This palm print top checks all the boxes of the Summer 2017 trends: the leaf print, off the shoulder, ruffles, and it’s a bodysuit! This botanical print of tropical variety is having a major moment this summer. It is everywhere you turn and not only on clothes. You can find palm print accessories, kids clothes and home decor items.
It is a big, in your face, vibrant print. Probably not to everyone’s taste and not very versatile. I don’t know if I would be rocking a tropical print in an urban environment … (Never say never!) But if there’s one place you can let your palm print obsession run wild, it should be on a tropical vacation.
I wore this bodysuit paired with a white flowy skirt and flat sandals on my vacation in Cancun. (You saw my swim top with a similar print here.) Because I am not very optimistic about the longevity of the palm print trend, I am not willing to invest in expensive pieces. This bodysuit was only $15 – not a big loss if I never get to wear it again because the print becomes passé by the end of the summer.
And in keeping with the tropical plants, I went for my Cult Gaia Arc bag made entirely of bamboo. Wrap bracelet and earrings were courtesy of my Stella and Dot Stylist friend, Desiree Ortman.
