If you’re wondering how to inject island charm into your wardrobe, look no further than the trend of tropical prints, which is increasingly ruling the sidewalks. Away from the luxury and seclusion of a five-star resort, tropical inspired fashion can easily brighten your everyday style for either work or play. Whether you’re looking to usher summertime cheer into your work wardrobe or simply evoke colourful vibes for the evening hours, turn to the catwalks. We’ve curated a few wearable, versatile takes on tropical patterns for Summer 2017.
For a business-friendly approach to this prints trend, look to the Altuzarra runway for your sartorial inspiration. Try slipping into a fitted floral print skirt emblazoned with violet and green shades. Next, pair the vivid piece with a pale blue off-the-shoulder blouse, dangling earrings and ladylike high-heeled sandals.
With the jumpsuit trend also currently reigning supreme, this one-piece by Tibi fits the bill for the balmy summertime weather. We are liking the loose, boyish fit, along with the blousy sleeves and the splashy multicoloured print.
For a more high fashion approach to the trend, draw your sartorial cues from Peter Pilotto. These bellbottom trousers feature orange, blue and purple blooms, while the high waist and sash belt complete the ensemble. We’re also admiring the cropped pink halter top, which complements this gorgeous evening outfit.
