How to wear polka dot outfits

Start your new year fresh with a timeless print! Read this post to learn how to wear polka dot outfits!
We hope you had a wonderful end of year and we welcome you to start a new year with a new perspective on sustainable fashion. You've probably heard about the term "capsule wardrobe" and if you haven't, a capsule wardrobe is a synonym of a "minimalist wardrobe" or in other words a wardrobe that is small and has selected items that don't go out of fashion. 
So why are we saying all of this? Because starting a new year is a great time to declutter your house and do a closet clean-out to truly appreciate the garments you have in your closet and come to an overall conclusion that should answer:
  • Am I wearing everything that is in my closet?
  • Do I like all my clothes, and do they give me a positive feeling?
  • Are my garments versatile and wearable in multiple ways?

If the answer to some of these questions is no, then you might want to look into thinking more about your purchases in order to create a wardrobe that you will wear more often and feel beautiful and stylish with every single item.

An example of a basic item you can add is a polka dot sweater!

What are timeless prints?

Timeless prints are patterns that never go out of fashion. You can look up minimalist fashion and the striped tee shirt or polka dots will come right up as a signature and timeless style because no matter how many trends come and go, polka dots will always be a basic staple in fashion. Polka dots are classic, elegant and basic. 

Check out our tips on how to style this print with your looks.

Idea 1: Wear polka dots with a bold and vivid color for an edgy style


Idea 2: Wear polka dots with plain jeans and neutral colored shoes for a casual effortless style
Idea 3: Wear polka dots with a blazer or coat for a formal "go to work look"
Idea 4: Pop color to your outfit by adding vivid outerwear
