Steal this look- Going casual with the polka dot trend

Kelly H asks: I've seen a lot of polka dots on the runways and in magazines. What's a chic way to wear this trend in real life without being too over the top?

W: I recently wrote about polka dot tights for fall and the polka dot trend in magazines and on the runway. The tights are a great way to try out this trend without investing too much. They're fun, light and whimsical and you can pair them with anything from dresses to skirts and trenches. Since dots come in different sizes, I would suggest going with smaller dots to start out. The dress below is a $15 find at Walmart (My theory is that you never know where you'll find a hidden gem). I love the one shoulder look because it allows you to show off just the right amount of skin and the layers and frills of the dress add to the fun and flirty feel that come with the polka dot print. I added a pop of color with a yellow bag and kept my shoes neutral so as not to take away from the print. Hope this helps!
