Pardon my print : Tropical

Just to hang onto summer for a little bit longer I thought I would do this weeks print post on Tropical Punch.  Let's make one thing clear though I am not saying that those tacky Hawiian shirts have become cool.  Yes they fit this tropical print theme however let's go deeper into the jungle and get a little more trendy people!!  I think this print is a little more difficult to do right just because there is that fine line between a modern and trendy tropical print and one that is all wrong and straight up tasteless.  So how will you know if you've picked right?  Well let's start off with one obvious rule that is very simple to follow: stay away from Hawaiian flowers.  The next tip I would have is keeping in mind current colours and choosing accordingly.  Bright colours have been fun this season so just make sure the overall piece uses colours that complement each other well.  My final tip would be to mix your prints.  One trend that I really really love is mixing prints with prints.  When done right it can look FAB-U-LOUS!  So in my opinion pairing a tribal clutch with your tropical outfit would look amazing!  Enjoy below some tropical picks.  I love the casual flamingo tee but I'm drooling most over the Mango skirt!!
