Elegant mother of pearl bracelets and sea turtle pendants are a perfect complement to a colorful outfit. Clean designs like silver bangles and necklaces allow gems to shine. Details like hibiscus, turtle and fish shaped settings are both fun and good for any occasion.

9. Halter dress

Halter dress

Halters are wildly flattering on every body type. And if you’re not crazy about vibrant floral designs, check out the palm leaf prints hitting the streets. These range from a muted combination of greens, blacks and grays, and extend to every color in the rainbow. Plain nude or black shoes keep the focus on the dress.

8. Sandy legs

Sandy legs

Why bother replenishing your leggings supply when sand can keep you just as warm, provided you can disregard the mess. Simply dip your bare legs in water and make haste because if it’s chilly enough to wear leggings then odds are the water is also quite cold. Now roll around in the sand. Really rub it into legs. Disclaimer: Sand leggings don’t last long.

7. Floral Capri pants

Floral Capri pants

With the exception of wearing a swimsuit, few garments have the carefree feel of lightweight Capri pants. Bold floral prints take you right back to cliff walks by the sea. Pair with a solid top so the overall look doesn’t get too busy.

6. Palm tree sweaters

Palm tree sweaters

This warm sweater is made for daydreamers with wanderlust. There’s no reason why you can’t feel snug and look like a breath of fresh air at the same time. The scoop neck and relaxed structure are in keeping with the easy comfort of the most versatile tropical fashion looks. Plus, it’s a nice change from snowflake and reindeer patterns.

5. Espadrilles


How we love these casual shoes where comfy canvas meets a rubber or rope-like sole. Espadrilles actually originated in the Pyrenees, but these modern, luau-like prints beg to be worn with a gauzy maxi dress and floppy hat. They’re like a party on your feet.

4. Citrus colors

Citrus colors

One of the first things that come to mind when you think about the islands is the abundance of fresh fruits within reach, hanging from a nearby tree. Simple white tops and dresses with a bright tropical print around the neckline will lift your mood on any day. Accent it with a slim pink belt and orange purse. Paint your nails grapefruit pink to complete the look.

3. Printed skirts

The printed A-line skirt is a classic choice on a casual day, especially when that print nods to textures and forms found only in the rainforest. Combining flattering forms with breezy palm leaf designs is what tropical fashion looks are all about.

2. Graphic tees

Let the little ones tell it like it is in beach wear like a graphic tee shirt featuring Jimmy Buffet graphics, a hammock or parakeets. It may be mid-winter with gray skies and frost on the ground outside, but inside life is as sunny and fruitful as ever. These feel good clothes go well macadamia nuts and a bowl of pineapple slices.
