The weather has been pretty tropical of late, agreed? Bright sunshine,bizarre winds, himidity and tropical downpours. So, it’s just as well there is a totally tropical trend in fashion this summer as well!
Think bright pink flamingos, hibiscus flowers, palm prints, bold colours, pineapples and more – that’s the totally tropical trend right there!
So, this week’s weekly wishlist is just that – our lovely totally tropical wishlist – all you need to fit in with our weirdly tropical summer weather!
Let’s start with flamingos. Who doesn’t love a pink flamingo. It’s not a totally tropical trend without flamingos, is it? So, how in love are we with H&M + t-shirt (£12.99) with the big, sparkly, shimmery sequin flamingo? Maybe don’t carry the fab Floozie by FrostFrench @ Debenhams flamingo clutch (£20) at the same time, though. Or even the cute flamingo and palm tree print Floozie clutch (£20).
Flamingos are for everyone, and guys, you can wear these gorgeous pink birds on your feet thanks to these fab VANS @ Schuh (£50).
Palm trees are perfectly evocative of tropical islands. If you can’t get to a tropical island, then wear them round your neck thanks to this cute palm tree necklace at JOY (£10).
Tropical prints don’t need to be bold and bright of course. Over at GAP, youcan do tropical in black, white or grey. Crop trousers with a tropical leaf print are perfect for summer evenings (£14.99, were £29.95), and GAP’s canvas bag is a great summer beach accessory (£14.99, was £24.95).
Hibiscus flowers are bright and beautiful. Find them on swimshorts for guys (£12) at BHS, and bright and bold on a pretty dress (£55) at JOY.
BHS’s tropical scene vest (£14) is just perfect for summer days over denim shorts, in the heat of the city.
Finally, a tropical beach demands a totally tropical trend bikini – H&M’s bright bold pink side-tie bottoms (£7.99) and push-up bikini top (£12.99) will see you stand out on any beach. And New Look’s retro style high waisted bikini bottoms in a soft tropical print (£11.99), go perfectly with a quirky flounce style top (£14.99).
Totally tropical trend lover now, yeah?
