We've been banging on about the allure of tropical prints for Spring since we first spotted Lisa Ho's island-inspired prints back in May at fashion week. Heck, even Bella's in on the act! Eternally optimistic and guaranteed to put you in a vacay-frame of mind, the tropical print has shaken off any dag-a-rama connotations of those gaudy Hawaiian shirts your dad used to wear in the '90s (or, just mine?), graduating to the top of our twenty-twelve class of cool. The sharpest way to wear this graphic is in the guise of sharp tailoring and sporty separates. It's modern, it's crisp, it's unexpected. One of our favourite local retail heroes, Country Road, has done a killer tropical capsule collection — so we thought we'd present our top five favourite pieces, along with styling tips on how to make this botanical work for you. Hawaii, here we come!
