It’s not the holidays if Home Alone isn’t blaring in the background of your home about 80 percent of the waking hours. And while Harry and Marv’s trick falls and Kevin McAlister’s aftershave scream get all the spotlight, I think that John Candy as the Polka King of the Midwest takes the cake. Apparently, the people at Outdoor Voices feel similarly (this has not, however, been verified), because the brand is re-releasing its popular polka dot print in new styles as well as some old favorites—just in time for the holidays and Polka! Polka! season. What’s more? The prints already have a 2,000 person waitlist, so if we were you, we’d sign up ASAP.
One of the original exercise dress prints, the polka dot pattern rose to fame in the 2018 era of athleisure, when it was rare to find anything other than leggings and matching crop tops for activity. The exercise dress—and the corresponding bright colors, and in this case, fun print—helped to open up a new category of sportswear that was really meant to encourage movement in any form that it takes—walking the dog, taking a hike, rolling over from your left side to your right side on the couch, traveling long distances with a polka band because you forgot your son at home while you flew to Paris. Shop the prints in its many forms below.
