Tropical locales continue to top the lists of favored travel destinations.Their enduring popularity makes tropical prints on apparel and accessories a perennial favorite for consumers. “Tropical prints are functional, fun, festive and extremely popular,”says Taraynn Lloyd, director of marketing at Edwards Garment Co.(asi/51752). Edwards’ camp shirts are in high demand for uniforms at restaurants, resorts, theme parks, museums and even medical offices, because “the vibrant colors attract attention and quickly identify the employee to the guest,”says Lloyd. Demand grows in winter too with events taking place in tropical locales.
