Florals for spring might not be groundbreaking. But there’s a reason people are so attracted to plant-lady prints. Nature makes people happier—so does exercise. Bringing a bit of the great outdoors into the gym or studio—even if only on your leggings—might be just the mood boost you need to power through your workout. And for those in to pattern play, leafy motifs are the next wave of cool.

“Tropical prints are a huge summer trend and offer a fresh alternative to traditional florals, which we have previously seen in activewear,” says Susan Marasco, fashion director at Bloomingdale’s, citing Gucci, Michael Kors, and Fenty x Puma by Rihanna as just a few brands that embraced greenery on their SS18 runways. “Botanical patterns and palm leaves are unexpected—punchier colors make your workout gear look fresh.”

With your activewear, don’t be a shrinking violet. Instead, opt for bold palm leaves or hibiscus flowers.

With your activewear, don’t be a shrinking violet. Instead, opt for bold palm leaves or hibiscus flowers via a matching set or spruce up black leggings with a tropical cropped sports bra. The trend translates to everyday attire, too. “Styling a tropic-print tee with a denim mini skirt and slides creates an elevated, casual weekend look,” Marasco suggests. Get in on the garden party with these plant-based prints.

Summer’s still weeks away, but you can start wearing warm-weather looks now by layering them with cool transitional pieces like anorak jackets and trench coats
