Summer may be ending, but fruit prints aren't going out of season anytime soon. Introducing the tropical print, the so-right-now pattern that's no longer reserved for holidays.
This season's must-have print makes an appearance on everything from feminine blouses to flirty dresses and edgy pumps. And, not only will this look keep you feeling tropical even when you're not on vacation, but it's a totally unexpected way to stand out anywhere. So, if you're ready to feel the heat this season, here are two style tips for the tomboy and feminine girl.
The Tomboy style: You may think that bustiers and tomboys don't mix, but the piece looks surprisingly cool layered over a loose-fit T-shirt and slouchy pants. This inspiration is quite possibly one of the most sophisticated looks for tomboys. You can even pair a silk, button-up blouse and heart shaped crop top in a vibrant tropical print for a look that screams edgy and chic. Step into cropped cigarette pants and printed booties for a mismatched style that's subtle enough for the office but also totally fashionable for a party. Just accent with a bold, red lip and prepare for an onslaught of compliments.
The Feminine style: Like a good fruit salad, your outfit needs variety. Work to seamlessly fuse two different patterns and colors into an eclectic wardrobe. In this style, a vivid tropical printed blouse is layered over a sparkly skirt in a similar print for a glamorous appearance. Finish the stylish getup with a pair of killer stilettos mismatched studs and a graphic clutch. A word of advice, make sure when you mix and match your colors, genres, and flora that all are appropriate and modish. If the outfit comes in a pre-matched set, even better, the work's done.
