Polka dots have been popular since the mid-nineteenth century, when the polka -- the dance the pattern was named after -- was at its height. Today, polka dots are perhaps best known for their use in costumes for flamenco dancers, but this season they won't be the only ones enjoying the festive print. Polka dots have been adapted for work wear by top designers and wallet-friendly retailers; check out the spots on wide-leg, high-waisted, and drawstring pants at high and low price points.
