Go Tropical with the Season's Hottest Trend

Psychotropic is an emerging trend of the spring summer’18 and is making it big both on and off the runway. Prints like tropical undergrowth, big floral motifs, fun fruits, abstract shapes, sunsets set in the lush dark backgrounds for a ‘glow-in-the-dark’ effect describes this very trend that’s a subset of the psychedelic movement. Characterized by saturated colour palettes, and expressive brushstrokes offering flora and fauna feels paired with hypnotic geometrics makes for a very interesting trend to don. So, men - make this trend of vibrant colours, vivid tropical patterns and digital prints a part of your fashion story this season, and brave the sun in style!


Go floral

Though men are a little sceptical about these, let us tell you, floral prints aren’t just for beach outings or for Christmas jumpers – you can definitely pull these off in style, if you take tips from the runway looks! Just feel confident in whatever you wear, and you’ll see how these can become your go-to outfit. Psychotropic florals in vibrant hues can brighten up your summer. Go for floral printed tees with linen shorts or chinos for easy-breezy smart casual looks. You can even go for a casual shirt with tropical flowers, and though it’s a bold option to go for, pairing it with plain jeans or linen trousers will do the trick.


Flaunting fauna

Another inspiration from Mother Nature, these prints are not just perfect for summer but for all year round. The rule is to let the focus be on the printed piece and keep the other elements minimal. You can definitely go for animal printed shorts that aren’t just a stylish alternative to simple shorts but also give off fun holiday vibes. Tone it down with a casual white t-shirt or a pastel shirt on top and with printed loafers or slippers, you are all set for the season. You can even go for quirky crew neck t-shirts with vibrant fauna prints with blue denims and sneakers. Perfect for the beaches or even for an all-city tour, go for these shorts or t-shirts and we assure you, it won’t be a regret.


All for foliage

Foliage prints, whether it’s exaggerated Hawaiian prints or bright leafy patterns, are making their presence felt big time. It’s the perfect time to give your geometrics and stripes a miss and go for the more natural cactus, palm trees and leaf prints instead. To channel your inner touristy vibes, choose a loose fitting foliage printed button-down shirt and pair it up with dark denims or trousers to showcase this top summer trend on point. You can even nail a leafy printed shirt by wearing it open with a white t-shirt underneath and a classic pair of blue jeans. This time, you can go for bigger or bolder foliage prints too as the t-shirt helps to keep it all balanced and with a pair of aviators and loafers, you are all ready for a super cool weekend brunch look!


Sunrise & Sunset

Well, sunsets and sunrise aren’t only meant for viewing and fruits aren’t just meant for eating. You you can even flaunt them on your clothes this season, all thanks to the rise of the tropical trend! Sport sunny prints in vibrant hues to stand out in the holiday crowd. You can wear them with a pair of neutral-hued bottoms, such as white or beige Bermuda shorts and flip flops for laidback vibes. You can even go for pineapple-printed t-shirts that you can team up with joggers and sneakers that will be perfect for a day out look or a casual movie-date look.


So, these quirky and fun prints are not-to-be-missed this spring summer. Get your looks together by updating your wardrobe with all of these prints and their variations, and witness how cool you will look in this tropical weather!
