The Polka Dot Tee: Three Ways

For those of you that do not follow me on Instagram, this polka dot tee is kind of a big deal. I found it at Forever 21 a few months ago for $8.80, and knew it would be an instant classic in my closet - and the perfect backdrop for my statement necklaces!

It became wildly popular among the IG fashionistas in no time, and I even picked extras up in the store and sent them to two of my friends, Katelin of My Wardrobe Staples and Blanca (@beulloa on IG)!! So it was a no brainer with Katelin asked Whitley of Simply Whit in a Sequined Life and I to collaborate with her, and show our followers three ways to style this adorable tee! Be sure to stop by their blogs and give them some love!!

I am a big proponent of dressing up tees to make them more office-friendly. I paired my polka dot tee with a pencil skirt and patent leather flats for a polished look that can be worn in a more conservative office:

Top: Forever 21 (similar here, here and here)
Skirt: Liz Claiborne via JCPenney
Necklace: c/o Silver Linings Shop
Watch: Fossil
Bracelet: Silpada
Bag: Target, borrowed from Whitley
Nails: Big Apple Red by OPI

Here are some ways that I have previously styled my tee:
Thanks for reading! Hope you all have a safe and fun holiday weekend!!



  1. I love all these looks! That shirt is such a versatile piece!

  2. Love this! This is one of my favorite t-shirts and I have you to thank for it =) I wouldn't have thought to dress it up with a pencil skirt so I am excited to transition this tee to fall with inspiration from this post! Also, I am so so happy you are back to posting more, and that you are happy with your new rotation placement (I meant to post yesterday, but ran out of time, eek!).


  3. Love how versatile this top is. So cute how you made it look dressy too!

  6. You were absolutely right saying this polka dot is the perfect backdrop for statement necklace, as well as scarves! So many outfits in different styles with just one $8.80 t-shirt! Adorable tee!
