Our wardrobes never looked so good!

Summer’s most vibrant and zestiest trend is a cocktail of tropical prints that look so good you’d be forgiven for watering at the mouth just by looking at them. From Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci to Altuzarra and Charlotte Olympia, fruit motifs are everywhere this season in a bold and bright colour palette. Whet your appetite with our top picks of fruit punch inspired pieces below.


I have a pen, I have an apple…

Tropical prints were the dish of the day for both Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci during the spring/summer shows last September where pineapples decorated anything and everything from pyjama style shirts to trainers and swimwear. Get ahead of the trend with this purse from Pull & Bear or incorporate this gold-plated ring by I+I for a funny but subtle touch.

One in a Melon

It looks like the pineapple is in danger of some seriously tropical competition as the juicier watermelon is squeezing ahead. In semicircles or triangles, the fruity motif comes in all slices and sizes. These Mango earrings are everything you need this summer to add a little bit of shine and colour to any look. But what would this fruit be without water? Shield yourself from the rain with this umbrella from Topshop.

When Life Gives You Lemons, Wear Them!

We all know (including Stella McCartney ) just how great tanned skin looks when set against anything yellow so indulge yourself this season with this citrus salad bikini. And if it’s too soon to start thinking about the beach, go for the grey jumper from H&M with a little citric detail.

Go Bananas

Whether or not you think this trend is bananas, you can’t avoid the mass of fruity items that adorn the high street this season. We say embrace it with Zara’s banana crossbody bag or if you really want to feel like Jane in Tarzan, opt for this printed playsuit from Warehouse.

Keep Calm and Cherry On

It seems you definitely can have your cherry and eat it too this season as this scrumptious fruit provides us with all the sartorial nourishment we could require. From these Gucci pumps to a delicate print shirt from Pull and Bear, we’re spoiled for choice.
