This season, the high street is swamped with tropical prints, rainforest-inspired patterns, and fabulous fruity motifs.
And what better antidote to the greying summer and relentless march towards September than a Hawaiian shirt or paradise-themed dress?
Don’t worry if bright colours aren’t really your bag; there are lots of botanical pieces around in a more refined palette, so you can still get in on the leafy action.
From bananas to canopies, bugs to jungle animals, there’s bound to be a tropical print for you.
On nights out, why not try a shirt dress with a desert island theme?
Style with ankle boots and lashings of red lipstick for a standout look.
Catching up with the girls?
A breezy printed blouse and mom jeans is a cool combo.
Team with some chunky flatforms to keep things laid back.
Looking for a little inspo?
Here are some tropical print ensembles that have us yearning for sunnier climes.
Holiday Every Day
Keep things right on trend with a cold-shoulder dress in a bright floral theme.
With hair pulled up and minimal accessories, this look reminds of paired-back holiday dressing, while the slouchy peep-toe ankle boots add an urban edge.

When you think of tropical prints, the first thing that springs to mind is likely the Hawaiian shirt.
In popular culture, it’s become a symbol for geekiness, unfashionable tourists, and middle-aged party goers.
With geek chic more popular than ever, it’s time to capitalise on the Hawaiian shirt’s speccy reputation.
Tie yours in the front to add another dimension to this look, and wear with super-oversized glasses — distressed denim hotpants will show off your fashion credentials even further.
Looking for some supersized glasses? We love these from Chloe:
Go vintage with your tropical prints with a bona fide ’80s dress.
We love the ruffled neck detail and voluminous sleeves on the one below, both of which are right up to the minute, showing that fashion really is cyclical.
Curl hair through the ends and brush out for a soft look that still has plenty of oomph.
Finish off with a slick of pink lippy.
The beach is surely the ideal place to try out this trend.
If you can’t make it to a sandy shore, fashion your fruitiest swimsuit at your local pool and pretend you’re miles away.
We love this banana-themed two-piece — navy and yellow are a partnership made in tropical paradise.
This latest print trend can definitely be work appropriate too.
Choose a blouse in a soft palette and wear with some tailored navy trousers for a chic look.
It’ll brighten your day when the weather closes in — just throw on a blazer and you’ll be good to go.
