Primal Prints in the Wild

SS_071513_Primal_Prints_COVER

Hey, I heard you were a wild one!‘ In the spirit of summer, taking fashion risks into unchartered trend territories and quoting my favorite Flo Rida song; it’s time to talk primal prints. I’m not talking about your uncle’s Hawaiin print shirt that’s 3 sizes too big or the wardrobes in The Real Housewives of Miami walk-in closets.

Over the weekend in Zürich, I spotted a dress by H&M’s ‘Conscience Collection’ on clearance with a delightful palm tree print. Plus, the lightweight fabric was ideal so I didn’t have to deal with any tropic thunder thighs in a tight constricting dress. Then it was time to accessorize. A mix of silver and gold arm candy, mirrored aviators, and my faux tusk fashion necklace…

Style Notes ~ A trick to make any inexpensive tropical print dress look more Versace-esque is to focus on the heels and accessories. I loved the thick gold chain on the faux-tusk necklace by Splenderosa and the neutral python print heels toned down the wild  print dress. While I wouldn’t recommend this look for a wedding or any formal event; it’s ideal for any summer vacay, date night or casual summer soriee. Aloha!

How do you feel about tropical prints? Going wild or No way?

This post was inspired by this Roberto Cavalli 1-piece swimsuit I saw in InStyle magazine. Hope you had a great weekend! ~xoDale

  5. Depends on the print, some tropical prints I find are a little tacky at times but every now and then you can find a real keeper! Loving your dress it has a slight vintage feel about it and loving the mix of silver and gold bling. I would have gone all gold in the accessories department but then I think you’d loose the retro charm of the print.
