Thanks to Nasty Gal, I’ve found a few of my favorite blouses that are spot on with the polka dot trend.
I’ve actually never been the biggest polka dot fan (aside from a pair of pink polka dot flats I loved when I was younger), but I must say that the trend is growing on me. Technically a classic, polka dots are youthful but ladylike – and in my opinion, an almost retro look in some ways. These blouses from Nasty Gal are some of my favorite ways to wear the trend – I’ll break down my favorite things about them below.
The Formerly Known As blouse by MinkPink ($98) is black, sheer, has a long/short hem, and of course has gorgeous velvety polka dots – it’s a very chic statement piece that looks good with a bright pant (as worn on the model), and in an all-black look to add a pop of texture.
The Opposites Attract blouse ($38) is definitely a non-traditional top to wear – the mixed stripe and polka dot pattern is a daring fashion risk, as so many people find mixing prints to be a no-no. I think this top is a winner just for the fact that it’s like nothing I’ve seen before.
Finally, the Dotted Crop Shirt ($48) is an adorable way to keep the long-gone summer in your grasp – the sleeveless style makes it perfect for layering under jackets – maybe a leather one with some seriously skinny black jeans? I think yes.
What do you think of the polka dot trend? How about these tops from Nasty Gal? Let me know in the comments section.
