Summer trends are the most fun. They’re usually bright, functionable and bold. For whimisical trends the pineapple is back this summer in everything from home goods to wearables. A pineapple became a symbol of status and wealth during Colonial times for its scarcity, so no surprise we’re loving it lately. Today, Erica from Erica’s Fashion and Beauty and I are showing you two ways to wear the trend.
How Alicia’s Wearing Pineapples:
I always seem to wear more prints in the summer, especially tropical prints! I like to feel like I’m on vacation even if I’m just living my everday life. A pineapple print is the perfect mix of fun and whimsical for summer. I love it on a trendy blouse like the mark. Pretty as a Pineapple Top. An off the shoulder, statement sleeves top in a cute pineapple print goes perfect with jeans and flip flops for a weekend vibe. Off the shoulder can be tricky esp if you struggle with strapless bra’s like me. I paired a high neck wired bralette underneath for a more functional wear. Pair it with the mark. Fruit for All Earrings and your trendy summer fun level just hit scorching!

How Erica’s Wearing Pineapples:
“Summer is here and pineapples are seriously everywhere! I am totally on-board with this fun trend, btw. For this look I was inspired by the model in the Avon brochure. Pairing these printed shorts with a chambray button down is not something I would have immediately thought of plus statement earrings are a little out-of-the-box for me. I added a some crazy bright pink makeup and ta-da – Summer fun outfit!!!” Erica’s Beauty and Fashion
