Polka Dot Party Dress Styled 5 Ways

Hey hey hey! As promised, I've styled the so cute Ann Taylor Factory polka dot party dress a handful of ways. Scroll through the album for hints and ideas. This dress is a total classic and a steal for just $47.99 right now. This dress is available in both petite and missy and is sized XS-XL. Mine is a Medium Petite for reference. I love that it has an A-line fit without a defined waist so it is really comfortable. The fabric is light and fully lined.

I only touched on a few ways to style this dress and there are countless others. It would look beautiful with this season's blush pink accessories or a pop of canary yellow. You can wear it to work with a blazer. It's so versatile that I know you'll enjoy wearing it lots of ways to lots of places.

Super cute and easy breezy dressing here! Belting didn't shorten the hem too much (still mom-appropriate) and shortening the hemline just a bit really helps make petite legs look longer. The jean jacket is another wardrobe staple that can work with many mom-friendly looks. Find it here at LOFT. :)F

I love the idea of polka dots for cocktail attire. I paired it with rhinestone laceup heels by Stuart Weitzman (they came from The Foxy Lady) and did rhinestone earrings and cuff. The key to wearing this to a fancy dress party is making sure that you are comfortable attracting attention because this dress will pop amid a sea of black dresses. Making the look work means doing very clean and youthful makeup. I would do hair in a chic topknot and wear understated and fresh looking makeup like a medium pink lip (which will make you look younger) and a healthy flush of blush. If you want to go all out glam with a red lip, keep your eyes toned down with a champagne shadow and two coats of black mascara.

A little Kate Spade-inspired preppiness here. I added a green skinny belt and a raspberry cardigan plus I got to playing around with a brooch and ribbon and made a little accessory. This would go so many great places like Easter church service, brunch, a shower, mother's day, graduation, a wedding, a derby party. Find a similar shoe here.

If I had this to do over, I would swap out my footwear. I love these leather flower wedges but in this picture they remind me of vintage bedroom slippers. :) Hehe. Nonetheless, I love the dress topped with a longer sweater like this Sarah style from Lularoe. Here is a similar style clutch. 


  1. This is still my favorite getup! I absolutely love it.

  2. It is a great get up! So many places the stress can go. My favorite part is how comfortable it feels on. Loose but not frumpy looking.
