If I had to pick a print to wear for the rest of my life I would hands down pick tropical.
I adore tropical print because it is so colorful, exotic, playful and it has just a touch of kitsch. Because I live on the West Coast I have been to Hawaii quite a few times and it is one of my favorite places on earth. Add in the Hawaiian renaissance of the 1950s and you have some pretty amazing inspiration.
My only issue with tropical prints is they can go to the tacky side quite quickly. There is a lot of bad tropical print out there. I find wearing tropical print in small doses, like a skirt, blouse, or purse can help keep this bright fabric from becoming “too much” for a classic woman. Of course I consider myself to be a “vintage or retro” style gal, so I go whole hog with tropical printed dresses all of the time!
I have put together a few tropical print boards for you to be inspired this season. If you have never purchased anything with a tropical print then I suggest now is the time! And for those of you who are like me, you will find plenty of options to add to your wardrobe.
I seriously need all of this in my closet right now! So tell me, which item is your favorite?
