Jemima Kirke Wears Tropical Print Dress, So Maybe The Print Isn't Just For Your Dad's Vacation Wardrobe

With summer comes a variety of trends, from perfect sundresses to adorable crop tops. Everyone's favorite free-spirited Girls actress showed us how to do a typically cheesy print the right way — Jemima Kirke wore a tropical print dress and it somehow totally worked.

Lena Dunham snapped a pic of Kirke and another friend, showing the IRL Jessa rocking a red and white tropical print dress that definitely does not give you flashbacks to what your dad wore on every family vacation since you were a little kid. That's quite an achievement. The sleeveless dress is slightly sheer with a tie at the waist to give a flattering silhouette, perfect for summer. Paired with some round-framed glasses and a cool NYC brick wall as the background, Kirke looked beyond cool in a typically cheesy print.

Kirke is known for rocking daring and body positive looks (I'm personally still not over her two-piece ensemble from the CFDAs), and she's proven time and time again that red is definitely her color. And if pulling off the tropical print doesn’t prove she’s a style inspiration, I don’t know what will. Check out the Instagram below to see that Hawaiian print can totally be kind of awesome.

And it's not just Kirke who can totally rock some tropical vibes this summer. Test out some of these floral-and-palm tree patterns and add a bit of summer fun to your wardrobe.
