Add a modern twist to your retro-inspired jeans by pairing them with a mint ombre sweater. Next, grab a pair of cut-out brogues and a pink woven belt for a cute and casual look. A bold floral tote adds feminine flair, while pretty silver jewelry, like a charm necklace and bird-shaped studs, completes the look with a touch of shine.

Polka Dot Jeans: Night Out

Go bold and eclectic for your night look and pair your jeans with a stark white peplum top. Then add a lilac statement necklace to put a trendy twist on this ultra-feminine look. Show off your adventurous side with a daring yellow clutch and bright floral pumps – the quirky contrast between prints adds fashionable edge. No night out is complete without a touch of bling, so finish off the look with some colorful crystal earrings.

    ^ LOL Ana! I’m sure you’re not the only one but I’m a fan through & through! Carina, I love the night out look. I think mixing florals and polka dots is very chic.

    Recently, I experimented with the polka dot trend. I wore these black/white polka dot paperbag shorts with a silky white shirt tucked in and a dalmatian print belt. Over it, I wore a black/white tweed moto jacket with faux leather sleeves, a light gray scarf, black loafers, and a deep red crossbody for a pop of color :).

    I love polka dots, but jeans… no, not really. Seem slightly infantile to me.

    Ana, I’m not a huge fan either- I think it’s just a little too girly/ twee for my personal tastes (which is more bright colours, artsy, boho, urban etc).

    It might work better for people who have a more preppy/ hipster sort of style though (hence the florals, brogues & light colours in the outfit suggestions)?

    If your style isn’t preppy/ hipster etc, I think you could still get away with wearing them in an irregular polka dot print, or in a black/ white mix? If I was forced into a pair of polka pants, I’d choose black ones (with white dots) to wear with a crazily saturated colour mix- like a lime green tunic/ hot pink shoes/ bright orange bag.

    Hope that gives you ideas on how to tailor polka pants more to your own personal style/ tastes? :)

    I started loving this trend after seeing Poppy Delevingne and Taylor Swift rocking it, but no one else so far. Love the night outfit though. Kudos! :)

    I love printed jeans, but not think print. I love polka dots, but not on jeans. I don’t think I could quite get on board with this one.

    Love the trend, but I think the link for the third pair from the left (my personal fave) is the wrong link. Correction please!

    I like the trend but I think these polka dots are huge. I have seen nice jeans from Lauren Conrad Collection and Forever 21 with very small tiny polka dots which keep it trendy but a little more understated.
