid Fashion and Leopard Print Style.


#10 A Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits are quite trendy these days. Many times, girls hesitate in wearing a jumpsuit all made in a polka dot print. That dotted look from head to toe may seem scary to some. But actually, it’s not. Make sure the print is smaller and the dress is perfectly stitched. You are surely going to rock the show. To get rid of a monochromatic look, wear heels in some complementing shade. For example, red or pink would look great with a black and white dotted jumpsuit.


#11 Polka Dot Outwear
