Trending // polka dots

Hey Babes!

 

After doing a little bit of research, I found that polka dots are going to be a major trend in 2020. Polka dots are a pretty classic print that has always been around, but they weren’t always a major trend. A few years ago, I wouldn’t have worn any polka dotted piece I owned because it just wasn’t in style. Ironically, I can say I felt the same way about leopard print. It’s always been there, but there was a point in time where you would see it around, but not EVERYWHERE like you did in 2019.

Polka dots are really similar in the way that you’ll see a garment  with them every once in a while, but it’s been awhile since you’ve seen them on every mannequin in the store. I bet in a few months though, you will be.

To get ahead of the game, I got some polka dotted pieces from Victoria’s Secret during their Semi-Annual Sale. The first one I’m going to show you Babes are some black sheer polka dotted pants. I love these pants because the polka dots on them are a soft velvet,  and they really make a statement. Technically, they are pajama pants, but if you do it right you can pull them off as a day outfit. They look great with a black crop top from Delia’s, and a black baseball cap. Since the pants are sheer, I had to wear a pair of black shorts under them. Almost any pair of black shorts will do, or, if you don’t like the sheer look, you could even wear a pair of yoga pants under them instead. Another idea is to wear a pair of colored leggings such as red or yellow, so that you have a pop of color shine through.

The other polka dotted piece I found during VS’s Semi-Annual Sale is this black tank top, which is also a pajama, but can be made casual in the right scenario. The polka dot details on this piece are a little more subtle, but it looks great with my black shorts I got in Thomasville, Georgia a little while ago.

Usually, I would never mix patterns, but for an edgier look, I threw a striped cardigan from Charming Charlie over the polka dotted tank top. Since the dots aren’t loud, the stripes don’t look obnoxious against them, and I actually really liked the way this turned out.

So Babes, how do you feel about these looks? Are you brave enough to sport pajamas in public? Let me know!
