Pretty in Polka Dots

When you think polka dots, you imagine Minnie Mouse, Betty Boop, Lucille Ball, and Gwen Stefani (in the "Don't Speak" video).  These ladies all have iconic style that is classy and fresh at the same time, and definitely makes them stand out from the crowd.  Now, the last time we put on a polka dot dress was in grade school, but we're ready for some excitement.  Here are some modern takes of the classic polka dot print:

This dress by Ralph Lauren is the epitome of the modern polka dot dress. The square neck and the flared skirt provide for a simple but well-proportioned fit, and is perfect for a night out on the town. Remember to accessorize with some red pumps, bold lipstick, and tons of attitude!

For a fun-filled day on the boardwalk, try out this multi-colored polka dot dress from Anthropologie. We love the A-line cut and the double spaghetti straps, and think it's a fun, flirty look for the summer. 

Solid skirts and tops can get a bit monotonous, so jazz up your office style with this polka dot sheath dress from Kohl's! The large black polka dots against the white dress give it a crisp and vibrant look, and we love the yellow belt, which adds a discrete pop of color to your ensemble! Throw on some pumps, grab your portfolio, and you're good to go!

Red and white polka dots aren't only for Mickey's number one squeeze.  This cute and flirty sundress available at Mod Cloth is great for a summer barbecue, and the lightweight cotton will keep you fresh and cool all day long.

For a sexier look, try this mesh overlay dress by Top Shop. The sheer lining gives this an edgy look, but the side pocket balances it out for a sexy but sweet outfit.

If you want to steer away from the classic black-and-white, try this sunshine yellow halter dress by Adrianna Papell. The lightweight fabrics makes this a great look for summer bridal showers and will compliment your golden summer tan!
