As fall swiftly approaches, my wardrobe is becoming increasingly more floral. Stores like Zara, H&M and TopShop are jumping on the trendwagon and producing some must-own pieces that are worth the minor spend. Here, I’ve taken this killer Maarten Van Der Horst Tropical T-Shirt and shown how you can style it – for guys and gals!
For The Guys:
Since you don’t want to look like your Uncle Ned (twice removed), it’s important that you don’t go too casual with this look. Play up the sleeker side of a tropical print by pairing it with classic pieces: neutral denim, brogues and a fedora. A metallic accessory (think slim necklace or single bracelet) will bring the look to a modern ground.
For The Gals:
It’s easy to lose your shape in a heavy pattern so clean things up by pairing your print with solid neutrals. If the tropical you choose is dark, stick with black – and vice versa. Paired with cute black sandals and a metallic accessory and you’re ready to conquer your next style venture!
