SHOP THE LOOK
Well ladies & gents.. we have some rather #oldschool trends coming back to stay this year in the fashion world and you should be ready to jump on board. As seen on so many runways, polk dots and typically monochrome black & white.
I love seeing trends recycled but with a modern flare, it lets you relive decades of your life. One trend that seems like it’s going to stick for far longer than the spring and summer is.. drumroll please… THE FANNY PACK! No, I’m not joking. Look on Gucci’s website, on Balenciaga’s. There they are. In all their 1990’s glory. The accessory every mom and dad had to go with their Umbro wind suit 😂. I don’t think I can make myself jump on this trend. But I always say.. never say never! But really… y’all want me to style one? Drop me a comment if so!
Back to the Polka Dots. I will say that you do need to be careful with this pattern if you plan to wear it professionally. Keep the spots small so they are too “loud” and take away from you and your work that day. If you want a more playful style, add a pop of red or pink with it to really make a statement. You can also downplay the feminine aspect of the pattern by throwing on some distressed shorts or jeans. Maybe even a denim jacket.
All in all, Polka Dots can be worn at any age and for any occasion. I love this top I’m wearing since it’s lightweight and I can decide to wear it layered for the winter, or paired with some shorts for the spring! The bow detail adds just enough that it isn’t just a plain button up shirt. Here’s a few more options I’m loving in this new trend below…
Happy Friday! Hope you have a great weekend!
