As temperatures are on the rise, Hawaiian Tropics has been setting up Hawaiian Tropic Escape Stations in Palm Springs, NYC and Miami over the course of April through May. The sunscreen and tanning oil label’s brand ambassador Sarah Hyland wore a palm tree patterned dress for an event in New York City this week. Do I spot a summer trend in the making? Hyland is certainly making a case for rocking this print as often as one can this June through August.
I’ve been fan-girling over Hyland ever since Modern Family first aired on ABC in 2009, debuting the actress as cool-girl Haley Dunphy, a hot rod with serious attitude and a whole lot of “where can I get that?” fashion. Clearly, Hyland’s a trendsetter on and off camera. Florals for spring? Snore. Palm trees for summer? Brilliant. We may not be going on a dream vacation to the Bahamas next season, but we can absolutely wear a tube-top mini with palm tree décor to make ourselves feel better about it.
Clearly, I’ve been sold on more than Hawaiian Tropics Sunscreen here (though my Irish skin thanks you for your services).
Talk about summer style inspo. I adore Hyland’s palm-tastic number so much that I went on the hunt for a duplicate. Check out my favorite five finds inspired by Hyland's dress that should be added to your summer wardrobe ASAP.
