What to Wear :: Tropical Themed Party

This past weekend three of our neighbors collaborated and threw a family friendly luau party. It was the perfect inspiration for my next “what to wear” post! Don’t we all love a good luau or tropical themed party in the summer!

Back in college we may have worn grass skirts and coconut bras, but today’s parties call for a bit more sophistication. Bright colors, floral prints, enamel jewelry, and straw bags are some of the signature pieces you’ll want to look for. Grab a lei and fruity drink served from a coconut cup and you’re all set to party!

  • A tropical print top with white pants or shorts lets you dress the part but stay comfortable at the same time.
  • Jumpsuits are making a comeback, and wearing one with a tropical print is a bold statement. If you’re fashion-forward enough to wear one like this you’ll be chic and festive.
  • Nothing lets you stay cool like a loose fitting, flowing dress – my personal fave.
  • Sometimes it’s fun to let the shoes do the talking. Tropical print shoes make a whimsical statement and will go with any solid colored outfit.

Find all the source information here, and below you can see how my husband and I got decked out. I think he outdid him self! He found the tropical shirt at Goodwill for just a few dollars, and he bought the hat for our neighborhood wine fest {my daughter said he looked like a hipster} last month. I wore this bold printed dress that I’ve only worn in Florida because it’s just so…bold! Big earrings, some floral mule wedges, and a flower in the hair completed my look.
