Styling Tropical Prints

Somehow designers manage to capture the wild amazon, colourful screeching birds, eerie foliage and exotic flowers in  prints and slap ’em on a t-shirt. And it looks great.

Tropical prints are a way to transport yourself to the depths of a humid jungle, while your meandering around the concrete abyss of malls and cafes. Here a few outfits I’ve put together using  tropical-print pieces, to inspire your inner wild.

Parisian-Style Outfit Inspiration

We all drool after their unblemished skin, soft, tousled hair, long graceful limbs and the ability to eat a baguette without stuffing their face and spraying crumbs from their mouth, like the rest of us mortals partake in.

But the most coveted, magnified and mystical part of a Parisians life is their style. countless articles and adverts convince you that after viewing so-and-so images of these French bloggers and celebs or after stocking your wardrobe with these specific items, ranging from $1200 gloves to a white t-shirt worth a Harley-Davidson, you will attain the Parisian way of style.

This article is a little different. I have created and compiled a few outfits that have that Parisian, nonchalant influence that you can be inspired by, and put together at home using your own clothing items. So now you can munch on your baguettes, still spraying crumbs, but looking as chic as can be.

How To Style: Turtlenecks

Turtlenecks used to only be seen on ‘nerd’, ‘dorks’ and the generally ‘unfashionable’ part of the population. But now, they reside o the shoulders of the wealthy, stylish and ‘popular’.

Here are a few looks I’ve conjured up:
