You need to have minimum one clothing item that has polka dots on them.  There are some safe ways to wear polka dots and still look classy or at the lease not silly.

While polka dots are a classic print, it's possible to break out of the retro route by accommodating metallic or silver mini polka dots on a bright colour base. The polka dots should also be proportional to your shape; if you have a bigger bust, the print should be slightly larger to balance a bigger chest and you are petite on top, the polka dots should be smaller to keep things proportional.
