Summer is definitely here in Santa Monica, California, which means you can dress like the Chiquita Banana lady and get away with it. Or you can tone down the tropical a bit and just play with color and patterns in more measured ways. Take these eye-popping palazzo pants in geometric print, for example. I was a late adopter but I have to admit that these are really fun and extremely comfortable since they are made of lightweight, flowing cotton and tie with a tassel drawstring. Pair them with classic black or white to keep the look from becoming overwhelming, and maybe some bold accessories for something that’s a little bit tropical and super easy to wear.
