8 ways to wear tropical prints

The tourist staple gets a high-fashion upgrade.

Showcased on the Spring 2018 runways of Marc Jacobs and Fenty Puma, tropical prints are here to stay for the summer. Exotic florals and banana leaves are staples of the eye-catching designs, which nod to the fanciful fabrics and bright colors of the 1960s. Here are eight season-appropriate picks to choose from, including a Prada yoga mat and Converse that will garner attention in and out of the gym.
