This week I watched a video on You Tube about the Aloha Summer collection from Dorothy Perkins and have been inspired to write a Tuesday Shoesday blog post all about this tropical trend. It’s a very ‘holiday’ look with bright colours – lots of summery yellow and blues – and plenty of floral prints. But it’s not the dainty ditsy flowery patterns from summers past: this year’s florals are tropical, with palm prints and big blousy flowers and this has inspired me to look around for some shoes and sandals that would compliment this collection. Have a watch of the video and let me know what trends you spot:
When you’re wearing a big bold tropical pattern, it might be best to pair this with some neutral shoes rather than over-do the trend from head to toe. I’ve looked for some neutral shoes that won’t take attention away from the print you’re wearing and some brighter coloured pumps to pick out the colours from the patterns:

I also wanted to find a few floral patterned shoes in order to tap into the trend even if you don’t want to wear a bright print on your body. Not to mention the fact that I love patterned heels! I’ve found some pretty pairs online so let me know what you think of this trend and whether you’ll be wearing it yourself this summer 🙂
