Seeing Spots: How to Wear Polka Dots
Posted by Fajr Muhammad on July 18, 2012 at 12:53 PM
Polka Dots have been around for ages and were popularized in the 80′s and 90s. Hit up any thrift store you’ll find numerous polka dot pieces. While this is a fun and kitschy print, polka dots are not always so easy to pull off. If you’re a person who shies away from prints, adding a smaller dotted print may liven up your wardrobe. If you’re already a polka dot addict, mixing up your use of polka dots will add more spunk to your style.
