Wearing Polka Dots 

Polka dots have been around for quite a while now and they always seem to be in trend.

Just like how a floral print can’t go out of style, the same is the case with this print.

When sporting polka dots, there are some things that you need to consider.


  • Don’t wear too many polka dots at the same time.

  • Go for some deconstructed silhouettes when wearing red, white or black polka dots so you don’t end up looking like Minnie Mouse.

  • You can totally match polka dots with another print;you just need to know how to pull it off with confidence. 

Since polka dots are always in trend,

fashion designers are constantly looking for fresh ways

to incorporate it in their pieces.

Polka dots come in all shapes and sizes and

that includes oversized dots, textured/raised dots,

irregular dots, metallic dots and colorful dots. 


Large Vs Small Polka Dots 


When it comes to polka dots, there are a lot of factors that play in whether or not they will make you look fat or slim.

Large dots are more widening as compared to smaller dots, but another factor that plays in here is the distance between each dot.

Effect of the distance also depends on the color. Light colored dots on a dark background will make you look wide when they are placed close together and the print is a bit dense.

However, darker dots on a light background look less widening when they are placed close together.

So, to sum it up, there are only 2 kinds of polka dots which will make you look slim:


  • Small dots on a dark background that

          are placed far from each other.

  • Diagonally organized dots on a dark background.
