Summer is in full swing, and that means it’s time to enjoy this season’s top fashion trends. One summer 2021 trend we can’t get enough of? Tropical prints! Sure, tropical patterns have been around for a while — but they still feel fresh and modern this season thanks to new motifs and vibrant on-trend tones.
We especially love tropical prints for summer because they are appropriate for almost every occasion, from casual outings to date nights. Of course, nothing compares to sipping a delicious cocktail on the beach while dressed in your most colorful tropical print dress!

Nothing beats a classic white and green palm print for summer. For an easy everyday look, style a pair of tropical leaf print shorts (like these mid-rise palm leaf print shorts or these palm leaf shorts with pom detailing) with a simple white tank, sandals and beachy dangle earrings.
For a more understated pop of print, we love this palm leaves smartwatch band. And how cute would this palm leaf sports bra look under a tee for a casual coffee run, yoga class or morning at the farmers market?
Tropical Flower Power
This stunning tropical print dress was practically made for sundrenched days and balmy nights by the sea. The off-the-shoulder cut and tassel details are super on-trend for summer, while the tie waist ensures a flattering fit. We love the dreamy color palette and bold florals!
Style a floral dress like this one with wedges, beaded dangle earrings and a chic straw bag for the perfect summer night out or beach vacation look. Speaking of bags, we love this tropical tote bag by Spartina! It’s the perfect size for carrying all of your essentials.
Creative Critter Motifs
Florals and palm leaves may be among the most popular tropical prints, but they are certainly not the only ones. Stand out this summer by sporting playful and artistic motifs featuring flamingos, toucans, crabs, turtles and other island-dwelling critters.
We are obsessed with this blue turtle print dress. Slip on some sandals and sunglasses, and you are ready to head out the door. So effortless! In terms of tropical print accessories, we are seriously loving this stunning parrot beaded crossbody bag.
Summer is the perfect time to play with bold, vibrant, multicolored prints. Say hello to your new go-to: the Palm Bay Palm Leaf Dress. Don’t these gorgeous colors just scream “summertime?” Pair this dress with wedges or sandals and an oversized straw hat, and feel yourself slip away into a vacation state of mind.
This fun tropical print kimono is another great piece to have in your wardrobe this summer. While the primary color of this kimono is white, it features a variety of motifs in colors like green, blue, pink, orange and yellow. Layer it over a solid-colored tank and cutoff denim shorts on a warm day for a look that is summery, playful and on-trend.
You can also embrace the bold multicolored print trend by incorporating it into your accessories. These vibrant tropical slip-on-shoes will add a fun pop of color to your outfit without overwhelming your whole look.
On the other hand, island-inspired prints don’t always have to be so bold. There are plenty of ways to enjoy the tropical print trend while sticking to more muted colors and subtle designs. This tropical kimono still features a gorgeous beachy pattern, but the classic blue and white color scheme makes it feel more toned down. Totally wearable for date nights, family gatherings, shopping trips and everything in between.
For a casual and tropical daytime look, throw on this tropical print hat featuring a beautiful muted color palette. Perfect for covering up unwashed hair and adding a subtle pop of color to your outfit.
Pretty in Pink
Bright pink tones are everywhere this season, from designer runways to Instagram feeds. Why not make the most of your summer wardrobe by combining the hot pink trend with the tropical print trend? Style this vibrant tropical print kimono with denim shorts and oversized sunglasses for a cute summer look.
This oh-so-pretty Pink Lemonade scrunchie by Spartina is an easy way to add a tropical, feminine flair to any outfit (not to mention keeping your hair out of the way on a humid summer day).
We hope this roundup of tropical print clothing has sparked some outfit inspiration. Which pieces are you ready to show off this summer?
