Style secret:
My style secret is to always have fun with your wardrobe. Mix patterns and prints, play with colors and textures therefore you won’t get bored with your clothes.

Style Icons: I never really thought about a style icon but if I have to categorize my style, I would say classic like Audrey Hepburn yet funky like Rihanna.

 

The Garment:
The item I chose was a thrifted polka dot maxi dress. When I saw this dress at the Goodwill, I knew I had to have it because

  1. Polka Dots are amazing

  2. I knew this would be a piece that could bring about versatility within my closet.

 

Look One: The Classic Dress

 

A Polka Dot Maxi is such a classy and classic look. It can be sustained and worn through any season and will never go out of style.

 

Look Two: Scarf

 

One of my favorite style hacks is to mix and match patterns. In the second look, I turned that long polka dot maxi dress into a cute scarf for Fall paired with a black and white striped bodycon dress. If you didn’t think you could do so, know that you can turn anything into a scarf for added outfit pizzazz.

 

Look Three:

 

Can you believe that long maxi dress fit into some cute denim overalls?! For the third look I wanted a cute but patterned top to wear under my overalls and polka dots were a great fit. I feel that the pattern added extra flair to a simple everyday look.
