Are Polka Dots In?
I love polka dots, they are super cute and vibrant: a timeless print that never goes out of style. I'm sure that you love them too since you are reading this post. To answer your question: Yes!, polka dots are trending again: polka dots dresses, polka dots blouses, polka dress shirts, polka dress skirts, polka dress pants. It looks that is everywhere, even in unexpected places: polka dress nails, polka dots bikinis, polka dots wallpaper.
Actually this year's unexpected viral fashion, as the Guardian called it, was a Zara's polka dots maxi dress.
This beautiful dress was suitable for all weathers and sizes, comfy in day and night and simply unavoidable. Not to ruin the surprise, but we suggest an outfit with this dress since we are also in love with this piece of garment. In fact, most of the pieces displayed here are inspired in the style that Zara has set (since I we are huge Zara’s groupies), so stop resisting, and give into this new wave.
Outfit idea #1. Olive Green Zara's Polka Dots Maxi Dress.
Although olive green can seem intimidating, it can also take an ordinary outfit and make it turn heads on the street. Even to the point where people come up to you and compliment your look!
It can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion and can be bold or classic, making it a great color option for any piece of clothing.
Try combining this fresh piece with sneakers to create the perfect spring-summer outfit. The final touch: some beautiful tortoiseshell earrings also in olive green from Statement Aura (shop here).
Outfit idea #2 Red Off-the-shoulder top with Polka Dots print.
When you’re in need of a dose of feminine fashion in your everyday wardrobe, look to the casual off-shoulder top as your solution. The unique neckline of this style cuts across the chest and upper arms to create bare shoulders. This flash of skin elongates the neck and creates a look that is both flirty and fun. For a hot summer day combine them with a white short that matches the white polka dots. Add a Pull-and-Bear Sandals and finally: triangular statement earrings in red tones from Statement Aura (shop here)
Outfit idea #3. Blue Polka Dots Maxi Skirt.
A maxi skirt is a timeless garment that always looks chic. The style is especially ideal for achieving a gorgeous bohemian appearance. To create this look, opt for a flowing maxi with a polka dots print. Once you have your skirt, partner it with cute and comfortable items, such a tied bowknot crop blouse from Zara in a neutral color with matching strappy leather heel sandals. Give a stylish touch with crystal-like statement earrings from Statement Aura (shop here).
Outfit Idea #4. White Zara's Polka Dots Maxi Dress.
The time has come, the dress is here! Yep! Your guess is right, the white Zara dress that is trending is here.
It is said that the dress is very good friends with leather jackets, red lipstick, Birkenstocks, Veja trainers, totes and cross-body shoulder bags. It does not have time for the performance of modern femininity – an embarrassment of Lycra, neon and scratchy lace. It can be worn when the weather is intolerably warm and your day stretches ahead of you – work, drinks, dinner – and it won’t chafe or itch. The dress is on your side. Wear it with a black leather shopper bag, and with sandals or sneakers, since the point of the outfit is feeling comfy. Finally, some squared textured statement earrings to add some sparkle to the outfit and of course: red lipstick.
Outfit Idea #5. Green Polka Dots Tight Dress with Zara's jean Jacket
If the previous outfit was perhaps too loose for you, you can go the opposite side: a tight polka dots dress. Tight dresses cling to the body highlighting the natural, beautiful feminine figure. Match it with a Zara's jean Jacket for a more casual look and sneakers. Hoop earrings from Statement Aura will look perfect with this outfit (shop here)
Outfit Idea #6. Zara's Green Polka Dots Skirt with T-shirt
If we were to wear one pairing all summer, it would be skirts and T-shirts. Not only does the pairing provide the right amount of comfort and cool, but when styled accordingly, it’s a combo that can easily work for business meetings, music festivals, or weekend errands. A pairing featuring polka dots and a graphic tee can do no wrong. Add this fun statement earrings from Statement Aura (shop here) that goes perfect with this style
Outfit Idea #7. Green Polka Dress with Zara's Leather Jacket and Cow Boy Boots.
So you have that feeling again that summer is slipping away. There is a trick to hold onto your summer dresses for as long as possible. Team gorgeous cotton dresses and silky slips with a pair of Cow Boy boots. Match them with a leather jacket and a matching purse. A pair of black statement earrings go perfect this outfit and will allow you to hang onto your summer wardrobe for another month at least.
Outfit Idea #8. Navy Blue Polka Dots Dress with Mustard Yellow Purse and Sandals from Zara.
Navy blue is a color that matches almost every other color but is just not as obvious as black. That is why I consider it being part of the neutral team. It especially matches the mustard yellow because blue is on the opposite side of the color wheel and because the navy shade is much darker than the yellow shade. I completed the look with some matching strappy leather heel sandal, a hint of shiny raspberry on the nails and lips and some golden earrings to enlighten the face. Et voilà!
Outfit Idea #9. Red Polka Dots Culotte with Zara's hat.
Culottes, gauchos, palazzo pants: Spring and summer are all about these loose, cropped trousers. Styling them can be tricky, though—but no fear, because we've got your back. Here is a suggestion of you can create a fresh outfit with the help of this tortoiseshell earrings (shop here).
Outfit Idea #10. White Off-the-shoulder Polka Dots Top with Jeans and Sneakers.
If you want to wear a white off-the-shoulder polka dots top choose a style that is gathered with elastic at the neckline and that flows out over the bust. This relaxed style will provide a ruffled look that is perfect for daytime casual. Just remember to opt for a cropped version to avoid looking swamped in fabric. Pair with jeans, sneakers and rounded textured statement earrings for a relaxed summery vibe.
Outfit Idea #11 Polka Dots Bustier Top with Zara's Jeans and Cowboy Boots
Try teaming a polka dot bustier top with light blue jeans to put together a day-to-day ensemble that's full of style and personality. Put an elegant spin on this look by finishing with a pair of black cowboy boots, a black belt, and heart-shaped statement earrings. This outfit is perfect for a concert or a night out.
Outfit Idea #12 Zara's Black Strappy Dress with Polka Heels and Pearls.
If you're wondering how to dress up a black dress or what to wear with, here is a beautiful combination. This simple Zara's strappy design is a good demonstration of “less is more”. It is a plain shift dress with a little twist: Polka Heels. And this time, the little twist really takes the outfit to another level. The final touch a pair of big pearls that match the polka dots printing. You will find this combination delightful.
