13 Pineapple Fashion And Accessories That Prove There Is No Other Summer Fruit To Put All Over Your Body
I would've thought that with the Rick Ross song "Diced Pineapples," 2012 would've been the year of the pineapple. But with all of the pineapple themed fashion and goods I'm seeing lately, I think 2015 may be the year for this tropical fruit.
The pineapple is not new to fashion but it actually being used in a cool, bold, not-so-dainty way is something I hadn't seen much before this year. I saw a few brands making pineapple earrings in late 2014 followed by the plus-size pineapple print bodycon dress carried by a few boutiques, notably Pop Up Plus. But I hadn't really thought too much about pineapple itself as a fashion trend until a customer asked me if I would be designing anything with a pineapple print. It took me by surprise, but when I thought about it, it kind of made perfect sense as to why this is the fruit of the summer.
For one thing, pineapples are truly delicious and I am not going to argue with anyone about that. But aesthetically, they are pretty much the boldest looking fruit. An orange is rather one-dimensional, but a pineapple is two colors on the outside and an entirely different color on the inside! Plus, there's the texture. The leaves are smooth while the body is rough.
The pineapple is pretty much a badass version of the pinecone, which (lamentably) I don't see anybody turning into fashion accessories.
