Tropical Prints to Crave for Summer

Publish date:

The best season ever is here—summertime—and we’re celebrating by stocking up on tropical prints. And we don’t mean your dad’s Hawaiian shirts. From pineapples to palm trees to parrots, tropi-cool patterns rocked the runways of Prada, Marni, and Marc Jacobs. We’ve been dreaming of paradise-inspired prints since we saw them parade down the catwalk last September, and finally the time is upon us to live the look.

Whether you’re actually jetting to a tropical location in the upcoming weeks or simply looking to bring island vibes to your weekend staycation, these on-trend pieces will be in wardrobe high rotation all summer. Closet musts include a Miami-inspired tropical-print tank from Kenzo, a printed hat that makes the transition from the beach to brunch, a bright one-piece bathing suit, and a printed party dress. Worried about pulling off bold designs? Start with accents like a clutch or bikini top before rocking a full-on tropical outfit.
