Despite the cliché, tropical prints are a wardrobe must in the hot summer months. Consisting of a plethora of prints ranging from palm trees to exotic florals, tropical prints may have you taking a vacation 24/7. Fashion-wise that is.
Resembling the Hawaiian shirt your dad or grandpa wore, tropical prints have gone farther than just a Luau or vacation staple piece. They have been seen on the runway from designers like Armani and have been in retail stores like Zara and Forever 21.
This bold and bright print will have you feeling refreshed. Is the tropical print too touristy for your taste? Give your outfit a modern feel by pairing your tropical piece with another pattern. Do you have a tropical print dress and just don’t know what to wear it with? Pair your dress with a simple jean jacket and simple accessories to highlight the print.
One tip to keep in mind when wearing this print for the summer is to not over accessorize. Keep it simple since the print is so bold!
