Trends we heart: '60s-Inspired polka dots

All right, you caught us: We absolutely love the ’60s! From Bridget Bardot hairstyles, Twiggy-inspired makeup, lady-like shift dresses and, of course, polka dots, designers and celebs are in full ’60s swing this spring. You can be, too, with a few closet add-ons. Neat! 

 

Wardrobe staple

The cardigan is an essential for every girl’s closet. Switch up your regular solids and throw on some dots for a retro vibe that will take your look from bland to super sweet almost instantly.

Always a classic

What girl doesn’t love spinning around in circles wearing a bright polka dot dress in the middle of a wide-open field on a beautiful sunny day? You know we do. The look may seem a bit dated, but with the right accessories, (try a long chain necklace and some bangles) your I Love Lucy dress won’t feel so Susie Homemaker.

Bathing beauty

But, contrary to what you might think, retro bathing suits are back in, just ask stars like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift! The best part is, the silhouette is instantly slimming and is great for jumping waves in the ocean or diving contests at the pool. With all the extra support, this suit won’ t budge!

Dotty togs

This summer is all about the wedge, and what better way to stay on trend than with Tangerine Tango dotted heels? We promise that they’ll look great with just about any sundress you own. The polka dots and bow add a hint of chicness. Rock them at the season’s first pool party!

To make sure a fitted button down is the right size for you, check out the shoulder seams. If they hit right at the point where the slope of your shoulder begins, then you're good!
