They’re sweet, come in just about every color and are good for your health. I’m talking about fruit of course! They are nature’s candy and they also make great arm, neck and ear candy as well. I love it when designers find inspiration from nature because nature is the truest form of art, be it the vibrant colors of a watermelon or the texture and pattern of a tiger.
I’ve always loved quirky accessories because they’re a conversation piece and they can also provide insight to your personality. I noticed this Fashionista’s cute fruit bracelet in class and I thought it was the perfect addition to her green Peter Pan collared blouse. If you want to go all out with your fruit-themed accessories I recommend this fun Betsey Johnson bracelet from Macy’s. You can wear it with a nice summer dress or wear it casually with a T-shirt and let the bracelet do all the talking. Also check out this simple and adorable apple necklace from ModCloth.
The fruit theme doesn’t stop at jewelry, brands have incorporated fruit into other accessories as well. When I think of summer, I can’t help but think of hot days snacking on refreshing watermelon. You can take this trend to your feet with these watermelon inspired Vans. Also, this backpack from the recent Nasty Gal and Lazy Oaf collaboration is the perfect bag for summer. This backpack will add some sweetness to those harsh summer classes. It will also make a perfect bag for that summer road trip!
Spotted: Check out the Dolce&Gabbana’s spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection where the unlikely pairing of fashion and vegetables turns out beautifully.
