How to Wear Polka Dot Prints | Spring 2013 Shopping

Sarah Jessica Parker invoked the styling spirit of Carrie Bradshaw last night, wearing a ladylike ensemble punctuated by print-on-print mixing and a flash of brights. And even if you're not a proponent of the head-to-toe pattern movement, there's something to be said for the way SJP made the look approachable, feminine, and, well, fun. Plus, this has Spring written all over it. Whether you deem it appropriate for officewear or, like Parker, feel it's more of a playful evening option, it strikes a light balance between textural intrigue, darker hues, and a look to the warmer season ahead. To follow suit, style a polka-dot dress (the inverse palette works, too) and juxtapose it against a different (read: graphic) print. Parker chose a windowpane-checked cardigan, but an animal-print version is a viable alternative. As for the brighter shoe choice? Stick to the bold pink color. It adds a second focal point to the outfit, and let's be honest, it's just an excellent use of the girlier shade. For the key elements — plus, all the add-ons — shop our look below.
