A tropical print doesn’t require jetting off to an exotic island (though it is encouraged); you simply need to work it into a stylish outfit. Because a tiki-inspired print can get kitschy quickly, we rounded up eight spot-on ways to wear the print this summer (and threw in a little shopping too). Enjoy!
Style Tip: Pair a Hawaiian-print button-down shirt with a pencil skirt in a contrasting print, like stripes. Throw in a pair of tortoise shell sunnies for good measure.
Style Tip: If you’re committing to a tropical print, go all out and try it with a jumpsuit. Tone it down with neutral accessories, like a black belt, flat sandals, and a shoulder bag.
Style Tip: Embrace the island vibes and pair your leafy top with a pair of denim cutoffs and a bold jewelry piece (we’re loving this street styler’s roped necklace).
Style Tip: If you’re up for the challenge, wear a fashion-forward piece (like a pleated skirt) in a tropical print, and pair it with cool separates, like a denim shirt and mini-bag.
Style Tip: Give your tropical-print skirt a feminine touch, and style it with a lacey blouse and satin pumps.
Style Tip: Try a mirror print for a contemporary take on the trend.
Style Tip: Even if you’re not on vacation, you can still dress like it! Tuck a fun t-shirt into a pair of hibiscus-print shorts for an easy weekend outfit.
Style Tip: Pair a chambray shirt and animal-print clutch with a tropical-inspired skirt for a fun and flirty date night outfit.
