Trend of the week: Totally tropical


If a staycation is as far as you’ll get this summer, then bring the heat with lush tropical prints.

From frangipani blooms to island-inspired palm leaves, think languid days by the water with a colourful cocktail.


* DOUBLE UP: Print layering is still trending. Just make it easier on the eye by keeping with the same colour family.

* KEEP IT LOOSE: Relaxed silhouettes (fluid jackets, wide leg trousers) make crop tops infinitely more wearable and oh-so-elegant.

* FANCY DRESS: Weave fresh flowers into a head garland for a special occasion or scrape hair back into a low ponytail with a singular lily placed above the ear.

* BE PLAYFUL: We love the pineapple clutch bag from our new favourite online heroes at Seriously fun!
