Sometimes we all just need to get away. If you’re ready to swing into summer, the tropical print is a great way to embrace the oncoming heatwave. However, this year, tropical print has made its way to the streets of non-tropical places. With Rita Ora wowing the crowd in her floral Adidas collab looks, Prada’s Menswear Collection (on both men AND women), Mary Katrantzou’s Resort Collection, and Hermés’s Ready To Wear Collection, the bright hues and bursting blossoms make dressing up a breeze. Replacing the statement necklace or the oversized scarf, these crazy prints will do all the embellishment work for you. Floral prints are nothing new, and we saw it coming back in 2011. Now that the trend has hit the shelves of mainstream retailers, we thought it's time to note how the rock star bloggers style it.
Need something more than just coffee to get your through the week? Although tropical may trigger thoughts of relaxation and vacation, they are a fun way to spice up your work look. Just pop on some sensible shoes and you’re ready to rumble.
Cool & Casual:
Get the the Hawaiian state of mind and keep things casual with a breezy botanical blouse or skirt. You can hang loose and keep things simple without being boring. Bright botanical prints with your favorite jeans or t-shirt can help you stay comfy without looking sloppy.
Botanicals at brunch can be bunches of fun. You can achieve an effortless Sunday look with the help of some tropical themed pieces. Paired with your favorite chambray shirt or comfy boots, it is sure to be a winning combination.
Fun & Funky:
Tropical prints, AKA the fun florals, are great addition to funky looks. Mix and match your favorite statement pieces with a tropical print for that extra pop of color or pattern. The Hawaiian vibes will definitely add some vibrancy to your happy hour this week.
