5 Ways to Mix Style with Fruit


Pineapples, watermelon, and other types of fruit are making a style statement right now, and we’re going bananas over this fashionable trend — especially with summer only weeks away! This trend is winning across the board for home and office décor, and even your closet!

Here are 5 ways to keep up with this “berry” stylish craze all summer long:

  1. The Home

Add some summer color to your home by incorporating the season’s sweetest prints! From your living room to your kitchen, the options are endless! Incorporate a variety of items to make your home summer ready. Your friends and family will for sure feel the summer vibes setting in! From coffee mugs and pillows to art and door knockers, pineapple and other fruits really inspire home decor. For more rationale, Homedit, shares some more thoughts.

“Is anyone in the mood for some pineapple? This sweet tropical food inspires us everyday and we’re not talking about food. We’re interested in its effect on anything interior design-related. You’d be surprised how many variations of pineapple decor there are and we’ve only started to dig into this idea. If you love pineapple as much as we do, let it inspire your home decor and put it on your walls and shelves rather than on pizza.”

  1. Your Closet

Vibrant, fruit-themed prints are a great way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe! Make a statement all summer long with these fun and eye-catching style staples. Hello Fashion Blog shares the summer mindset and how to achieve this simple style.

“I have been so inspired by the beach and tropical places this year. It seems like I’m always day-dreaming about the next vacation and it’s not just affecting my passport but also my wardrobe. It’s easy to incorporate those tropical vibes into your look without hitting the beach. Straw accessories like sun hats and bags are versatile pieces you can easily pull into your look. Tropical graphic tees are street-ready but still a subtle way to satisfy your craving for a beach (or at least hold you over until your next vacation :)”

  1. The Office

Notebooks, pens, mugs, and other trendy office supplies are a great way to add some flair to your work space. We might be a little bit biased, but we’re willing to bet that your coworkers will love your fruit-themed desk decorations. If you work at an office all day, this is a great way to bring the summer sun inside! The summer loving folks at Brit + Co share the rationale for adding some fruit into your office style!

“There’s nothing worse than being stuck inside at the office during a cheery summer’s day. Sure, you could always pack an edible coconut bowl for lunch or download a cute floral wallpaper for your work phone to ease your sun-longing heart, but the cubicle blues are not easily overcome during those long summer months. That’s why we suggest mixing up your office stationery with some fruit-themed favorites. Not only will they remind you of summer all day long, but their cutesy and colorful designs are sure to bring some cheer to your co-workers too.”

  1. Your Accessories

If you’re looking for a simple way to join in on the fun, opt for accessories! A statement necklace or earrings are perfect for adding some fruit to your look. Need a summer staple? Go for a statement tote or phone case to keep up with the trend all season long. To help incorporate a fruit-flavored mix into your accessories, Refinery29 shares some ideas.

“Pulling inspiration from modern art as well, the brass bits and baubles spring to life in the snaps ahead. Sure, pineapples and heavy-metal cuffs don’t always go hand in hand, but we’re willing to bet they look just as sweet together as they do apart.”

  1. Vacation/Time to Play

Summer is the perfect time to hit the beach and relax with family and friends. While enjoying some fun in the sun, choose swimsuits, cover-ups, beach towels, and totes in fruity prints so you can hit the beach in style! From fruity floats and rafts to chargers and ear buds, our favorite summer fruits continue to make fantastic vacation and recreational accessories or toys. To help the fruit and pineapple obsessed family member in your life, The Travel Women share some great fruity items.

“Stand tall, wear a crown and be sweeten the holidays with these tropical pineapple vibes! For example, Wear your island time vibes with a cute pineapple watch complete with a bright yellow strap. Or for stress relief, adult coloring books are the best way to de-stress during the holidays. These tropical designs will transport you to a warmer climate. It’s also bound on the top ideal for both the right- and left-handed. Plus, for the beach, skip the bulky towel with this extra large cotton sheet. It’s thin, folds up easily, making it perfect for the beach or a park picnic. 5% is donated to Rainforest Partnership which helps protect local forests.”
