One of the biggest trends of this season is tropical print everything. A fun, summery spin on classic floral (also huge right now), tropical print has been everywhere from the runway to Forever 21. If you can get past your dad’s old Hawaiian shirts and cheesy beach motel decor from the 90s, this will be your favorite fad of the summer. Something about it just makes me want to lay in a hammock on an island somewhere and sip a piña colada out of a coconut. Can’t you just hear the steel drums? Just me? K.
Ready to dive in to this trend like it’s the infinity pool at your Caribbean resort? Try it with a statement piece like a romper, skirt, or high-waisted pants. If you’re a little more hesitant, test it out with accessories first, such as jewelry, shoes, or your iPhone case. Another way to ease into the island-inspired trend is to rock a pineapple print. Pineapples are all over the place this summer and I’m not mad about it. Try this fruity fad with some of the pieces pictured above, such as the adorable clutch or fun crop top.
So let’s pretend that back-to-school commercials aren’t already on and rock this warm-weather trend until the leaves change. Except leaves don’t really change in Charleston, awk.
