fun with polka dots

This summer it will be difficult to walk in to any store and not find Polka dots or spots. The Louis Vuitton & Yayoi Kusama collaboration has taken polka dots to a level never seen before and inspires a bold approach to spots that most people are afraid of taking.

I think that the incorporation of Polka dots livens an outfit. I have had this black polka dotted dress from Urban Outfitters for nearly 4 years now, and surprisingly was able to wear it almost 3/4 springs since.

The outfit doesn't need to yell polka dots like the Vuitton & Kusama collection (although pretty amazing), but because I usually wear it as a skirt as opposed to as a dress, I feel that it gives the outfit a nice touch instead of being overwhelming or "look over here!" That is, if you are afraid of the loudness of polka dots!

Collared shit- Forever 21
Metallic sweater- H & M
Polka dot dress- Urban Outfitters
Grey socks- Calvin Klein
Boots- Aldo
Silver Necklace- The Bay
Black Necklace - Self made, with retro ring

That is what I love most about this dress from Urban Outfitters, its easy to layer and pair with other pieces. So thats why, with the dress being black and white and the sweater being metallic, it allowed for the maroon collar to pop. The polka dots also allowed for me to approach my outfit in a lighter mood. I played around with the jewellery, layering two necklaces.

So, although I didn't go all out on the polka dots, the inclusion of the dress definitely set the tone of my outfit, allowing me to play around with my outfit!
