STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Tropical Tops

With Fahrenheits too high for flannel, lumberjack plaids have passed their prime and paved the way for a new summer print. What used to be a tacky tourist fashion is now showing up on street style radar around the globe. The Hawaiian shirt in the back of your father’s closet is now a must-have for the summer season.

This week’s Fashionista brightens up a basic ensemble with a vacation-inspired print. Paired with charcoal gray denim and coordinating espadrille flats, this Fashionista’s Hawaiian oxford adds vivid variety to solid basics. The oversized menswear cut of her shirt contrasts slim fit denim and feminine lace flats, striking the sweet spot between androgyny and urbanity. Careful not to detract from the busy print of her shirt, this week’s Fashionista keeps the remainder of her ensemble relatively understated.

Paint a flattering silhouette by tucking this tropical trend into an a-line skirt or throwing it over skinny-fit denim, as worn by Alexa Chung. To soak up the sun in this season’s latest trend, check out Topshop and Forever 21.
