Even though polka dots are a classic and somewhat retro print, they come back every spring and summer season as the latest trend. Polka dots are bold enough to wear on their own and that’s usually how people wear them. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, here’s a new way to wear the polka dot trend…pair it with a bold color!

I love pairing this polka dot top with a hot pink skirt. It’s a little unexpected (the go-to color is usually red) and it’s very bold! The look is even more retro with the white sunglasses which I love. Nude heels are a safe bet with this outfit to anchor it a bit.

Even if you don’t have the same pieces that I have, the principle stays the same. Stand out and pair your polka dots with a bold color! Here’s another look I did by pairing a polka dot dress with red sneakers:

Definitely a bold look, but it’s too fun not to try.
