STYLE GUIDE: Rep Mother Nature With Wavy Tropical Prints


By @Melizards

Plants are a necessary component of our ecosystem, providing oxygen and beauty to the planet we inhabit. In the digital age it’s important to honor such natural wonders, and doing so through wardrobe is a trend we’re totally on board with.

Plant-printed clothing originally became popular via the Hawaiian shirt (AKA Aloha Shirt), which generally features wavy tropical patterns. Now these prints are making an appearance in streetwear as we reminisce the days when more time was spent outside and less time was spent staring at a glowing LCD screen. It’s time to pay homage to mother nature, and if we can do so by rocking sweet snapbacks and tees, we’re down. This isn’t your mother’s frilly floral doe, these prints embody the tropics and jungles, featuring lush palm trees, banana leaves, and hibiscus flowers.
