Island girl

Nothing screams carefree summer days quite like a tropical print. This season, these prints are taking the fashion world by storm – a tropical storm! (See what we did there?) 

We show you how to get the most out of the island girl trend.

Maximalism meets minimalism 

The tropical print is perfect for merging maximalism and minimalism. Maximalism refers to something being over the top – ‘more is more’ – while minimalism refers to the more classic ‘less is more’ approach. Pair a tropical-print kimono or pants with a solid basic in a neutral colour, like denim shorts or khaki cargo pants, and you’ve perfectly balances out the colourful print.

Picking the perfect tropical print 

Shopping for a printed item is so much fun! Prints are a great way to incorporate quirky and girly details into your wardrobe. Look for a print where the dominant colours complement your skin tone. People with warm skin tones should opt for colours with a warm undertone and vice versa. For example, if you have a warm skin tone mustard yellow will look amazing on you, whereas if you have a cool skin tone a lemon yellow will flatter you.

Basically, just have fun with it! Choose tropical prints that you adore, from palm trees to island flowers – the holiday season is the time to wear your most festive prints.
