Something which is so hot right now, is juicy colours and the patterns of this season’s tropical trend. It mixes bold designs (can be anything from floral to fruity), and presents them in a delicious way. Think amazon rainforest in a coral wedge, or a paradise adventure with flowers in your hair and a pineapple cocktail.
This look screams holiday escapism - if we can’t be sunning ourselves in a tropical paradise, then the next best thing is to wear one, right? Right.
This is a chance to really get involved in lots of seasonal trends, try a midi skirt in vibrant florals, with flower earrings and a zesty top, it’s 1950’s chic meets a watermelon margarita; elegant and tasty. I tried this out with a lovely midi from Mango, paired with a super high blond- wood heel from French Connection and a sheer yellow sleeveless blouse from H&M...tropical wear for a sunny lunch!
If you’re feeling brave you can fully immerse yourself in a matching 2 piece (think Jessie J in the wonderful river island 2 piece), with some equally vibrant accessories, or for a toned down everyday look, you could wear one statement piece and let that do the talking with more simple colours and accessories. Talking of accessories, I stumbled upon a pair of fantastic floral earrings from ASOS, they hang in a hoop and resemble a holiday flower- behind-the-ear look - pop a wave in your hair and you could be in hawaii. Hot.
Hints and Tips - you can also make your nails part of the story with a glam tropics inspired mani. Try zesty colours like orange, lemon or coral or cooler shades of leaf green or ocean blue, or if you really want to pimp them out, use a nail art pen ( I love the ones by model’s own), to draw out a palm tree over a zingy background. It will make you wish you were there!
