Now we know that tropical prints are nothing brand new. They’ve been one of our hero holiday prints for years yet we still get excited whenever we see a glimpse of a palm tree motif tee or Hawaiian floral dress hanging up across the shop floor. This summer however the classic coco-loco trend has been given a new sophisticated spin. You can find graphic palm leaf patterns splashed across tailored jumpsuits at H&M, Botanical florals adorning boxy tees at Monsoon and Hawaiian linen shorts at Mango.
Heading off on holiday? Nothing says vacay vibes quite like an exotic aloha swimsuit or bikini and you can find plenty of them at New Look, ASOS and Topshop this year. If you’ve decided to staycation this summer, don’t panic you can still join club Tropicana; a silky paradise printed bomber or cover-up is perfect for adding a touch of sunshine to your look even on those unpredictable drizzly days. Hurrah!
