Two best friends, a lazy saturday afternoon and a lot of time in hand. What to do? The one thing girls love to do the most, dressing up! Our favourite thing to do since childhood, Isn’t it?
But, don’t you all find it difficult, to select one perfect dress out of so many? Sitting in front of the cupboard, room all messed up. We tried out almost every piece but didn’t find a perfect one to set the mood. Until I saw this polka dotted shirt lying in one corner of her cupboard.
Polka dot has had an enduring love affair with fashion. It has been one of the trends that though not stealing the spotlight all the time, has ardently straggled in the background. It might go down one season but they are never going to go out of fashion. They are always fun and add on element of playfulness to a design.The pattern evokes a sense of nostalgia, instantly conjuring a flirty and retro imagery. You must have been dressed in polka dots as a child. And while there can be something wistfully nostalgic about wearing them now, it’s universal appeal and style quotient makes it one trend to watch out for.
One look at its timeline is proof enough – Be it year 1926, when for the first time Miss America was photographed in a polka dot swim suit 👙 to the year 1928, when Disney introduced Minnie-Mouse in a red polka dot dress and a matching bow 🎀 to today’s alluring and popular designs on runways and red carpet events. The pattern promises to add a playful element to your real life wardrobe with a grown-up guise.
It’s a style for all seasons, as it excludes the undeniably adolescent flair, and yet remains an incredibly timeless option for girls. These patterns can be audacious and vibrant or soft and ethereal in design. Polka dots are fashion must haves, for every girl. So, how do you wear the polka-dot without looking overly mawkish? 💁
I have paired this polka-dot shirt with a blue high waist denim and white shoes. (didn’t find any other option in the wardrobe) But, you can go for block heels or pumps for a better look. Though polka dots are not counted in formals, the design of this shirt makes it perfect to be worn for interviews. You can always give it a shot. (try this out with a pencil skirt and a pair of pumps) 👠👠
(TBH, she’s my maasi, though she looks much like my younger sister.) 🙊
Do tell me how you found this post and also lemme know if you have any suggestions or ideas. Until then stay perfect in your imperfections.
Much love. ❤
