Even if you aren’t escaping on a tropical retreat right now, you can always capture the warmth and beauty of an island destination in time for another Canadian summer. On the Spring/Summer 2018 runways, tropical prints caused a sensation and brightened up the season’s catwalks. If you have a passion for bright colours and beautiful, punchy prints, try bringing island charm into your everyday summertime wardrobe. Here are a few ways to master this runway trend right now.


On the Jacquemus catwalk, sunshine yellow was the order of the day, in the form of this ensemble paired with an oversized and floppy straw hat. We are liking this slinky yellow design, which pairs effortlessly with the contrasting black polka dots on the bodice.

Michael Kors

At Michael Kors, the tie dye effect was back en vogue, and made a bold impression on the runway with its softly blended blue and white shades. This casual, pastel-toned dress is a perfectly chic look, particularly when paired with this straw bag and a pair of flip-flops.

Baja East

The tropical trend received an update on the Baja East runway, where a splashy green print illuminated a crop top and a pair of matching trousers. The retro look was finished off with beige sandals, which allowed the summery bright green motif to stand out and steal the spotlight.
