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