I haven’t done one of my theboxqueen’s never out of style series (here and here for the previous posts in the series) for a while now. In these series I talk about pieces that have been around for ages but always make a comeback modernized, re-designed, or embellished for the current times.
I have been thinking to myself that I missed sharing my forever in my wardrobe pieces with you gals that I ran into her in Macy’s at my shopping trip for my kids. A cute little tee with neon polka dots staring at me wide eyed and of course my heart melted. It took me seconds to grab her and run to the register without even stopping by the dressing room first. When I came home and finally put her on it was a perfect fit. Now I call this serendipity!
Polka dots have been around for centuries and they have been a part of a variety of girl’s closets from Old Hollywood glamour actress to the 1950’s domestic goddess’s. In our times we see polka dots everywhere from scarfs to tee’s worn by every women; always with a bit of a new twist but staying the beautiful classic it is. I don’t own that many polka dot pieces, but come to think of it, I have worn polka dot dresses both in my bridal shower and at one of my kid’s baby showers. It seems like polka dots make an appearance in special events in my life.
Here are some amazing polka dot options ( I also bought the Forever 21 tee, and scarf below; they are SUCH deals) followed by my own styling of my new polka dot tee. Hope you enjoy!

I love this modern version of polka dots with the neon bright.
Style Tip: Dressing up simple tee’s like this one here is great for multi-tasking your top for more glam outfits. Here, combined with a chiffon flowy skirt from Golden Tote , ( they have monthly tote sales, amazing deals on boutique brands, you can sign-up the newsletter for sales news), and lace peep toe shooties, the top takes on a much fancier role.
My Maison Jules tee is sold out online but here are some other great Polka dot pieces by the same brand.
Style Tip: A wide belt (with a lot of detailing here) is perfect for any body type as a figure flattering accessory, defining the waist and your curves. I like to mix it up with different styles in my outfits so I added on a metal studded belt to offset the extreme girliness. You can use any wide belt, more classic or modern, to achieve your desired taste.
