Welcome to the Jungle – SS16 Fashion Trend

One of the big SS16 trends is jungle inspired botanical prints.  The great thing about this trend is that you don’t have to fly to some exotic local to wear it, you can rock it out in your own urban jungle!  I’m talking palm fronds, banana leaves, event birds of paradise.  Colorful and bold, this is a trend that will add some fun to your summer wardrobe.  The great thing about the pieces that I am showcasing below is that they are all on trend and all vegan! Check it out!

This jumpsuit from Zara is light and airy.  Perfect for hot summer days when you want to be both cool and stylish, and what’s more stylish than a jumpsuit?  Pair it with flat sandals for a mid-day brunch or metallic strappy heels for a night out, this jumpsuit can be styled many different ways depending on the event or your mood.

There is no reason that you can’t be fashionable at the office and bring current trends into your work wardrobe.  This lovely dress from Ann Taylor is a great take on the tropical trend.  The shirtdress is a classic style that is effortlessly chic, add this fabulous abstract palm frond print, and bam! You just pumped this classic piece up a notch. Don’t restrict this dress just to the office, it can easily transition from day to night, weekday to weekend…just change your shoes and accessories and you are good to go.

I love the pairing of a tropical print with a retro-look bikini like this one from Unique Vintage.  The vibrant birds of paradise print looks great with this halter bikini with the high waist bottoms.
