Mixing Business with Pleasure

If you’ve stopped by recently, you may have noticed that tropical prints are currently having a moment here on Sun Fun Fashion.  From tropical flowers and flamingos, to this gorgeous palm print you see below, this summer I’m gravitating towards prints a bit more “groundbreaking” than just florals.

Although the length and shape of this skirt make it adequately work appropriate, the tropical print can make it appear more like resort wear than work wear.  So how do you wear fun tropical prints to work while still showing everyone you mean business?  Well, all you have to do is mix a little bit of business with pleasure.

Pairing a tropical print with a more subdued work wardrobe staple, such as a solid blazer or cape balances out the bold print, making it work-ready. Another tip when wearing tropical prints to work (or anywhere, really) is to keep your accessories simple and to a minimum. You do not want to look like a tropical Christmas tree.

So don’t limit the use of your tropical printed garbs to poolside lounging and leisure.  When it comes to making the most of this fun and bold summer trend, mixing a little bit of business with pleasure can prove to be a recipe for fashion success!
