Mixing Prints: Polka Dots

It’s a polka party on thestylishmd today!  I used to avoid polka dots like the plague because they reminded me of Minnie Mouse or something my grandmother would wear.  Recently, I decided to give them a chance.  I’m realizing you can create a classic look with polka dots without looking too kitchy.

I have been wanting to try my hand at mixing prints so starting with contrasting polka dot patterns was a good way to dip my toes in the water.  I found it to be a subtle way to style a mixed print look.

I love the peter pan collar on this blouse.  It gives it a vintage feel so I paired it with classic pearl jewelry.  I balanced all the patterns with neutral accessories.

What do you think? Have you attempted a mixed print look?  I’d love to see them so feel free to share!
