The great advantage of polka dots is that you can wear them anywhere, from the most casual days to the formal occasions. This retro-inspired print is incredibly versatile that you could wear a polka dot tee with your jeans and sneakers, a polka dot white silk blouse with a pair of black pants for work, or a flowy polka dot dress for a summer wedding. You can dress them up with heels or down with sneakers.

The easiest way to combine polka dot outfits with solid colour bottoms or tops. If you wear black-white polka dot tops, you can pair them with black or white jeans, pants or skirts or vice versa. Try wearing a black-and-white polka dot shirt over cropped denim jeans and complete your look with high heels for a night out. You can create a casual look with a polka dot off-shoulder top, jeans, sandals, and sunglasses for day visits. To balance your polka dots, try something masculine on bottoms like worn boyfriend jeans in a looser fit with a cool-girl cuff and pumps.

Polka lots look great put together in red, black, and white outfit combinations. You can add red accessories, layers, coats and or shoes to your black and white polka dot outfits. You can always add bright, saturated colours to pop up your black and white polka dot outfit for a more cheerful but also sophisticated look. 

A polka dot midi or maxi dress requires little-to-no styling, you simply can't go wrong with black and white polka dots. A wrap-style dress looks good on everybody, especially when it's belted a bit high on the natural waist. You can embrace a more feminine look with pink or red polka dots ruffled dresses. Polka dot jumpsuits or rompers are also great for daytime street style, especially in a classic black and white pattern.

A black and white polka dot pencil or full skirt looks super chic for a day at the office when paired with a crisp white blouse and leather accessories. Keep the scale of the polka dots small when you’re wearing a print to work.

You can combine polka dots with different size polka dots or stripes, plaid, or florals.
Mixing patterns to create your own, unique fashion statement is very popular these days. Remember to remain in the same colour tones.
