Very often when choosing pieces for my wardrobe, I avoid patterns, especially stripes and polka dots, but every once in awhile I break my own rules. After all, rules are meant to be broken, particularly when it comes to fashion.
When I saw this skirt at the Kate Spade store a couple months ago, I knew I had to have it. One of the sales associates was wearing it and made it look so cute, and I knew I could put my own style twist on it.
I love how young it looks and makes me feel with the festive polka dots and its short length. Plus, I can dress it up or dress it down and pair it with many different things already in my closet, making it perfect year round.
Here, I paired it with a Burberry Brit top I just picked up at Nordstrom. It is my new favorite piece in my closet because it’s so classic, casual, and will go with just about anything. Plus, the tan in the plaid pattern picks up on the tan polka dots.
Even though I am wearing almost all black, I feel like this outfit is a really great way to transition into spring. Adding metallic sandals really picks up on that spring and even summer vibe, as do the sunglasses and pop of pink lipstick. Makeup can really refresh and change up a look.
So even if you think polka dots aren’t your thing, maybe you’ll find the perfect fun piece for you!
