Nobody was more surprised than me when late this summer I threw a pair of polka-dot jeans (similar, here) into my cart while shopping at Target. I’d seen the polka-dot trend popping up, and I have to say, typically, polka-dots just remind me of the early 1990s, and not in a good way.
But something about these jeans was piquing my curiosity. It probably didn’t hurt that they were marked down to $12.50. And that they were SUPER comfortable.
It’s always the right idea to spend as little as possible on the really trendy stuff, and since I actually liked these pants, they came home with me.
Now the question became, what in the world to wear with them?!
I’ve actually found quite a few ways to wear them, but today I’m showcasing the way that took me by surprise. I rocked the polka-dot-on-polka-dot look this week, courtesy of eShakti, who supplied the top, and I thought it was adorable!
The trick here, is to go with inverse pairings. I had very similar colors to start with, and then kept one set of dots light, with the other set dark. I think it totally worked!
Now let’s take a closer look at this top from eShakti, shall we?
It has a very flattering cut, and I think the tie at the front adds some interest. You could turn it into a big bow if you want to draw attention to that part of your body. For my body type, leaving it long to elongate my torso was the way to go. I also like the colors in the top (chambray is very in right now) and I’m finding that it can go casual or dressy quite easily. Those are my favorite types of pieces to have in my wardrobe!
eShakti merchandise moves REALLY quickly, so unfortunately, this top is already gone for the season. But I promise you, you will find absolutely no shortage of gorgeous dresses, tops, skirts and jackets there. And as if their fantasic fashions weren’t enough of a reason to shop there, here’s the real gem: eShakti offers customization of their clothes for a nominal fee (just $7.50 extra). I have a few custom pieces from eShakti in my wardrobe, and I always feel great in them because they fit me exactly like they should!
So I want to know…what do you think of the mix-and-match polka dot outfit? I’m not fishing for compliments, but I’m also not fishing for folks to tell me that I look like a moron, so keep the feedback constructive, please!
And would you ever try polka-dot jeans? Any ideas on how else to wear them? I’ve got a few of my own (other posts brewing in my mind….) but would love to hear your thoughts!
And finally, have you ever tried the awesomeness that is eShakti? I mean, seriously, I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU to go to their site and not find 15 things that make you swoon. Just sayin’.
