Look Sweet and Pretty in a Retro-Modern Polka Dot Dress

Believe it or not, Katy Perry, Dita von Teese, and other pin-up style fashionistas aren’t the only ones who can pull off the polka dot trend. Dotty dresses are going casual and getting vamped up for fall, and no matter what modern details are added to keep them fresh and current — sheer panels, shoulder embellishments, cut-outs, etc — they still manage to maintain a vintage-inspired flair for that sweet throwback look. Not sure where to start without looking like a live-action Minnie Mouse? Try giving your sensible work look a retro-girly vibe with this belted-waist Joseph dress, which is conservative without verging on boring, or channel a modern Betty Draper (it’s hard not to watch Mad Men without being fashionably inspired!) with this “Flirting with Destiny” wrap dress from ModCloth. And for a sexier night out look that’s retro without looking too sweet, I love this polka dot body-con dress by Motel Polka, which has caged sleeve cut-outs to give the look an edgier feel despite its demure print!
