From strawberries and cherries to lemons and oranges, fruit print clothing and accessories are a hot new trend for summer 2014.

While it may sound totally kooky, we think even the most pattern-shy individuals can get behind this trend – these prints are fun, colorful, and perfect for warmer weather.

Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite budget-conscious fruit patterned pieces, as well as some ideas on how to wear this trend. Read on to learn more!

Hot Picks for Summer

Accessories

As always, accessories are a fantastic way to test out a new trend if you’re not fully ready to embrace it. These espadrille flats and scarf both showcase a lemon print in a sophisticated way, while the watermelon-adorned headwrap and bucket bag would look so adorable poolside. Lastly, this Forever 21 pineapple print hat is a quirky take on the snapback trend.

Clothes

There are so many types of fruit print clothing out right now – the pieces pictured above are just a small selection! This orange-adorned swimsuit has a cool retro vibe, while the watermelon print separates, strawberry print romper, and pineapple print crop top have a fun, childlike quality to them.

If you’re looking for something a little more subdued, check out this cute watermelon print button-down. On the other hand, if you’re feeling bold, check out this skater skirt – it’s adorned with a variety of different fruits!

Outfit Ideas

Need some outfit ideas before you try out this trend? Here are two sample looks – one for day and one for night.

Summertime Citrus

Citrus print romper, coral sneakers, crossbody bag
Product Info: Romper- ModCloth, Bracelets- Topshop, Nail Polish- NCLA, Bag- Mango, Sunglasses- ModCloth, Shoes- Vans

Between the fun silhouette, cheery colors, and punchy print, this citrus-y romper is pretty much the epitome of summer. Play up the grapefruit pattern with a pair of casual, coral-hued Vans and citron yellow nails. Balance out the bright colors with a classic tan handbag, then accessorize with several mixed metal bracelets. Slip on a pair of cat-eye shades and you’ll be good to go.

If You Like Piña Coladas

Pineapple print shorts, strappy tank, platforms
Product Info: Top- H&M, Shorts- New Look, Hair Photo- Urban Outfitters, Lipgloss- NARS, Earrings- Steve Madden, Shoes- H&M, Bag- Dorothy Perkins

For a fun yet dressy night out look, try pairing these pineapple print shorts with a strappy satin tank. Platform sandals glam things up, as do these gold fringed earrings. Next, grab a teal envelope clutch for a bold pop of color. Show off the earrings by putting your hair into a chic side braid, then finish with a swipe of peachy lipgloss.

    Fruit prints are sweet and eye catching, but I don’t think I’ll ever be brave enough to wear them myself.
