Totally Tropical: 10 Reasons To Invest In The Summer Print Trend

Thinking of wearing a print this summer? You'd better make it a tropical one because pineapples, leafy greens and exotic-inspired patterned are all back in a big way.

From Kim Kardashian, who loves to paint the town red in a hot tropics-inspired number, to Oscar-winning star Lupita Nyong'o, who wore a pineapple-printed dress when she received the 2014 Maui Film Festival Rainmaker award, our favourite stylish stars have all been seen wearing some form of jungle-inspired look this year - and now's the perfect time to embrace it.


The best thing about this trend? It's versatile. You can go bold with a head-to-toe patterned outfit like Rihanna or try adding just one statement piece to keep things casual like Jessica Alba.

It's also the perfect outfit option for a day at the beach (New Look has some great printed bikini and swimsuit styles this season.)

Ultimately though, embracing this look is all about confidence. Channel your inner Cara Delevingne and strut your pineapple-patterned joggers down the high-street. (It does help if the sun is shining.)

And if you're not ready to double-up your prints with a matching jacket and trousers in true Solange Knowles fashion? Wear your palm-tree leaf with a black leather jacket for an effortless, easy-to-wear anywhere look.
