Fashion Translation: Eclectic Tropical Style

Right around this time of year, one trend always re-appears bigger, badder, and brighter than ever. That trend, my friends, is the tropical look. When you really think about it, tropical destination-inspired patterns and color palettes are totally spot-on for the warm months ahead. Recently, Emilio Pucci showcased his 2017 Resort collection, full of eclectic leafy patterns mixed with variegated stripes, all in a juicy color palette grounded in crisp white and stark black. This is all the inspiration you need to bring this look into your home and wardrobe!

If you’re not able to jet away to a tropical locale this summer for vacation, why not bring the tropics into your home instead? I’m loving these over-sized, bold prints for any room in the house. I’m thinking a more neutral, 2-color leafy patterned rug would be a nice addition to my dining room, while I’d go extra-bold with a mish mash of juicy, lush colors for my living room. In terms of pattern, think palm fronds, huge monstera leaves, and hibiscus florals. The addition of stripes helps to soften this trend and make it more streamlined for the use in the home. These are just a few of my favorites!
