10 Of The Best Fruit Print Items Just In Time For Summer

Are you getting your five a day? 🍊🍋🍅🍇🍉

Apples, peaches, melons, bananas, it doesn’t matter which you choose, it’s time to get some more fruit in your lives. (Yes, we know we sound like your mum.)

But we’re not here to bang on about getting enough Vitamin C, we’re more interested in nourishing your summer wardrobe and if the high street is anything to go by you won’t have any problems there.

Fruit prints have been on the catwalk for some time now (thank you Dolce & Gabanna’s Italian summer dream) but as of summer 2019 are now available a little more in our price range. Grab your shopping trolley.

Alora Fruit Print Dress, Kitri Studio at Selfridges, £125

If you haven’t already heard of Kitri Studio let us have the pleasure of introducing you to your new go-to brand for occasion dresses. It might be the higher end of your budget but with a fitted bodice, short frill sleeves and a flattering square neckline - this is the perfect dress for a summer wedding or festival. Just be warned, it is dry clean only.

Fruit Salad Shirt, Warehouse, £34

This shirt screams dad on a Miami summer break in the best possible way. Imagine yourself drinking Pina Coladas and lounging around a pool. The print also comes in a midi skirt and a dress so if the shirt isn’t your style, you’ve got plenty of other options.

Fruit Crop Wide Leg Trousers, Topshop, £36

These wide leg trousers are a much easier way into the fruit trend – less kitsch and garish than many of the high street prints so you can wear it to work without your boss thinking you’re off to the airport. Perfect paired with Birkenstocks or other dad sandals.

Fruit Print Midi Dress (plus size), Pretty Little Thing at ASOS, £28

If you don’t have the cash to spend on the Kitri fruity dress then Pretty Little Thing have got you covered with another mid-length fruit covered bonanza. Complete with spaghetti straps so you can pop a t-shirt underneath on chillier days. Win win.

Fruit knot headband, Topshop, £10

Headbands are making a comeback, so is there anything more on brand than a fruity headband? If you want to dip your toe into the trend but aren’t so sure about turning up to the office in a giant fruit bowl then go for a hair accessories. Complete with big gold hoops: Cher from Clueless would be proud.

Citron lemon t-shirt, New Look, £8.99

More of a jeans lover than a dress wearer? Then don’t miss out on getting one of your five a day. This lemon t-shirt will look great with high-waisted Levis and a pair of Converse. Also easy to chuck on at the beach as a cover up.

Fruit print cami dress, Weekday, £40

This dress has a banana and dragonfruit on it so quite honestly you should be putting it in your basket before even reading the end of this sentence. It also has a great Angelia Jolie-style leg split so you can get your pins out.

Sheer fruit socks, &OtherStories, £8

Socks in the summer always seem a bit, well, sweaty but what else is a girl to do when wearing trainers? These sheer beauties are a little less suffocating than those winter woolens, and they’re covered in bunches of tiny grapes. Cute and functional.

Blood orange t-shirt, £56, Birdsong London

This hand painted t-shirt by independent shop, Birdsong London, is adorable. Drawn on an organic combed-cotton base, it is fitted enough to look good tucked into trousers, but not so much that you’ll be overheating as soon as you put it on. Not to mention the products at Birdsong are all produced ethically, sustainably and by women paid a fair wage.

Lemon button detail dress, £20 (was £25), Boohoo

Still not sold on fruit patterns? Well perhaps this lemon dress will be enough to convince you. The print reminds us of long sunny days spend drinking Fanta Lemon (the only correct holiday drink) and napping in the sun. And it’s available in sizes up to a UK 24. Result.
