Brilliant tropical prints took center stage on the runways at Stella McCartney, Peter Pilotto, and Salvatore Ferragamo, and we've been looking for ways to incorporate these bold prints into our own wardrobe. Jimmy Choo created gorgeous photo print clutches this season, which inspired us to make our own. In today's DIY, we're showing you how to give a basic clutch a makeover with a beautiful print of your choice. On Allison McNamara: Motel top, Forever 21 necklace.
Forget traditional Hawaiian-printed muumuus and silly parrot-themed button-up blouses: these tropical print wares are not only covetable — they'll also instantly inject your closet with a Summer-ready feel. While it's no secret we love a great floral pattern, we're currently crushing on a bolder, brighter tropical iteration of the trend. And the best part? You can incorporate the palm-tree-infused, hibiscus-filled look into every occasion. Featured on both a laid-back tie-front cropped top showcasing a Caribbean-cool scene and a flirty floral minidress, these fun prints with "vacation-bound" written all over them. Here are 10 reasons you'll want to get in on the season's obsession — click through to see them all.
Spring's easy, breezy tropical print trend certainly has us in the mood to take a beach getaway. We got a taste of the island life from designers like Altuzarra, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Stella McCartney to name a few, and were thrilled to see brands like ASOS and Topshop giving their own take on the trend (and being a bit kinder to our wallets). This look definitely has Hawaiian roots, but also calls to mind far off beach excursions like Tahiti, Fiji, and Bali — giving us even more motivation to take a much-needed vacation. These flowers might be bold, but the styling tips are easy; simply pair printed trousers or blazers with minimal accompaniments for a chic and modern take on the trend. Or, don a vivid patterned dress with strappy heels for a standout evening ensemble. Click below now to shop our favorite palm-tree prints, vibrant floral motifs and surf-inspired silhouettes.
