Trending: Polka Dots

Never did I ever think polka dots would make a comeback, especially after my childhood days of rocking the pattern in honor of Minnie Mouse, but fashion will always surprise you!

No matter what the latest trend is, you have to learn to make it your own. While I welcomed the return of polka dots as a refreshing change, I also quickly recognized it as a more feminine pattern with many of the items in this pattern veering towards the ultra-girly side. However, if you've followed me for a while, you know "girly" is never the way to describe my style – I'm always drawn to edgier looks. But, that wasn't a reason to pass up on this trend, so I decided to transform it to suit my personal style.

To do this, I paired this polka dot dress, with all it's girly and frilly features, with a beat-up pair of black high-top Converse and a vintage Calvin Klein denim jacket. Not so girly now, right? I'm glad I didn't pass up on this dress, it seriously fits amazingly (but I suggest sizing up, it runs very short) and is so lightweight. It's from Missguided (shop here) and also comes in red and navy, so there's a color for everyone! I actually love the red as well and was struggling to choose between that and black but ultimately settled on the more subdued option. On top of it's great shape, fit and on-trend pattern, the dress is only $38 and Missguided is literally always having a 50% off sale, so I got this dress for only $19 – such a steal!

Okay, now that I'm officially obsessed with polka dots, I've linked a bunch of other options I'm loving at the bottom of this post. Even if you're nervous about pulling off this print, take the risk and make it your own – trust me, it's worth it.
