Black & White Polka Dots

To me, there’s nothing more classic than the duo of black and white and the pattern of polka dots. These two fashion staples came together on this pretty Oasap dress, so I just couldn’t resist. To me, it had a somewhat vintage feel to it that just begs to be worn with red lipstick, curls, and Mary Janes. While I don’t actually own a pair of Mary Janes, let’s just pretend.

The longer length is perfect for the office or other formal occasion, but the polka dots are still playful and young. It can easily be transitioned from summer to fall with a cardigan and colored tights, which I plan on replicating in a few months.

Do you have a soft spot for polka dots? What’s your favorite way to wear them?


  1. I’m not one to rock polka dots very often (I think I over did it when I was younger), but your dress is such a classic piece! And I am loving your hair…it looks so long and healthy!

  2. I do love polka dots but now that I think about it not too many pieces with them. I do have hte cutest bathing suit that everyone loves…white with black polka dots! you look beautiful

  3. I love polka dots! They are fun and classy at the same time. I recently had to retire a polka dot sleeveless blouse so I am on the hunt for another item.

  4. Polka dots are so timeless! 🙂 This would be the perfect dress for a 50s party with some pin curls too! But it’s definitely a classic piece that can be worn today too.

  5. Hey girl! Just found your blog through a comment you left on Amy’s blog (Fashion & Beauty Finds. Your dress is adorable! I just purchased a new navy blouse with large white dots and I look forward to styling it with a pair of white denim cut offs and gold sandals soon and then in the fall I’ll style it with a pair of dark jeans and my brown riding boots!

  6. You look so incredibly classy in this dress, specially with the red lip and pearl earrings! You’re right, b&w with polka dots is so classic 🙂

  7. Okay, the dress is perfect on you, but honestly. the red lips does it!! Love it on you. Not many people can pull off red, but it looks gorg on you!
