Spring Trend: Polka Dots

Seeing spots? I love that vintage print is making a comeback this Spring. Polka dots are a great gateway print because, depending on the size of the dots, it can add a lot of fun into your wardrobe without too much drama. I’ve also been obsessed with the color navy for a long while now, and it doesn’t seem to be letting me go. So for this week’s Target Spring Style post, I curated some navy blue polka dotted pieces I’m coveting.

Let’s start with the Merona Women’s Anorak Jacket. I usually see anoraks in olive greens, but this navy dot version adds a little bit more femininity than the original. The smaller dot size blends together, making pairings with the jacket pretty easy.

I currently own an inverted version of the Merona Polka Dot Scarf and it still is one of my favorite scarves. It goes well with lighter colored clothing. The navy with white dots version has the same versatility and opens up a more wardrobe options — especially with darker colored clothing. It’s a great transitional piece.

She wore an itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini. Of course, the Xhilaration Junior’s Polka Dot 2-Piece Swimsuit is navy, but the point is the same. The beach or poolside is a great place to rock some polka dots. The spacing between the individual dots are pretty spaced out, making this print look more playful and girly.

Now for some print on print action. The best way to get away with wearing two pieces of clothing of the same print is to contrast the print sizes. This Merona Women’s Elastic Waistband Shirtdress does it effortlessly in one piece. It looks great by itself or with a belt to create the illusion of wearing separates. This dress is perfect for those who have trouble figuring out what to wear last minute or in the mornings. It’s an easy piece that can be styled for work or play.

What are your thoughts on polka dots?
