Polka Dot Pants: Thumbs up or down?

Monday, April 8, 2013

How would you fancy wearing dotty pants this spring? Dots and stripes make about 60% of my closet, so I'm pretty partial and ever since I got this navy pair, I've been totally smitten with this trend. They look so sassy with simple tees, comfy flats and stylish blazers. I'm sold! You? Which colour is calling your name?

P.S: Here are four that I really like: in black, coral, camel and green!
P.P.S: Or if you fancy transforming your old pair of denims into dotty-trend-goodness, here is a nifty how to:)

I love this style so much with the mini polka dots but alas I was so sad that it just didn't look good on me. It could have been that the denim color was too light though...I'll try a pair of those new GAP skimmers with the dark wash denim and mini polka dots to see if it works!! It's too cute a trend not to try again!

So cute! It propably wouldnt look good one me, but I will see if I can find the same sort of like the last red polka dot pantq :) In love.

This is one of those, "yes, for everyone but me" looks. Absolutely love how these ladies have pulled it off (especially love the navy), but not sure I'd rock it myself.

Well I am definitely a printed pants fan, but the polka dots don't really do it for me, oddly enough.

I think I never told you this, but one of the things I like the most about your post is the rich selection of images/sources you always include. I get SO much inspiration from you, darling! As for the dotty pants, thumbs up, all the way. :) Muah!

yes! thumbs up! love this look!

I love it! You just convinced me to get a pair that I was going back and forth on. Normally I'm a pretty simple dresser and don't wear a ton of patterns (mostly just stripes). But your suggestions for how to balance out the print won me over! Thank you!

Those are super cute! I'd love an apple-green pair!

I'm simply inloved with my pair of dotted jeans! At first sight I wasn't so sure about them, but now they are the most worn pair of pants in my closet. And they go great with sneakers, heels or flats. Anyhoo, the polka dots make me loose a squeak every time I see them, so no wonder why I have dotted socks, scarves, plates, dishes, bedding clothes and so on. I know, I'm a polka dots freak! But, cheers to that!

Chloe, my friend got a pair of those: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=450863&locale=en_US&kwid=1&sem=false&sdReferer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.gap.com%2Fproducts%2Fthe-new-skimmer-womens-C92189.jsp

in coral and they look amazing on her. The cut is so lovely and very flattering.

Sini, the last pair tickles my fancy as well.

Diana Mieczan said...

I was worried about the print at first too, That Girl in Pearls but as soon as I got the navy colour pair, I felt super comfy in them.

I LOVE your comment, Ann!!!

Diana Mieczan said...

Bryony said...

Seriously, Diana...how many of your pictures are plastered all over my Pinterest boards!?

I love the polka dot trousers thing...if the dots are small. I think the big dots just look silly, but the little ones are a chic addition of print where you might not expect it. I think it's fun! I might just have to go hunt down a pair, now...

Diana Mieczan said...

Giggle, Bryony:) Your comment made me smile:)
