Polka dots are a fun and refreshing way to take a plunge into your summer holiday mood. All that matters is the size of the dots (Read: Polka) and how you wear it. I am not saying that you have to cover yourself in dots from head to toe. That looks good only on runways. Even a subtle hint of polka dots (Read: in the form of accessories) can enhance your style quotient and break the monotony of a basic look.
