Is it suddenly hot in here or is it just the increasing trend of tropical prints that are making temperatures rise? From Dolce & Gabbana’s colourful mixed and matched dreamy prints to Gucci’s flowers and snakes camouflage, the print for the summer couldn’t be more appropriate. The explosion of colour and the chaotic mix of all kinds of flora and fauna, islands, clear waters and forests in fashion designs are the perfect recipe for a summer vibe. Finally, there is a trend that makes us dream and imagine ourselves in tropical summer paradises! That’s fashion wise!

This season’s print is fresh, inspirational and has that summery vibe we’ve been waiting for months — could we just conclude that summer is finally here? The idea for this summer is to look feminine and pretty in tropical prints, what more could you ask for? Whether you want to feel super sexy as Sophia Loren in Saint Tropez or wear clothes that make you feel like you are on an eternal vacation, make sure to not miss the tropical trend this season.

Pull off the print from head to toe, or simply start with a hibiscus necklace and palazzo pants, but let us warm you: before you realize, this pattern will have taken over you! And to make you fall for it completely, in DressedIn Madrid we’ve compiled some outfits ideas to give you inspiration. Check them out!Dressed_in_madrid_tropical_prints_total_look

Get the full look. Choose your killing piece: a dress, a romper, a mini skirt…, and get the right pattern. Whether it is toucans, leafs or bananas, make sure your clothes are tropical enough and have fun with accessories: funky shoes and statement jewelry will be perfect choices for an impressive total look.


Make a fashion statement with one tropical print piece. If the summerish of tropical patterns is too much for you, you can still try this wild trend in a more relaxed way. Possibilities are countless! From a palm-leaf mini skirt paired with a simple plain tee to a punchy tropical print top matching tailored shorts. For the shy ones, the trick is to play with any kind of accessories featuring the wildest prints and colours ever!


Mixed prints. Combinations can be sometimes chaotic — have you heard of the art of “mix and match”? —, and chaos can be sometimes beautiful. The result? A daring yet engaging twist to your everyday look. Go wild with a striped pencil skirt and a tucked-in floral top or pair a denim shirt and animal-print clutch with a tropical-inspired A-line skirt for a fun outfit. Choose your weapons!
