Normally, we reserve Hawaiian print for beach vacation sarongs or Tommy Bahama-wearing dads. But, with the help of Nina Dobrev
and Dianne Kruger
, we're starting to dig the motif.
Really, it was Dita Von Teese
who kicked things off with her Christian Dior
wrap dress at Coachella last year. We still can't get over how adorable this was—her tilted sailor hat and Louboutin espadrille wedges made her look like a total pin-up girl. Love!
Last month, Nina hit the beach with her gal pals in an Element cover-up we're dying to try out for a sunny summer day. The pink and purple print with a ruched bodice gave a modern spin to the tropical design.
Today, it was Diane, queen of all things chic and effortless, who really made a case for the pattern. She bared her midriff in a blousy collared shirt with a tied waist and a pair of Levi's denim cut-offs. Such a playful errand-running look!
