I had been waiting for a tropical vacation for quite some time now and Hawaii was my perfect excuse. A nice escape from the mainland and a little taste of island life. Of course, I couldn’t go without my favorite pair of Ray-Ban sunnies, or staple black flip-flops. However, I also couldn’t fail to hop on the bandwagon with a few fun trends. Bright colors and funky patterns have come in again, and to be quite honest with you I am beyond excited! These trends were the perfect touch to my vacation wardrobe and something you might want to add to yours if you decide to tropic like it’s hot.
I’ve been obsessed with the neon trend for quite some time now. When I say obsessed I mean a whole wardrobe full of everything and anything neon. Talk about a walking neon sign (those are cool now). All I can say is, WOW, am I happy that it’s coming back and, WOW, am I not so happy that I got rid of all those clothes, major YIKES. Anyways, now that neon is in again I can’t stop falling more in love with it, especially in a tropical climate. Nothing pops more than some fun neon on a tan. It’s also a great way to add some confidence to an outfit, and will certainly not make you go unnoticed.
Polka dots are whimsical and fun with a touch of class, especially when the polka dots are black and white. They always add some nice personality to an outfit and spruce up a boring pair of jean shorts. I find it fun to pair my polka dots with almost any color or pattern, which makes them so versatile. Then again, the pure simplicity of them will sometimes just do the trick.
I saved my favorite for last! Stars, again like polka dots, have a similar pattern on the clothing, being scattered all around. However, unlike polka dots, stars bring another element to the clothing. They’re fascinating, dreamy, and with their eccentric shape, cutting edge. You can feel whimsical wearing stars, and at the same time so on top of the world. They can be perfectly transitioned from a day to night look with the little help of some shoes and accessories, and will certainly add the “out of this world” touch to your wardrobe.
See ya later:)
