Get ready…the tropical storm is upon us! The high street has been submerged with shades of greens, yellows and reds; patterns of palm trees, pineapples and parrots – What is there not to love about this trend? The tropical print gives a fresh alternative to the annual summer floral.
Wearing vibrant tropical prints can be quite intimidating, so for my tropical look I wanted to show how these prints can add a bit of fun to a simple everyday look. My essential tropical piece this summer is this gorgeous paradise print Lolita crop top from American Apparel, which caught my eye when I was doing some holiday shopping in San Francisco. Parrot prints are perfect for any summer looks you’re planning this season, given their multi-coloured feathers the print adds a beautiful dash of liveliness to any outfit. For this outfit I decided to pair it with these high waisted white HALLIE shorts with rip detailing from Topshop. Finally, a pair of shorts that don’t reveal your entire bum (it is not a good look EVEN if you do have a lovely derriere), however I would advise getting the size up from your regular size in these! For accessories I wore a pair of black flat sandals from Urban Outfitters and a chic black tassel duffle bag from ASOS.
Will you dare to dip your toes (or entire body) in this season’s tropical print?
