Hawaiian shirts, Bermuda shorts, straw bags… no, we’re not talking about your dad on holidays. Tropical print has taken over the high street, with explosions of florals, fruit and jungle motifs all set against the most vibrant of backdrops.

You have the option to go wild with an all-out ensemble á la Club Tropicana, or keep it muted with a single floral piece to accent your look.
