We kind of wear a rendition of this every Songkran, but who knew floral prints or particularly floral Hawaiian print would actually be considered fashionable this year?
The summer season is about getting away from it all. This year, the global pandemic may not allow us to cross all the world’s borders, but fashion is on hand to whisk us away to paradise destinations, starting with Hawaii. Make no mistake, this legendary print — star of the ’90s — is no longer the preserve of surfers. In fact, it’s taking over (almost) all the items in our wardrobes.
What’s going on with the world? After a year spent in jogging pants and pajamas, suddenly everything has been turned upside down, as all manner of the most uncool apparel and accessories from fashion past comes hurtling back to the forefront of the scene. After Crocs, bucket hats and shiny gold chains, next in line comes a pattern that was once the butt of much criticism in the fashion world: Hawaiian print. Yes, it’s making a comeback, and not just for surfers.
