Very often, wearing a buttoned shirt gives your outfit a sense of seriousness. This is good when you’re trying to look professional and wear it as part of your work outfit. In fact, if you want something a little more refreshing, I would even assume that you can wear a pretty shirt instead of a plain colored shirt. The dotted shirt is generally very versatile and can be worn either as part of a causal outfit or a work outfit. For this blog post, I’ve rounded up some of the best polka dot shirt outfit ideas. You’ll be amazed at how good they look and how easy it is to peel them off.
Black and white polka dot shirt with khaki shorts
As a minimalist and stylish summer casual outfit, you can wear a black and white polka dot shirt with khaki shorts. Sandals are the perfect choice for the outfit.
Gray and white polka dot shirt with gray skinny jeans
Polka dot shirts are perfect for work as part of a business casual outfit. You won’t look as serious as if you wear a solid button shirt, but you will still look professional enough. So it really comes down to whether or not you want a more refreshing look for a particular day. As an example of a business casual outfit, you can wear a gray and white polka dot shirt with gray skinny jeans. To spice up the gray outfit a little, you can wear a pair of pink ballerinas.
Black shirt with skinny jeans
Similar to the previous outfit, this one is also a business casual outfit. For the top, wear a black and white polka dot shirt. Pair it with black skinny jeans with cuffs and leather ankle boots.
White and navy polka dot shirt with white pencil skirt
Compared to the previous outfits, this outfit is much more feminine and elegant and can either be worn to work or just casually. Instead of using black or gray as the main color of the shirt, a white is just a much softer tone and just looks so beautiful. Wear the white and navy polka dot shirt with a white pencil skirt. Keep the refreshing feeling constant by wearing bare sandals or heels.
