You’d be hard pressed these days to walk down the high street and not see a tropical prints or two. And while back in the day they were confined to Hawaiian shirts and only worn on your holidays, nowadays tropical prints are not only worn on the beach, but out at clubs, at festivals, for weddings and other important events and even in the workplace. You can rest assured that this season’s tropical prints are not the garish multi-coloured nightmares of the late 80’s but tending towards taking three basic colours and using these to create a fusion of exotic flowers that are not over the top. And if you are still not convinced about wearing tropical prints, but still want to stand out from the crowds using this trend, why not not bag a bag with the print on it instead? We’ve picked out favourite tropical print dresses, bags, skirts and tops from ASOS; see what you think:
