STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Aloha, Summer

It’s time to say “aloha, summer” and wear some trendy tropical prints! Summer isn’t exactly endless, so now is the time to take advantage of seasonal florals. You can wear all black anytime! Take a break from the monochrome of it all for a change. Whether you want to be a little festive with a tropical crop top or go all out with a printed jumpsuit, this trend is worth trying.

This Fashionista’s hibiscus flower skater dress from Hollister Co. is perfect for hot days. It’s surfer girl-chic and a total standout. Just look at those colors and amazing print! The criss cross detailing is on trend and very summery. She layered a denim vest over the dress to add visual interest and finished the look with some cool Converse kicks. This outfit is luau ready!

If you don’t want summer to end, I think this dress can easily be worn when the leaves start to turn. Instead of the denim vest, opt for a denim jacket, cardigan or sweater. A cozy knit would look great worn over the dress and give the illusion of a skirt and sweater  combo. You could even switch up the Converse for combat boots to give the tropical look some edge. After all, fashion is about experimenting and having fun.
