How to Style our ADORABLE Polka Dot Dress

Sweetpea Finery on 10th Jun 2019

Black and white polka dots, what could be cuter? This timeless print is always a favourite, and with our adorable "Dotty About You" dress we show you three great ways to style polka dots for the races. 

When it comes to dressing for the races, a little more impact is expected than a usual street style look. 

But first... you're probably wondering... can one wear a mini to the races?  

Well, if you look at some of the great looks that many of Australia's top celebrities have been wearing to big raceday, the answer is a YES!, But there are a few tips. We've got an upcoming blog post on how to style a mini for the races. 

In this case, the volume in the sleeve and the more relaxed around the waist and hips, combined with polished hair and makeup, makes this mini race-day appropriate. 

There are hundreds of ways to style a great black and white dress, but these are three of our top picks for this adorable polka dot mini. 

Look #1

We've paired the polka dot dress with our "Black Beauty" Booties to give a little more leg coverage and add some cool factor, then we've popped bold bright yellow with our funky "Patent Yellow" wristlet bag, and "Ellie" fascinator in yellow. 

Look #2

Keeping the vibe fresh and youthful, this time we've worked with a monochrome black palette, but added texture into the look with this pretty soft "Shirley" headband, and a textured shiny black "Danielle" bag. Once again the black booties add a youthful edge. 

Look #3

We've worked the white to the max in this look, with the "Juno" oversized statement fascinator... and those red lips.. Maddie looks like she's straight out of a Colgate commercial! A simple white acrylic clutch, and fun shoes with ruffles and ankle straps, all from Sweetpea Finery complete this fresh breezy look.
