Pair your polka pieces with accessories or clothing pieces of solid colors…
Tip: If your outfit is white with black dots or black with white dots, pair with bright, fun solid colors to give a bit of an edge to your outfit.
#Polka ‘n’ Polka
It is actually acceptable to mix two different polka dotted pieces ONLY IF:
– The two pieces are of the same color scheme (check my previous post here on how to combine colors).
– The dots are of different sizes
#Stripes ‘n’ Polka
When we think of stripes and polka dots, they don’t seem to go together in the mind…but in the actual sense, they are a very great combo
#Animal print ‘n’ Polka (Spots ‘n’ Spots)
Yea i know! Another odd combo…its difficult to picture this two prints together but they go quite well together. If you’re not the adventurous kind and not ready to go all out, you can start with baby steps; animal print accessories on polka dot…and maybe tiny polka dots on large animal print and vice versa to tone down the outfit a bit…
#Polka your Accessories
Accessorizing is the easiest way to incorporate polka dots into an outfit if you wanna keep the look clean and simple…pair your polka dotted accessories with solid colored outfits.

So there you have it guys! I hope you’ve gotten some inspiration and ideas from this post…
