However it’s not just me and overweight ‘socks and sandals' wearing tourists rocking the Hawaiian shirt. Stella McCartney’s Hawaiian themed 2012 Resort collection was full of tropical prints with clothes that could have looked more appropriate at the beach rather than the catwalk. If it’s good enough for Stella McCartney then it’s good enough for me and I feel Stella’s pretty good company. Topshop have also recently teamed up with Maarten Van Der Horst a Dutch new kid on the block to create a collection full of tropical shirts, jackets and erm cycling shorts... jurys out on tropical print cycling shorts.
At the minute I’m pairing mine with vintage levi’s and lots of gold jewellery but I actually think this will look sick over a black bikini on the beach this summer.
Right so I’m off to look ridiculous as I rock a Hawaiian shirt in the pissing rain. Will I stick out like a soar thumb yes yes I will... wish me luck!
P.S Am I the only person slightly obsessed with Pinterest. literally the best procrastination tool ever invented!
