Hibiscus flowers, palm leaves and more tassels than we can count: yep, the tropical trend is taking over again this summer, giving our getaway ‘fits an extra hit of exotic. So whether you’re rocking Hawaiian prints from head to toe, or styling it a little more subtle, here are five ways to go all-out tropical for your next summer vacay.
1. The Bikinis
Life’s better in a bikini – and even more so when it comes with a tropical twist. From hibiscus prints and clashing neon colours to mini-yet-mega embroideries, there are endless ways to get exotic with your swimwear selection this summer. Add some statement tassels and you’re more than good.
2. The Swimsuit
Swimsuits = the so-SS18 way to get in on the tropical trend. Choose a crush-worthy coral number that’ll show off your golden glow like woah, making its print pop with bright, bold jewels that were designed with sunny destinations in mind.
3. The Beach Cover-Ups
Going straight from the beach to cocktails with the crew? Ditch the denim shorts and keep your tropi-cool with a cute cover-up that won’t feel out of place in paradise – we’re talking crisp cotton shirt dresses, kaftans and sun dresses with lush prints and all the embroideries.
4. The Maxi Dress
If you’ve been dreaming about reprising your role as actual real-life beach goddess ever since, well, last summer, then make some room for this mega maxi. Embroidered with hot-pink petals, this white-hot hun is your one-way ticket to becoming queen of the tropics – crown totes optional.
5. The Accessories
Looking for a more low-key way into the tropical trend? Start with all-white styling and add on the accessories to give your get-up extra energy – think pom-pom necklaces, pineapple earrings (omg) and embellished espadrilles to wear on all your adventures.
