Take advantage of in-season fresh fruit fashion

Ali Hanson

When the first signs of spring come around, most people add more healthy habits into their lifestyle. Some start kickboxing or cutting out carbs, but this is the first time we’ve seen wearing healthy foods, and fruit, on clothing.

Pineapples have been a fan favorite but strawberries, lemons and watermelons are just as juicy. Brands like J. Crew, Cynthia Rowley, American Apparel, Wildfox and Missguided have all adorned the trend on their garments.

Apparel companies incorporate these graphic fruit prints by placing an enlarged image of a single fruit in the middle of a shirt or printing a repetitive pattern of a shrunken fruit over the entire pair of bottoms. American Apparel and Wildfox have already come out with swim options and Vans has a pair of Pineapple shoes to feel fresh this summer.

Style these pieces during Spring Break by wearing a graphic T-shirt with the fruit print tucked into a maxi skirt with gladiators or into destroyed boyfriend jeans with Converse. This look is very casual for tourist activities. Style your printed pants with a flowing, solid shirt in one of the colors from the pant and nude wedges for a nice luncheon.

If you aren’t totally on board with the fruit frenzy, subtly sport the trend through accessories like Forever 21’s “love n listen” Pineapple Dream Headphones or Juicy Couture Pineapple Stud Earrings. This trend has one feeling very bikini bottom.
