To wear a tropical print, you don’t need to fly off to an island (though it is highly encouraged) but just need to pair up the prints sensibly to give you and the onlookers a beach vibe. Tropical prints like florals, foliage, palm trees, fruits & Hawaiian prints have stepped into the lookbook this season and here are some different ways in which you can sail through summer in this trend.
Top it off
A button down half sleeved shirt in tropical prints like leaves or a crop top in bright florals will help you catch the summer vibe even before leaving your house. Pair it up with denim cut-off shorts, flip flops and a straw hat for a day at the beach or accesorize your outfit with a statement necklace for a girls day out. You can also sport a Hawaiian printed shirt unbuttoned with a tank top inside & culottes for a more playful look. Floral printed sneakers give you happy feet to flaunt with this tropical look!
Jump to it
If you are really into this print then go all out and try it on a jumpsuit. Pick a tropical print in bright hues and tone it down with accessories like a belt, shoulder bag and flat sandals in neutral shades. You can rock this look for a lunch date with your bestie or a day at the local flea market. Tropical printed playsuits with colourful lace ups is a must have item on your vacation checklist.
Keep ’em short
Even if you are not on a holiday, who said you can’t dress like it! Just pick a pair of hibiscus printed shorts, tuck in a fun quotes print t-shirt or pair it up with a crop top & platform sliders, and you have an easy weekend outfit just like that! You can also pair a chambray shirt with a tropical-inspired pleated skirt with a mini sling and pop coloured pumps for a fun and flirty date night look.
Dress it up
You can go for the same tropical print like palm trees or leafy prints from head to toe like a dress- for a beach outing or casual evening style (the sky is the limit). You can pile on tons of accesories or keep the look minimal with neutral hued bags & shoes. You can also go for a skater dress with wedges for a date or a bodycon for a girls’ night out with killer heels. Floral printed maxis with a statement neckpiece and sandals make a perfect look for a Sunday brunch.
Sporting tropical prints make you ooze chicness and the outbursts of colours give it a very holiday vibe that serves as an eye candy among the city crowd. You might just be looking like a walking billboard of the Bahamas, but that’s nothing less than awesome. So look tropical this summer and turn heads wherever you go!
