    Like Miranda Priestly so aptly quips, "Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking." Maybe The Devil Wears Prada editrix is on to something: The rest of the country might go nuts over delicate pinks and baby blues, but come mid-March's 80-degree weather, bright florals begin to feel more like a wallpaper solution than something that'll inspire our closet choices.

    Yet, down south, springtime prints don't need to mean Easter bunnies and overly femme frocks. In fact, in the wake of the retro, '50s-inspired opulence brought on by the Mad Men craze, one formally cheesy floral really stands out: The palm print.

By taking tropical colors — teal, electric purple, fiery orange — the palm floral takes all the vibrance of the season and makes it way more fun. So here are 13 of the most sophisticated, eye-catching, and wardrobe revamping items to get you rocking this season's tropical floral print. Just remember: Keep palm and carry on!
