your summer wardrobe is ripe for picking.

If the recent Opening Ceremony and Aloha Rag collections didn't make it clear enough already, consider it crystal now: this season, things are getting tropical.

Lookbook: Opening Ceremony's fruit punch.

Stella McCartney took her collection (figuratively) south of the border for summer with head-to-toe floral, landscape, and fruit motifs, proving that kitschy tourist shops aren't the only ones inspired by Hawaiian flavor. But if you don't want to go as far as allover fruit prints, then there are plenty of versatile options from Quiksilver Women, ASOS, and Topshop guaranteed to give your closet a major burst of sunshine.

And while all of our favorites will fit right in on the beaches of Oahu, don't worry if a summer vacation's not on the agenda- we have a feeling these tropical pieces will look just as cute in the urban jungle, too.
