The fashion world loves polka dots these days, but even if you're not normally a fan of their throwback feel, there are ways to modernize the look that's sexy and sophisticated while still maintaining the print's classic whimsy. Sheer polka dot blouses give you the perfect balance of retro elegance and updated chicness, for a look that's lightweight, breezy, yet polished for spring.. The sheer sexiness of this Equipment 'Bailey' Mini Dot Blouse off-sets its conservative buttoned-up silhouette – pair with a lacy bralette underneath, if you're feeling daring, or a more modest coordinating cami. Tie-neck blouses continue to be in for the season ahead, so sass up your typical work ensemble with a romantic sheer top like this one from Forever 21 (just make sure you have the appropriate coverage underneath, of course!). And lastly, if you're looking for something a bit more dramatic, try this exaggerated-sleeve Haute Hippie 'Gypsy' Blouse tucked into a fitted skirt to balance its extra volume!
