Would You Wear… Polka Dot Pants?

If the title of this article has you thinking we’re headed to the circus, think again! Polka dot pants don’t have to be only for clowns. In fact, they can be pretty cute if you give them the chance.

Whether in jean or trouser form, polka dot pants give off a dainty, feminine feel. While some are quite the statement piece (exhibit A), those of us who aren’t as daring still have plenty of options as well (exhibit B).

Keep in mind, the more subtle the spots, the easier this look is to pull off. Think of polka dots as a cute way of breaking up a solid color; a pattern for the pattern-shy, if you will.

What do you think about polka dot pants?

Is this a trend you would like to try out? How would you style polka dot pants? Which look above is your pick? Leave a comment below and let’s talk about it!

    I would! They are super pretty. But I’m more gravitating towards shorts :)

    Yesssss! Bought a pair last year at Goodwill.. They’re black with white polka dots. I’ve worn them with a chambray shirt with gold flats and also a black v-neck sweater and pointy toe black flats. I’m hoping I can find another pair soon! They’re here to stay for me!

    Yes I would try this! I would wear “A” with a loose v-neck tee that hits at the hip instead … and the red flats. I like all three looks!

    They give a feminine look something out of the ordinary that gives them spunk. Plus anybody can rock polka dots!

    If I wore trousers I might (sorry, for me the term pants is reserved for underwear ^^) but the only time I wear trousers is for work. I might have to make a Spotlight trip to make a cute dot dress though.

    YES YES YES! My French teacher wore these pastel yellow polka dot pants one day, and I fell in love. I just have no idea where to get them at a low price.

    I would definitely rock the polka dot jeans! Current/Elliot has some really adorable pairs but they’re so expensive!

    Also, I have issues finding them in long enough inseams. :(

    Love them! Though I have to say it irked me a bit that Exhibit A and B are both external links–poor choice in editing, or was there an issue getting the photos from the websites? Even if it was, I feel like it would be worthwhile to try and find a way around that.

    I guess I’m the first to admit I wouldn’t wear these! I’m pretty fond of bold pants- I love the colored denim trend, and I even think muted leopard print skinnies are cute, but polka dots? That just seems a little too out there to me.
