Living in northern California now, I’ve got a weird relationship to the seasons changing. Mostly because, well, they don’t really.
I think I’ll always feel wistful when they’re changing in other places. In May, I’m ready for swimsuit season. In August, I’m pretty sure I’ll be eighty years old and still feel the urge for a Target visit with my mom to pick up new pens, pencils, folders, and notebooks for the coming school year. Who’s with me?!
Whenever I start feeling change of season-induced nostalgia, I really double down on my wardrobe reflecting that feeling. If you’re feeling similarly inclined to welcome in summer with your style, I’ve got just the thing. Why not add an item in a super-duper warm weather style like palm leaf print style to your wardrobe? You already know about SG HQ’s love for prints and patterns, so it’s only natural to express yourself through this eternal summer style!

1. Onia, $195
SG Says: There’s no shortage of short-sleeve button-ups featuring palm prints (and yes, you’ll find a few below), but why not think outside the box with your palm prints this season? These swim trunks from Onia are just the thing to say, “Welcome summer!”

6. Asos, $52

SG Says: More shorts! What can I say? I can’t help myself.
SG Says: Okay. this is more of a Birds of Paradise situation than true palm leaves, but hey, we’re keeping things flora and fauna in general. The camp collar on this Allsaints style is what really puts it over the top for me.
SG Says: Palm prints don’t have to stay on your clothes. Consider accessories, like this summer-ready phone case, if you want to keep your pattern play off your wardrobe.
