Tropical Dresses & More!

While you might not have been able to get away for a Bahama vacation since 2020, that doesn’t mean you can’t throw on a tropical outfit to make you feel like you’re sitting on a distant beach on a remote island! If you’re ready to be inspired by summer fashion, check out our favorite tropical summer outfits!

1. Maxi Dresses

What’s a summer vacation without a floral tropical summer dress? We love maxi dresses for an exotic vacation-inspired outfit because they’re so versatile. Throw on a pair of slip-on sneakers, and you’re ready to explore a new city, or put on a pair of heels and your favorite jewelry to transform any tropical dress into a nighttime look!

To keep with the tropics theme, don’t just shop for any floral dress. You should explore prints with big palm leaves, pineapples, bananas, birds of paradise flowers, and begonias.

2. Midi Dresses

If you don’t want to spend the summer in a dress that covers you down to your ankles, consider a tropical midi dress for summer! While you can still go for beautiful tropical prints, you can also choose to wear gem-toned pieces that exude the same vacation vibe. Bright coral, turquoise, and yellow hues are perfect for a trip to the Maldives, Bora Bora, Hawaii, or the Caribbean. Where will your midi dress take you this summer?

3. Shorts & Crops

Want to keep it fun and sporty? Ditch the tropical summer dress and opt for a cropped top and some shorts. You have a lot of versatility here with different cuts, colors, and styles. If you’re feeling a little more fashion-forward, go for a sleek, tailored, high-waisted short and ruffled peasant blouse. Feeling a little more utilitarian? Throw on your favorite distressed denim and a casual tee in a must-have print!

If you’re trying to really cultivate that tropical feeling, we suggest you top off your outfit with a wide-brim sun hat or Panama hat made of toquilla straw.

3. Cute Two-Piece Sets

One of the easiest ways to create an effortlessly fashion-forward outfit is with a set. These pre-created top and bottom combinations allow you to just throw something on and run out the door without worrying about coordinating. If you want something similar to a tropical summer dress as a two-piece, you can find tons of maxi skirts paired with matching tops. You can also find sporty athleisure wear with matching jogger and shirt sets in bright colors!
