Hawaiian Punch

Make a bold summer statement with these tropical-inspired fashions.

Hawaii fashion

This season, designers had tropical climes on the brain, gathering inspiration from the lush landscapes and warm beaches of the Hawaiian islands. Palm leaves, tropical fruit, leis and other symbols of Paradise City can be seen on a range of silhouettes right now, from loose, easy pieces like palazzo pants and rompers to body-con dresses and bikinis—appropriately designed to flaunt a little of that tanned tropical skin. Pineapples and hibiscus, the state flower, are popping up on earrings, necklaces, handbags and other accessories.

So pick up a few of these beach-worthy pieces and wear them out before summer comes to an end. Your wardrobe will be saying, “Mahalo.”
