One of the most disappointing realizations of adulthood is that summer vacation doesn’t exactly apply to full-time jobs… #adulting, am I right? That being said, if you’ve strategically hoarded your vacation days in order to get away for a week this summer, it’s time to tackle the best part of pre-vacation preparation: packing!
OK, OK, that might be a bit of a controversial statement. Does anyone really love packing? You might not… yet. But that’s only because you haven’t perfected the art of creating a personalized “vacation capsule collection” of your very own. Thankfully, the latest Veronica M releases make that super easy to do. Trust me, by the end of this list, you’ll be dying to start putting together your ideal vacation outfits and packing them away for sunnier days.
Ahead, all the tropical prints that were practically made for a tropical vacation — whether you’re actually heading to Hawaii or just *pretending* to by sipping on a flower-garnished cocktail while floating in your backyard pool.
The Classic Tropical Print
When it comes to tropical prints, there’s nothing more classic than an oversized palm leaf. We’ve taken that vacation wardrobe staple and given it a modern twist in our Paradise print. It’s an overlapping mix of green, blue, white, and orange palm leaves set against a black backdrop. These pieces work for casual beach days (try the Paradise Drop Waist Tank Dress as a cover-up) and waterfront dinners (with the Paradise Wrap Maxi Dress).
The Bright, Bold Tropical Print
If you’re the kind who likes to make a style statement, look no further than our brand-new Stevie print. It’s the ultimate eye-catching floral for vacation. Think: pink, red, and blue tropical leaves that pop against all-back fabric. Whatever kind of vacation you’re going on — a casual weekend getaway or a five-star resort — the Stevie print is a must. The Stevie Romper is the perfect throw-on-and-go piece to wear over a bikini, the Stevie Wrap Maxi Skirt looks great with a plain tee shirt, and the Stevie Wrap Maxi Dress feels right at home at a fancy restaurant. (Because you have to splurge while you’re on vaca, right?)
The Tropical Floral Print
For those who are more partial to flowers than leaves, our freshly released Hibiscus print is for you. It features beautiful blue and orange hibiscus blooms, for a tropical style that’s not overly traditional. Which is precisely why the Hibiscus Dropwaist Dress deserves a spot in your carry-on.
The Tropical Accessories
The ideal island-themed ensemble doesn’t stop at clothing — Veronica M even has vacation-worthy accessories on lock. Embellish your ears with tropical florals by clasping on our Black and White Stripe Statement Earrings or white Flower Statement Earrings. Shells are a big trend for summer, too, which you can add to any outfit with the Beaded Teal Necklace with Cowrie Shells or the Cowrie Shell Braided Necklace.
