SS 2012 Sand and Sun Tropical Vacation Prints

Long gone are the days of tacky tourist “I’m on vacation” shirts, shorts and sundresses. These new tropical prints have us day dreaming of Summer’s warm rays and exotic beach escapes.

Click the images to shop. The Warehouse Tropical Print Dress $116.38, Herve Leger strappy leather sandals original price was $610 now only $244, and the BCBGMAXAZRIA Jeb Strappy Sued, Black was $250 and is now only $175.

The colorful hibiscus and lush greenery are the latest prints to be trending for Spring 2012. NYFW Spring 2012 catwalk was filled with everyday silhouettes that were infused with graphic tropical flowers and equally as vivid colors.

The bold Hawaiian style was seen in everything from modern dress designs at Altuzarra to Stella McCarthys Roschard inspiration. With such a bold statement of layered palm frawns and hibiscus motifs, we suggest pairing these resort wear pieces with minimal jewelry or strappy sandals. For floral blouses or tops, try a colorful trouser or cuffed pant to pull of the look.

The explosion of layered florals is the perfect addition to any Spring/Summer wardrobe, and the infusion of color nicely compliments the Spring 2012 color palette.
