Men in Dots : Polka dots for Summer 2013

Majority of the male species think that polka dots are only for the women. Well, this is a complete fashion myth. Polka dots are a fun and refreshing way to take a plunge into your summer holiday mood. All that matters is the size of the dots (Read: Polka) and how you wear it. I am not saying that you have to cover yourself in dots from head to toe. That looks good only on runways. Even a subtle hint of polka dots (Read: in the form of accessories) can enhance your style quotient and break the monotony of a basic look.

I guess, I have had enough of prints (Aztec, Tribal, Camouflage,Geometric and others) hence given a choice, my first preference would be always a subtle classic (Read: size matters) small print  polka dot shirt, necktie, bow, pocket square, scarf, suspender, cufflink or even a pair of socks. That does not mean that I am going to wear all of it in one go, unless I have serious thoughts of becoming a clown.

How to incorporate the look? You can keep the rest of your outfit simple when wearing a polka dot shirt or you may opt for a  polka dot pocket square or a skinny tie to bring in an element of classic style to your over all look. You can also rock the look by pairing your polka dot shirt with a pair of jeans. Options are many. 

Style Mantra: Stick to one piece at a time and let it make a statement.

Polka dots are definitely high on my list for Summer 2013. How about yours?
