Hot Tropical

The shops may have started to stock their Autumn/Winter collections already, but most of us are just beginning to enjoy the summer!

If you want a fashion trend that sums up summer it has to be TROPICAL. We’ve seen designers such as Issa with fantastic tropical prints on the catwalk, and celebs like Katy Perry love it too – she was recently seen wearing a green dress with pink palm trees on.

The tropical trend it easy to achieve, there are so many prints out there that give you the perfect tropical look.

Go for dresses– maxi or short, tops and jackets, playsuits, shoes and accessories, whatever you like the best – has it all!

The colours you want to go for should be cocktail, sunset and jungle inspired – so go for bright and bold colours like greens, reds, purples, yellows and oranges.

Instead of wearing busy and small floral patterned prints, go for large bright flowers and bold exotic looking leaves.

Look for prints that have anything tropical on – palm trees, exotic fruit and birds are definately big – parrots, toucans and flamingoes all take centre stage.

Accessorise with tropical inspired jewellery and a big bright flower in your hair.

Now you have the tropical look – all you need is the cocktail!
