Spending your days lounging around on a tropical island is obviously ideal. However if this is not your life (woe be us, cause it ain't mine either), try instead the very cool tropical-esque print that has so eloquently reared it's head during the past few seasons. Stella McCartney did it way back in Summer 2011 with her Resort 2012 collection, knocking out some very grown up prints. Then Joseph Altuzarra followed that up with some bright popping prints in everything from blazers to pants, skirts and dresses mixed back with black and whites in his Spring 2012 collection. And Riccardo Tisci's Resort 2012 collection for Givenchy was also rocking some super fine prints.
Now these aren't your typical hawaiian shirt prints, you know those ones that make your eyes hurt? Nope, I'm talking seriously cool colours, and ever cooler cuts.With summer kicking up a notch in Aussie, it's the perfect time to start rocking some tropical inspired threads. And if you're lucky enough to actually be swanning about on some sandy beach, cocktail in hand, I should expect you'll be rocking some of these fine pieces.
And now for your viewing pleasure.......
Let's start with the pants, Michael Kors has smashed the tropical print. These skinnies and the long sleeved pink and black number also featured here are such brilliant interpretations of the tropical print.
ASOS has these tropical printed platforms on sale right now!
This printed tunic from Forever New has a cheeky little cut out on the back, very cool, both literally and figuratively. The corset is by Ally, and is a ridiculous bargain. The scarf is by Mango, and is a very easy and subtle way to bring the tropics to you. The dress of course is Michael Kors, the singlet is Juicy Couture and the shorts are by Forever New.
Hope you enjoyed out little trip!
