12 tropical picks from the high street for an instant spring update

12 tropical picks from the high street for an instant spring update

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.

In summertime, we all want to let loose with our fashion choices, and channel some hazy heat and dreamy colour into our palettes. Tropical print, whether on some loose cotton culottes or a stylish boilersuit, works beautifully to inject some sunshine into your summer wardrobe. 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. With the news that Ireland may be receiving some much-needed heat this week, now is the time to invest in a suitable set of pieces to match. Then all you’ll need is that cocktail…
