THE HOT LIST: TROPICAL CHIC

Are you having as much fun with prints this spring as we are? Colorful tapestry designs, ’70s-inspired florals, all kinds of paisleys – you name it, we’re smitten. Our latest love is this exquisite take on tropical. A distant cousin to old-school aloha patterns, the print’s palm design has the artistic edge of modern graphic novels and vintage woodcut prints, plus a color presence that’s subtle and uniquely pretty. Altogether it feels city-girl chic, and it doesn’t need much in the way of extras to make an impression. Whether you go for the print in a flirty dress or a separate, stick to clothing pairings that are simple, solid and shape-flattering, and accessories with unfussy lines. Pro tip: Add a luxe straw bag for a clever nod to the pattern’s island roots.
