BOLD SUMMER PRINTS INSPIRE A  FASHION OASIS

This time of year, our summer vacation fantasies include thoughts of white sand beaches, mai tais, and seaside bungalows. On our trip to the beach house, we make sure to bring our Aloha print shirts and tropical linen cover-ups.

This summer, however, our style is influenced by an artisan market in Marrakech where embellished textiles, spice-colored fabrics, and handmade jewelry impact the local fashion scene. Oil-dyed tees, jacquard printed trousers, and brocade tops bring this desert-wanderer style to life. To get the look at home this season, use pops of tropical prints and vibrant colors to create a “tropical desert oasis” ensemble more suitable for the Florida summer. Let the local surrounding tropical landscape bring the colorful backdrop to your cool and effortless nomadic style.
