Polka dots, when done the right way, are an infusion of happiness into your wardrobe, but also run the risk of looking juvenile (Minnie Mouse, anyone?). Here's how to make the look work for you:
- Polka dots are naturally feminine, so look for a shape that works with that. This dress has cap sleeves, a defined waist and a scooped neckline.
- Don't overdo it with ruffled or ornate accessories, because they can cross the line. That means no shoes with bows, headbands, or ruffled bags.
- Add a splash of color to give polka dots an edge. This dress would benefit from a slim yellow or red belt.
