Trend Spotter : Tropical Prints

Tropical, baby!
Shirts (L-R): Michael Kors & River Island Shorts (L-R): Current/Elliott & Scotch and Soda  Scarf: Banana Republic  Shoes: Corso Como  Bag: Brahmin 


Tropical prints have been going around this Spring as fast as B.O. at Comic-Con. Yes, this is a true trend that is sweeping blogger nation and I am here to help you, fellow trench enthusiast, in understanding the true ways of the Hawaiian Shirt and how to rock Grandma's Summer Bag.

I like this trend. I've seen many bloggers pull it off quite well. Unlike many trends featuring crazy prints, like snakeskin or army camo, I'm much more inclined to buy a shirt or shorts with this print. I don't know why, maybe it just speaks to my want to look like a middle aged woman saturated in stereotypical Tommy Bahama menswear.

Just belt it and, girl, you'll be the talk of the Fashion Police!

Jokes aside, this is a trend I seriously love. It's bright and loud and, if you actually know what you're doing, can be styled in sophisticated ways. This trend is seasonal and highly trendy. The likelihood of this exact trend being in style next year around this time is slim. Maybe get a couple pieces from Zara and you'll be set for the rest of spring and summer.

  5. There's also print shirts with macarons at Uniqlo ( in collab with some designer..) I know it's not tropical print, but they're still quite cut, and maybe just a tad more versatile than these. :)
