Polka dots are a timeless classic that I’m sure we all enjoy spotting among trends year after year. In 2019, the trend has resurged. This time, though, it’s shaking its retro vibe and embracing a modern flavor. We’re seeing polka dots on transparent pieces. We’re eying dots on statement sleeves. My favorite, though, are polka dot jumpsuits.
What I’m wearing:
I was immediately drawn to today’s featured jumpsuit because of its silhouette. It has a fitted smocked top and a wide leg bottom. I’m also smitten by the mixed dot pattern (see another cool way to mix dots here). It’s subtle, but the dot pattern on the top is smaller than that on the bottom. Love that detail!
Now, this jumpsuit comes with adjustable spaghetti straps (see the style AS IS here). When I saw it online, though, I could only envision wearing it strapless. So, I cut the straps off as soon I got it. Of course, if you like having the option of wearing it both ways, it’s possible to simply tuck the straps. I decided to commit.
The jumpsuit fits true to size. I’m wearing a size small. True story, I was so disappointed when I first tried it on because I thought it was a pull-on style, and it wouldn’t go past my hips. Silly me, though, it has a side zip, which makes it easy to get on and off without help.
To add to the modern vibe of this polka dot jumpsuit, I wore it with my Gucci belt bag. Can you believe the belt bag trend is still holding strong? I’m thrilled that it is because a belt bag makes outfits that much cooler with the added bonus of a hands-free experience. That’s a fashion win-win.
If you think polka dot jumpsuits are a great way to embrace the dot trend as well, check out all the cool styles at the end of this post.
