Trend Alert: Polka Dot

If you're seeing spots everywhere, you're not imagining things. Polka dots are suddenly the hottest thing since jalapenos and much easier to appreciate. So how will you adopt this trend? Check out our favorite ideas...

Nails

Spotted on fingers and toes everywhere, polka-dotted nails are so cute and easy to do.

Accessories

What dresses up an ordinary outfit in a snap? The answer is as clear as black and white... a polka dotted scarf like this one from Forever 21. For $8.80, it's the easiest way we can think of to turn a t-shirt and jeans into a fashion statement!

Shoes

Polka dots on your toes are like the dot on your fashion exclamation point. Put another way, polka dotted sneakers make just about any outfit cute! Superga sneakers are hot (and comfortable) but at $80 from JCrew, they may set you back more than your average teen budget. Luckily you have other options...Madewell sells them for about $65 and Toms features polka dot shoes for under $50 and Converse go for under $40.

Jeans

Colored skinny jeans are big. Add spots and you have a fashion explosion. These jeans from PacSun go for under $50. Piperlime, Old Navy and Madewell have them, too in various price ranges.  

Tips for Wearing Polka Dots

When you love a trend, wear it! But don't go overboard. Too much of a good thing is still too much. Wearing a polka dot scarf? Then keep the polka dot jeans at home! Wearing a polka dot shirt? Top it with a denim jacket and definitely don't wear it with any other print. A few dots speak volumes, so one dotted item at a time is loud enough for most people!

I agree with sugarpetals I'm sorry to say but she is right.
