Palm trees, tigers, pineapples, and even avocados will rock your outfits in 2017. It is already “summer” in Ibiza, and colourful and tropical prints become a must-have become fashionistas. This trend is one of our favourite ones because it transports us directly to sunny paradises with palm trees, flowers and wild animals.
Have you been shopping in Zara lately? (So did we!!!) Then you probably have spotted one of the trendiest prints of 2017: the wild one. What do we mean by wild print? All sort of wild animal, jungle and tropical motives printed in tees, dresses, trousers and accessories.
Although this trend is not new at all (the tropical fever started in 2016), this season we will see an authentic explosion of colours and original motives. Probably you have heard all you life the said “less is more”. Well, forget it. (not forever, bur just for now), because fashion is about maximalism, vibrant colours and outstanding motives right now!
Our first crash with the tropical trend arised with the Versace for H&M collection in 2011. Following this same essence, the 2017 designer collections that are making us dream are the Furla Metropolis Jungle handbags line and the Dolce&Gabbana Tropical City collection. This second one is so crazy that it even includes a pair of shoes which heel has the shape of a pineapple!
You would like to try out this trend but don´t know how? That´s what experts are for! We provide you with three different outfits which include slight touches of this tropical trend!
Look 1: You want to rock this trend during an evening or night event? Piece of cake! Combine tropical pieces with strong dark colours such as red or black! Add a pair of high heels and a sophisticated pair of earrings and the outcome will be just perfect!
Look 2: Looking forward to implement this trend into your daily outfits? To get the look, take into account these three tips: try to use bright and happy colours such as yellow or green, add funny and statement accessories, and don´t forget your sunglasses!
Look 3: The wild-tropical print is the perfect one to use during your summer festivals! If you are searching for the perfect outfit to wear during your next music or fashion festivals in Ibiza, you can easily get inspired by our Coachella-alike look. The keys: use a tropical and colourful kimono, a pair of denim shorts, and, of course, the must-have of any festival party, a hat!!!
