#VerySummerEdit: Hot Tropics

Prepare yourself for another RED-HOT summer edit. This time we’re looking to sun, sea and sandy destinations as fashion inspiration. Think colours that match your fruity cocktails and complement tanned skin. Statement pieces that are given a taste of the tropics with exotic florals and wild animal prints. Excited yet? You should be!

This colour-pop collection is perfect for hazy summer nights, whether you’re lucky enough to be spending it on holiday, or trying to create the atmosphere on your stay-cay. Floral frocks and floor-sweeping maxis channel your glamorous side. But if you’re looking for something a bit different, try a printed playsuit, or a bold and bright skirt.

Here at Very HQ we’ve been swooning over the selection, so let’s take a look at our top outfits!


South Jersey Floral Halter Nwck Maxi (also available in petite)Definitions Gold Trim Maxi Dress

Maximum Impact

First up is this vibrant pink maxi. As if the gorgeous hue wasn’t ‘wow’ enough, the 70s-inspired halter neck adds a luxurious finish with a gold twisted front. Long, loose and flowing, it’s the epitome of easy-elegance that’s understated, but undeniably chic. Achieve Disco-Diva style by teaming with extravagant gold hooped earrings (also mentioned in this edit!). Wear with co-ordinating heels and tong your tresses into perfectly undone curls.


AX Paris Tropical Floral Cut In Dress


Jessica Wright Antonia Floral Dress

Flower Power

Next are these cute cut-in dresses. Figure-fitted to flaunt your shape, they’re flourished with punchy flowers that pop in a cocktail of shades. The midi lengths are ladylike and classy, while the cut-in neckline reveals a flirty flash of your sun-kissed shoulders. Team with strappy heeled sandals in complementing colours: gold, black, or have fun with brights!


Definitions All Over Sequin Skirt, Myleene Klass Lace Pencil Skirt

Statement Skirt

If you love a bit of sparkle, then this blingin’ bodycon is embellished with Aztec patterns. Working the tribal trend, the glitzy black and silver sequins are given a cool contrast with gilded gold tones. Take a walk on the wild side by accessorising with leopard print platforms and a neon yellow clutch – you’ll be surprised just how much it pulls the look together!

Prefer to dress more daring? Then this laced midi updates a classic cut and length with a sunny yellow shade. It hugs your covetable curves for serious notice-me-now style, while the sheer scalloped hem reveals your knees. The prim and proper lace still maintains your sophisticated air, but you can hint at your bold side by clashing (yes we said clashing, trust us!) with leopard for a gorgeous jungle twist. Finish with a simple gold cuff and caged sandals. Now practice your best catwalk.


Jessica Wright Floral Playsuit

The Tropics Trend

A fun alternative to your dresses, this bright playsuit gives your looks a hint of Hawaii. Bursting with exotic flowers, the flared shorts flatter your shape, while a split back adds interest. Team with gladiator sandals and a fringed backpack for a boho finish.


Brushed Tri Circle Earrings, Tortoiseshell Embellished Necklace, Coleen Quilted Shoulder Bag, Carvela Leopard Platform Sandal

Accessorise with Attitude 

And finally, feast your eyes on the fierce accessories mentioned above. We love how the flashes of leopard and tortoiseshell bring safari style. But if you want to elevate your outfit, then the dazzling jewels, gold earrings and sky-high platforms will give your tropics a glamorous touch.
