Like florals for spring, the Tropicana trend for summer is far from ground breaking, but it doesn’t mean we have to wear the same old fruit prints every time.

This year, give other tropical-themed elements a try – like exaggerated proportions, knot details, straw accessories and more.

We love the way this dress gives the classic palm leaf print an added dimension and sense of movement through ruffles. This is a dress that was made for dancing.

Bandana-inspired tops are trending big this summer. This look is proof you can channel a tropical vibe without a single piece of fruit in sight.

Nothing says Tropicana like rich Cuban colours and voluminous ruffles. Complete your look with pop-coloured heels – a must for all summer occasions.

Who knew the Hawaiian Hibiscus floral print could look so good? Hansen & Gretel have transformed the touristy uniform into a look that’s on-trend and chic. As seen styled with a Seafolly straw bag, coming soon!

When it comes to tropical looks, colour is key. Make a bold statement with a floor-length skirt and team it with a knotted crop top to exaggerate your proportions.

Channel laid-back holiday vibes with an island graphic print and floaty skirt. Wear this with espadrille wedges for a dressed up feel or keep it casual with a pair of flats.
