This beautiful print can be found across the gendered clothing sections, creating a quiet subversion that no one expects or really notices.
Often gorgeous and luxe, floral prints have a tendency to find their way into most plus-size women and femme’s closets in one way or another. From traditionally “womanly” oversized peony prints in Japanese-inspired florals to the hard-femme aesthetic of the dark floral rose prints that have popped up all over this year, few florals read as being accessible to non-feminine genders — save for the application in a “Hawaiian” shirt or swim trunks here and there.
Some would think that there isn’t anything particularly revolutionary about a floral print. That person has not yet encountered floral’s gender-neutral sibling, the palm print.
Lush green leaves and palm fronds embolden everything from flowing dresses to simple button-up shirts and swim suits this season. Sometimes the primary foil to bright tropical flowers but always beautiful on their own, these palm prints provide a beautiful alternative to the over-abundance of traditional florals. This beautiful print can be found across the gendered clothing sections, creating a quiet subversion that no one expects or really notices.
A nod to warmer climates, these beautiful botanical prints look great on everyone and can really change the vibe of traditionally-feminine pieces of clothing. If you need something that screams summer, evokes of nature vibes, and is on-trend — look no further than palm prints.
