Despite often being thought of as tacky or something only tourists wear, tropical prints have made a glam comeback this year. and is one you can really have fun with. The catwalk was in full bloom with floral prints this season and here at iKrush, we have the perfect affordable high street take on the trend with this Evila Tropical Halter Dress. A holiday favourite, this dress is perfect for wearing at the poolside and also once you are home, to hold onto a bit of that holiday feeling. For a dressed up look, wear with wedges such as our Dory Peeptoe Cork Wedges and add some statement jewellery. However, you shouldn’t wear any necklaces with this outfit to draw attention to the halter neck detailing.
If you’re not fan of halternecks, our Abriana and Abrielle Bodycon Tropical Dresses are the perfect items for you.
So how do you pull off this chic trend? Mixing two different types of print can look stylish but it is tricky to pull off. Take a leaf out of Selena Gomez’s book by wearing the trend with a block colour for a really flattering look. Katy Perry is also a huge fan of the trend. She chose to wear a tropical print crop top and pencil combo and this outfit really shows off her fabulous figure! Like Katy, wearing a matching print on the top and bottom can be a great look as showing some midriff will break up the print.
This season has revealed that the tropical print can be worn anywhere and is not just restricted to the beach. Without a doubt, this easy, breezy print has us in the mood to stay in warmer tropics!
