Polka dot is such a timeless & dynamic print. Different scales and colors can give it different vibes: Small ones are more feminine and flirty whereas big ones are more modern and dramatic; Neutral ones are classic and easy-going whereas colored ones are more fun and youthful.

Pairing it with different pieces can bring out different sides of polka dots. As you can see from today’s featured looks above: A flirty frill skirt and cute Mary Jane heels enhanced the romantic and feminine side of Olivia Palermo’s small polka dot print shirt; A wide chunky waist belt, sleek black trousers and edgy leather pumps showed off the modern, powerful side of Taylor Tomasi Hill’s big polka dot shirt.

Two more tips we can learn from these two icons: When mixing prints, vary scales if they share the same color palette, vice versa; If your top and bottom both have volume, use a belt to cinch the waist.

像条纹一样,圆点也是不退流行的经典图案。不同的大小和色彩会赋予圆点不同的风格:小巧的圆点俏皮可爱,大的圆点则更抢眼、摩登;黑白灰等中性色的圆点经典又百搭,多彩尤其是霓虹色的圆点则更年轻充满趣味。

配搭不同的单品也能带出圆点的不同面,就像今天所展示的两个街拍偶像所搭配的一样:柔美的鱼尾裙可爱的玛丽珍鞋Olivia Palermo的小圆点衬衫更具女人味;利落的直桶西装裤尖头包鞋宽版腰带则更凸显Taylor Tomasi Hill身上的大圆点衬衫的现代与时尚感。

搭配两个相同色系的圆点单品时,混搭大小不一样的更有层次感。另外,如果我们的上衣和下装均不是修身款式,则最好选用高腰款式,并利用腰带强调腰线。

Compared to the bold red clothing pieces we shared in my last entry, shoes are one of the easiest ways to incorporate this classic, eye-catching color without being overwhelmed:

You can make the red shoe as a centerpiece by teaming it with understated neutral items, like the crisp white shirt and grey pencil skirt in first look above; You can emphasize it by wearing another red piece, like the red jumper on Jessie J (above middle); Or you can play with colors by adding analogous colors (like Taylor Tomasi Hill’s purple floral blouse, above right), or adding complementary colors (like green). 

As always, details make a big difference: for the first outfit, the blue printed scarf and leopard sunglasses really spice up the look. I like to take one step further by adding this modern diamond colorblocked skirt by Ann Taylor. This look is great for any age.

For the second outfit, compared to a regular skinny jeans, a two-tone tuxedo version nails this season’s hottest trend while a school-girl vibe satchel adding ease to the look. Change the bag to a more sleek, structured version, I can see this outfit on women over 40.

The third outfit is all about colors, from the printed blouse to the colorblock pumps. Use neutral pieces to cool the loudness. Another ageless look that’s great to embrace the coming spring!
