SS14 Trend: Tropical Print Top Picks

Tropical print will brighten up any gloomy day as the trend appears to be hitting a new climate for summer 2014. I love the how the bright colours boldly form a clash against each other as well as the business of the prints. Here's my tropical favourites from both highstreet and online stores.

1) Bralet - Topshop
Patterned bralets are fabulous for brightening up a plain skirt/shorts/jeans, and this one would certainly do the trick! I love the business of this pattern and how the black acts to tone the pastel blues, greens and pink, making it stand out, ensuring that your style will not go unnoticed. This would look great for summer teamed with a plain asymmetric skirt, blazer and strappy sandals.

2) Bodycon Dress - Boohoo
Bodycon dresses really are a summer wardrobe must-have and printed ones like this really add that burst of colour, making them even more perfect for the season. I like the double strap design of this one as you can cross the inside pair over to add more of an interesting element to the look. Making it appear perfect for a summer evening out, I would team this with a pair of pastel strappy heels and a plain kimono.

3) Purple Kimono - New Look
Great for the evening when it's getting cooler as the summer sun sets, I love this art inspired kimono. The colours harmonise together beautifully and the pattern is slightly random, causing it to appear cleverly garden-like. For a casual day out, I'd pair this with a plain crop top and white skinny jeans, whereas for an occasion out, I would team it with a either a plain bodycon dress or a cropped tee and a midi skirt.

4) Cropped Shirt - Missguided
So comfortable top wear, shirts like this are great for keeping it casual with a pair of jeans. They're comfortable to wear and I love the loud, dramatic impact of the bold, monochromatic array of orange flowers against the jet black background of this one.

5) Scoopneck Playsuit - Topshop
So practical and versatile, jumpsuits are a fabulous comeback with really, nothing not to love about them. I love how the simple style and shape of this one shifts the focus to the almost mesmerizing wash of colours against the delicate, silhouetted palm trees. This playsuit would team perfectly with either converse or a pair of white chunky heeled cage sandals.

6) Palm Tree Wrap Skirt and Crop Top - Missguided
Co-ordinates are great for those days when you just can't decide which top to go with that skirt, or which shorts to go with that tee, and I absolutely love this silhouette palm set! The sunset shade of pale pink causes the silhouettes to stand out boldly whilst the asymmetric wrap skirt gives an interesting mismatched effect. This attire would look fab with a pair of strappy sandals and either a plain blazer or kimono.

7) Midi Skirt - New Look
Elegant and feminine, midi skirts emphasize a stunning silhouette, excellent for summer. I love how the bright colours accentuate the tropical print as well as the intricate floral design. I'd team this one with a plain crop top and jacket in order to maintain a focus on the bold pattern of the skirt, as well as to not cause any print clashes.

Will you be wearing the tropical trend this summer? How will you style it?
