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.
Tod’s Camp-Collar Printed Silk-Twill Shirt
Made from lightweight silk, this retro blue-and-white button-down pairs best with linen pants and a solid white sneaker.
Marni Tropical Bow Sandals
With a sturdy leather exterior, comfy flat soles, and a tropical bow, these sandals have both city street and beachwear appeal. A buckle closure and an open-toed design make them easy to slip on and off.
Mercedes Salazar Carmen Miranda Earrings
These oversized clip-on earrings, made from vintage crystals and acrylic and gold-plated bronze, can add a whimsical touch to white jeans and a linen blouse.
Onia Charles 5" Swim Trunks
A lightweight, fast-drying, and fade-resistant fabric makes this swimsuit functional while its bright print gives the trunks a retro aesthetic. Wear them to the beach, then pair with a simple tee for post-swim outings.
Versace TROPICAL COLLAGE SAFETY PIN CROSSBODY BAG
The design on this bag is a mash-up of three different prints from past Versace collections. Thanks to its cross-body composition and adjustable shoulder strap, it’s ideal for carrying small necessities on a night out.
