Confessions of a former slide skeptic.

In 2018, a contentious movement emerged within the fashion sphere: Tropical print clothes were deemed veritably trendy, leaving many shocked, confused and appalled. How could tropical prints—a pattern once exclusively reserved for frat bros and dads on vacation—possibly be worthy of the hippest influencer in your Instagram feed? Well folks, gird your loins, because 2018’s tropical print trend has endured well into 2019—and tropical print clothes are all up in your favorite retailers right now. Though many decried the return of the tropical print, I celebrated it. Because as far as this fashion editor is concerned, clothing is a realm where play should be encouraged. If our outfits are, truly, extensions of ourselves, should they not be as colorful, as vibrant, as textured and interesting and genuinely fun as we are? All-black-everything is an undeniably chic uniform, but I’ve always favored structural strangeness, mismatched prints and saturated shades over homogeneity. Tropical prints, as inherently tacky as they are, force us all to acknowledge the banality we’ve been so apt to embrace in our wardrobes—the number of ensembles we’ve inherited from others. Tropical prints are so bold, so bright, so often (let’s be real) ugly, that they’re hard to style. They’re laced with challenge: How are you going to make me look cute? To integrate me into your wardrobe? To make it look like you should be wearing me? These questions force us to return to the sartorial strengths inherent to each of us; the fan of color can pump up the tonal volume, the small-print fiend can offer a subtle take on the trend, the maximalist can opt for a tropical-print-on-tropical-print look so seamless it might inspire a jaw or two to drop. Tropical print clothes want you to drop your style-based preconceptions and focus on who you are, what you want, how you like to have fun. They’re an invitation to get a little weird for a second—which is something we could all stand to do a little more of, sometimes. 1. Privacy Please x Revolve Lehunt Dress, $66 at Revolve The perfect night-out dress for your next vacation. 2. Fruity Tropical Print Frill Beach Romper, $23 at ASOS Fit for the pool, the beach or everyday wear. 3.
