This trend is all about embracing the wild and dressing with a sense of adventure. In the wardrobe, you’ll find animal prints on parade and breathable pieces ready for warmer weather. Around the home this trend comes to life through jungle designs, parrot-covered cushions and palm prints gone wild. Get ready to see the world through tropical-tinted lenses.
“I’ll be mixing it up this season, trying a bit of ‘clash couture’. Perhaps a spotted skirt and striped shirt, or by trying a print with a coloured background instead of the usual neutral and black.” — Kylie Gillies
“Animal prints and motifs are a lot of fun…they bring out the kid in everyone, which is never a bad thing!” — Poh Ling Yeow
Changing your spots has never felt so natural. Embrace your animal instincts with leopard print on pleated skirts, shirts and dresses. Start small by teaming statement prints with block colours, or go bold, sporting multiple prints with pride.
“Besides ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’… the tropicana trend brings to mind, adventure and comfort in something lightweight.” — Barry Du Bois
This season, we’re bringing out his wild side in earthy neutrals and safari styling. JC Lanyon leads the way
in comfortable pieces that seamlessly merge fashion with function. Look out for subtly tailored layers that can be worn from afternoon through to evening.
TROPICAL PRINTS FOR YOUR HOME
The trick to creating the perfect tropical interior is in the mix. Select statement pieces like palm-printed bed linen, fuchsia-bright cushions and botanical-inspired artwork to accent your interiors. Then blend it with white and light colours along with cane or rattan textured accessories.
“There’s some amazing artwork out there with tropical birds like parrots, toucans and flamingos, also botanical prints like birds of paradise, palm trees and rubber plants. Add these elements to different parts of your home to link back to your theme.” – Shaynna Blaze.
