So classic and timeless, Polka dots are the easiest way for us over 40 mamas to add print to our wardrobes!
I’ve shared a tutorial here on how to choose prints for your body type, however if you are new to prints and want to add one right away, then polka dots are the way to go. There’s almost no guesswork involved other than choosing the size and colour scheme. The size and colour scheme play a role in how bold you want to go with this print.
Here I’ve chosen this pleated maxi skirt from Nordstrom Rack that has a small cream dot against a pinkish/taupe base for a soft look that could be appropriate for the office, errands or an evening out. As well, this sophisticated combination, will ensure that your outfit feels elevated and youthful without looking juvenile.
Paired with pumps and a cream blouse from Aritzia, this skirt is appropriate for Business Casual settings. If the situation calls for it, throw on a blazer either in a solid or in a soft Glen Check plaid like this for a maximum Business Casual vibe to elevate your look for that next Zoom or in person meeting.
For a youthful, easy casual look, the same skirt can be dressed down with a staple white sneaker (yes, these are a staple at any age!) and a denim jacket.
Empowering women over 40 to feel condifent in their clothes while learning how to build a wardrobe with intention is my mission and this never trendy, always in style, Polka dot is the perfect choice if you want to introduce pattern into your wardrobe in confidence!
