This top has a pretty bold dot on it, so I thought it best to stick with other solids for the office. The trick to keeping polka dot  office attire professional is not to over do it with the polka dots.  Smaller patterns are usually more office appropriate. When the pattern is larger, make sure the item of clothing is structured like a button up, popover, or even a pencil skirt.

I have been gravitating to my guest bedroom where my fall clothes are stored and pulling out pieces like this cardigan more and more often. Maybe I’m bored with the summer clothes, or maybe the fall hype is getting to me, but it’s no where near time to swap out the closets. It’s still so hot. I have had this cardigan on my mind for wearing with another top, and I can reasonably wear it to the office thanks to cold AC.

What are your thoughts on wearing polka dots to the office? or polka dots in general? Not serious enough? Too whimsical or totally appropriate?
