Say aloha to summer.

Be honest: who doesn't love a pop of color and a vibrant, tropical print to spice up their summer closet? In particular, there's nothing like a Hawaiian-style motif to make you feel like summer has arrived – however, a full-on Hawaiian shirt can be difficult to pull off without looking like a lost dad on vacation; no one wants to look like a tourist when they're not actually on holiday. But because a bold, all-over floral pattern is such a breezy, fun look to incorporate into your warm-weather wardrobe, here are a few different ways to wear this loud design in a way that will make Lana Del Rey proud. 

For starters, try keeping it classic with a Hawaiian shirt in a lightweight, silky satin or cotton-blend fabric. The key here is to find prints that are more tropical and multi-colored instead of white florals on solid shades. Tuck yours into denim bottoms to contrast the floaty-ness of the top, or try a pair of white pants to add some freshness to the look. If you want to try something a little more daring, opt for a printed dress: it's a simple and easy piece that will turn heads (for all the right reasons) that you can throw on with anything from sneakers to sandals. 

Alternatively, you can add a subtle hint of Hawaiian print to your outfit with a pair of espadrilles or a practical – but stylish – cap that will instantly brighten up any simple look.
