Hey fashionistas! I don’t know about you, but I have been OBSESSED with tropical prints this summer. I love how bright and colorful they are, how they make me feel like I’m on a beach vacay even when I’m just at a rooftop party in Brooklyn. They are definitely my go-to trend for the summer.
Unfortunately I have been disappointed to find that everytime I search “tropical prints” there are little to no plus size options. Sigh, story of my life. I figured that I couldn’t be the only one vying for these fun, flirty prints, so I have gathered fifteen tropical plus size prints in various forms, from dresses to jumpsuits, swimsuits to palazzo pants.
