Spring Trend: Polka Dots and Stripes

Mixing Two Classic Prints Together

I like both polka dots and stripes, so why wouldn’t I like them together? Even if you’re not a fan of either print, I think the combination is hip, fun and perfect for spring.

You have a lot of options with how you mix and match. You can go striped shirt, polka dot bottom or vice-versa. Or, you can have both polka dots and stripes within the same piece of clothing. What makes it fun is the combination, so choose one that suits your style.

I recommend sticking to one general color scheme. Since you have two significantly different prints, I wouldn’t go too crazy with a ton of colors or it might look like you just threw something on as you ran out the door. You want your outfit to look like an outfit not just random pieces you put on.

Black and white is classic and can always work with a third complementary color. Also, you don’t have to do polka dots and stripes throughout the whole look. I like the idea of a pattern mixed top and a solid bottom. The options are endless and the look is classic, so have fun putting a new spin on a timeless trend.

@Phantomime I'm glad! Yeah, it's one of those trends that you aren't sure would work but then sometimes (in certain ways) they do! This comment has been removed.
