Statement Polka Dot Skirt (Again)

Statement Polka Dot Skirt (Again)

If you want to make a statement, a polka dot midi skirt will do the trick.  As long as you have an anchor in the outfit, mixing two different prints is a cinch.  The bold polka dot skirt mixed with the equally bold floral heels creates an eye-catching look that works.  See how I anchored the outfit below!

The midi skirt is one of my favorite new trends that has popped up over the past couple of seasons.  The midi style is truly flattering on all figures and upgrades your usual skirt game level to glamourous.  I found this beauty in the window of Boutique on the Hill on Pennsylvania Ave in Washington DC.  The owner, Dorian, was one of the sweetest people we met in DC and I just new I had to get this timeless piece.

Mixing prints is not as daunting as it sounds.  The typical rule of thumb is to mix patterns that are on different scales.  If one print is larger, then mix a smaller print with it.  Another rule is to keep the prints in the same color family.  I destroyed that rule with this outfit, but considering the skirt is black and white (technically both neutrals), I think adding shoes that contain pink, blue, green, and yellow works.

I anchored the outfit with a bright pink top that identically matches the pink in the shoes.  Matching the colors tied the whole outfit together with an equal balance of black and white accessories.
