Toning Down Tropical Prints

Tropical prints are definitely not a year-round type of style, but that doesn’t mean you can only wear them when the weather reaches 90 degrees. The secret really is in the styling and pairing these bright florals with pieces that are darker and more substantial. I’ve had this red floral top for a number of years now and I find myself pulling it out year after year, each time styling it differently from the last. When we had some warm weather recently I took the opportunity to wear it again, this time styled with my favorite pair of Levi’s and my trusty leather jacket. I can still get my jumpstart on summer but in a seasonally appropriate way. I included some tropical printed pieces to get into your wardrobe now that can take you straight through to summer weather.
