How to Add Playfulness to Your Style With Polka Dots

Polka dots can be trendy if you know how to style them just right. They add a lot of fun and playfulness to your style. If you wear polka dots, no matter how small, they would always stand out.

Just like other patterns, styling a polka dot piece can be tricky especially when you’re trying to figure out which outfits you can match your polka dots with.

However, whether you’re looking for ways to add some playfulness to your outfit or you simply want to know interesting ways you can incorporate the lively vibe polka dots give to your style, then I’ve got you covered. Here are easy ways you can work the playful polka dot in your wardrobe.


  1. Get outfits with polka dot detail

If you’re trying to test the waters with polka dots then this is a good starting point for you. Opting for outfits with polka dot detail help you ease into polka dots and still get to rock the playfulness they offer. The polka dot details can come in form of polka dots embroidered in the fabric or a dotted mesh.

A neutral top with polka dot details is every easy to style with a plain coloured skirt or trousers. You can match the neutral coloured polka dot top with bright coloured bottoms to add some contrast and fun.


  1. Accessories that give you a touch of polka dots

You may not be brave to wear polka dots from head to toe. But you can wear accessories that give a hint of polka dots. That’s enough to add some playfulness to your style.

Take for example a lovely pair of polka dot heels or ballerina flats. The presence of polka dots is not too overwhelming but it is conspicuous enough to stand out and add some fun to your style.

Another accessory you could add to introduce some polka dots to your outfit is a handbag with polka dots on it. This small addition could add some playfulness to your outfit. So you don’t necessarily have to wear polka dots, instead, just carry the handbag around. It’s fun and trendy as well.


  1. Mix and match your polka dots

Polka dots stand out on their own. And so when you mix them with simple pieces especially if they are in a single colour they make your outfit look fun. So whether you wear a bright coloured polka dot shirt and layer it over a pair of jeans or a pencil skirt, you’ll look amazing either way.


  1. Wear polka dots from head to toe

So far, we know that polka dots work great with other pieces, but do they look great on their own? Of course they do! And they deliver on all the fun and playfulness you want to achieve in your look.

A polka dot dress is a classic and it looks fun and chic at the same time. If this trend seems a little too much for you, then you can layer your polka dot maxi or midi dress with a blazer or create contrast with a nice chunky belt on your waist.

Hiking Gear for Women

Remember the saying – There is no bad weather, only bad clothing. Before you plan a hiking adventure, you need to ensure you have the right hiking gear for women. You don’t want to realise you have the wrong kind of footwear or jacket in the middle of the hike. That would ruin the whole experience. Best to go hiking prepared to ensure you have a great time. Or else the elements would ruin the day for you.

Here are some items from the Salomon collection you would need to go hiking. All the clothing and accessories would come in very handy for a hiking trip.

This Women’s Quest 4D 3 GTX Walking Boot – Graphite Beach Glass is a good hiking footwear. It is waterproof and breathable, which is great for the toughest trails. I am a huge fan of the design. It has protective toe and heel caps, and an ergonomic EVA footbed.

This hiking footwear would support your feet and keep you very comfortable all through your hike.
