Fruit is good for you — and for your wardrobe.
This summer, fruit motifs are showing up on jewelry, bags, clothing, pool floaties, everywhere you look. Keep your warm-weather look fresh and sweet with these fun fruity finds.
Meri Meri Watermelon Necklace ($11 at NW Art & Frame, West Seattle, and merimeri.com). Try a taste of the trend with this sweet little acrylic slice of watermelon with a bite taken out of it. The necklace hangs from a delicate gold-toned chain, which accentuates the shiny gold-foil seeds.
J.Crew Kayu Fruit Clutch with Pom Pom ($84 at jcrew.com). Squeeze some summer flavor into your style with this lightweight, hand-woven raffia bag in the shape of a lemon (watermelon also available). The neutral color and detachable crossbody strap make it a versatile choice for everyday use.
Roark Revival Hineapple Leaf Strapback Hat ($28 at Evo, Wallingford, and roarkrevival.com). The “dad cap” gets a hip summer makeover in a rosé hue with a single embroidered pineapple to get him in the aloha spirit. And it’s 100 percent cotton to keep him cool-headed.
Sleepy Mountain Coconut Enamel Pin ($10 at etsy.com/shop/SleepyMountain). Take your tiki drink to go in the form of this too-cute enamel cloisonné pin made in Seattle. It’s got a straw and a pink flower. Cheers!
