Tropical Island

Summer is officially in and what better way to feel like you're in California soaking up the sun, sand and palm trees than wearing tropical prints? Not only does it save loads of money (from the airplane ticket), it also makes the perfect summer style statement. From Valentino and Tsumori Chisato on the A/W 2013 runway to style mavens and bloggers all around the world, these eclectic prints are everywhere this season and as the fashion world eats up this colourful and vibrant print, you should do too! Tropical prints can range from Rio de Janeiro-inspired palm prints to grass prints and flower prints and they are usually set against a muted background such as white, black or even pastels. Vibrant hues and lush prints would instantly transport you to style paradise, and here are some ideas for you to bring exotic to your wardrobe.
Summer Looks : Tropical Prints
Some things to look out for :
+ If you're new to the trend, dip into it by jazzing up a casual look with a printed statement piece.Then as you go along, muster some style courage and go full blown bright and bold with a top-to-toe tropical prints ensemble. 
+ Opt for togs with splashes of bright colours such as cherry red, aqua, tangerine, cobalt blue, violet and emerald green (Pantone's Colour of the Year! ). 
+ Pair them up with muted neutrals such as olive green, black, white and pastels. Add in metallic accents in the form of clutches and accessories and you're 10/10 ready for island life.
+ Scarves are another way to inject life into an everyday look. To do that, style it with a halter top and a pair of espadrilles for maximum effect.
+ Umbrella drinks are optional but highly recommended.
