5 OF THE BEST TROPICAL PRINTS
By Eleanor Dunne, 9 April 2019
Nothing says, 'Summer, come at me', quite like a tropical print. Part of the SS19 California trend (which includes tie-dye and surf vibes) as seen at labels like R13, Etro and Calvin Klein, island-ready motifs are a surefire way to bring some sunshine to your look. Even if the weather's not quite there yet... So, here are five of the best pieces dropping on ASOS to give us that totally tropical taste for the new season.
First up, we have this burnt orange co-ord that's ideal as a duo for festival season. Or, if you want to work some tropical prints into your transitional look, the jacket would work with jeans or a midi skirt. Plus, the shorts will come in handy when vacation planning's in session. How can you say no?
No woman is an island but she can certainly rock an island print from time to time. Obviously, this totally tropical boiler suit is ideal for your next vaycay, but why not think outside the box and add it to your day-to-day lineup? Make it work for cooler weather by layering a lightweight roll-neck underneath and adding ankle boots.
We’ve seen the bias skirt in hundreds of different iterations, but this one is in the running to be one of our faves. Tropical print? Check. Neon shades? Yep. Floaty silhouette? You got it. The only question now is whether to wear it with trainers or neon heels...
This cut-out frock is born to be worn for cocktails by the pool at a super sunny destination, paired with the season’s natural accessories. Or, when the warmer weather hits your hometown, it's the perfect going out-out look for a balmy staycation night. Who needs a holiday anyway?
OK, this might be a bit out of left field, but how about swapping your standard black office trousers for these funky tropical-print ones? The rest of the outfit just needs to be pared back a little – a white shirt and loafers should do it. Go on, we dare you...
