Whenever I have an upcoming trip and start establishing my wardrobe, without fail I end up adding new pieces before I leave. Clearly, still relevant for a whale of an inspiration like Italy.

I'm sure a lot of you are like me and assume you can't pull off polka dots as a grown ass woman. The key is to amp the sexy with the silhouette: spaghetti cami, low neckline, off the shoulder, bigger print for a unique spin. I chose my favorite color to keep it sultry. A pair of heels can't hurt either.

Besides Italian fulfillment, this polka dot trend should be able to carry you through all of the summer weddings you RSVP'd to. Below are some of my favorite picks of the newest trend!
