How to Style Fruit Prints this Summer

Wondering how to style fruit prints this summer? Well, you’re in luck, because this month’s Stylish Monday collaboration features fresh and fruity prints! As we continue to emerge from our long forced hibernation, we’re feeling optimistic and our outfits are reflecting that. If you’ve followed me for a minute, then you know that bright colors and bold prints are totally my thing, so this month’s theme wasn’t much of a stretch for me at all. I can’t wait to show you how I interpreted our ‘Fresh and Fruity’ theme and how the other Stylish Monday ladies worked it. This is a fun one! You’ll even have a chance to join the fun and link up with us.


Fruit Print Dress

I actually purchased this adorable shirtdress a few months ago, even before we had chosen this month’s theme. I really wanted to try a shirtdress, now that I’ve lost a few pounds, because I was curious how it would fit me. So of course I perused Amazon, scouring through the listings until my head was swimming with ideas. And then this dress popped up for me, and I was instantly smitten! The bright print, the tiered silhouette, the lady-like collar, and the sleeve details were just singing my name! The brand is Donna Morgan, and I’m so impressed with the style and quality! I’ll be on the lookout for new styles from that line in the future!

Now I’m going to let my Stylish Monday sisters show off their bold colors, and fresh and fruity styles for the summer. What is Stylish Monday? It’s a collaboration of influencers and bloggers from around the globe who come together once a month to show off how we interpret different themes and styles. These ladies are vibrant and stylish and are so supportive of each other. It’s always so fun to see how we can all come together and pull this thing off! Please click through to their blogs or Instagram accounts to see more. Here’s their looks, and a little bit about their outfits.

Suzanne – Ask Suzanne Bell – “I love the vibrant pattern and color of this bold wrap skirt; it feels so optimistic, fresh, and cheerful. Bold prints can be a bit intimidating to style, so I say keep it simple, with neutral pieces; like this black ruffle top, raffia bag, and hat. From there, allow the print piece, to be the star of the show!”

Nina – Sharing a Journey – “We are definitely out and about these days.  My bright colors mirror my optimism for the sunny summer days ahead.”

Julie – Fashion Trends and Friends and Instagram FashionTandF –  “Nothing says summer more than fruity prints and bold fun colors especially after long cold Illinois winters!  I can’t resist my kitschy summer fun prints!”

Michele – On Instagram as Seechele_styles – “Feeling fruity in my Target dress with lemon and limes and oranges on it.”

Emma – The Style Splash – “I bought this Fabienne Chapot striped cherry print dress on eBay. I’m a big fan of the Dutch brand and their quirky prints. A shirt dress is a summer staple for me as they’re cool and easy to wear.”

Nancy –  Nancy’s Fashion Style – “I am feeling like a basket of fruit or a box full of fruit sweets, lol, in this outfit! Oranges, strawberries, and raspberries! Love that color combination! I have ombre nails at the moment with red and orange.”

Nicole – High Latitude Style – “In interior Alaska, summer temperatures remain pleasant in the drought season except when it rains. The record is 100F in Ft. Yukon,but we already think 85F is too hot. In the monsoon season, it feels unpleasant due to the high humidity and temperatures in the 50F or so. Thus, in early summer, it’s shorts and tank tops with flip flops, in late summer, it’s rain gear and layering. Since the Sun is in the sky 24/7, sun-protective clothes are my go-to.” 

Amy – Amy’s Creative Pursuits – “Love fruit prints but you don’t want to look like a piece of  fruit?  Here’s  how to incorporate the fun fruit print trend into a neutral outfit.”

Shelbee – Shelbee on the Edge – “I bought this bright orange blazer a few months ago but had trouble styling it until I found this adorable fruity printed swimsuit. And I figured why not style a blazer over my swimsuit. It’s not like I follow fashion rules anyway!”

Ada – Elegance and Mommyhood – “Fruity Floral Flounce!!! That’s what I am calling this outfit. Between the florals and paisley design of my ruffled skirt and those bright orange sandals, I got the citrus fruity vibes and all the Summery florals going!”

Lucy – Lucy   “This month’s collaboration got me digging into my wardrobe for something fresh and delish to style up.  Found this fun lime maxi decorated with cherries- how sweet!  Lime green is already a favorite with me- especially for summer- and with the added fun red-cherry print, well that’s enough to get me smiling😊  Fresh, quench-thirsting look for this hot Montreal summer- I’m ready!”

  1. Andy, this dress is amazing! I love the bold bright fruity print and the shirt dress style looks so great on you. Those gingham sandals are really something special, too. And they look fabulous paired with the fruity print! This was such a fun theme and the collage this month really just make me smile a big bright smile! Happy summer!


    1. Thanks! I think the tiers make the difference for my body type. And I adore the retro print.
