5 Under $50: Polka Dots


What is it about polka dots that makes us instantly giddy? Maybe it's because this timeless print can be sweet or sexy, proper or posh. And on a sheer blouse or sleeveless dress, polka dots feel ever-so-summery.

Here are five polka-dot pieces under $50 to pique your interest right now (click any image to shop)...

{Shown above (from left): Miranda Kerr, Jessica Alba (in Tory Burch) and Kate Upton all look pretty in polka dots.}


1. Kardashian Kollection for Sears polka dot blouse, $39.99 (down from $68)
I have a feeling Kourtney was responsible for adding this ladylike polka dot blouse into the Kardashian's line for Sears (if they really have any input at all). I'd wear it!




2. Shop Sosie dotted dress in tomato, $49
Polka dots sing on a fiery orange-red backdrop that's perfect for balmy weather.



3. Tommy Hilfiger polka dot skirt, $32.99 (down from $59.50)
This flouncy skirt looks like something Lucky staffers would rock at the office with a slouchy tee and boyfriend blazer.



4. Tramp polka dot shorts, $22.99
These cheeky shorts have a retro vibe. I envy the girl who can rock these at a summer BBQ or outdoor music fest.



5. Forever 21 peplum top, $17.80
This peplum top strikes all the right notes from the color to the cut to the print. Thinking it might look good with the colored crop pants I just bought at Target.



Picked up any polka dots lately (or maybe you've worn them on your blog?) - share a link and let me know in the comments!

I got this skirt in black/white from F21 a couple months ago, and I love it!

I also ordered these two from Old Navy online, but I haven't received them yet. Excited for them though!

Old Navy has a lot of cute polka dot stuff right now in their new arrivals.
