Such a sweet treat, anyway you slice it – Pineapples are the official fruit of summer 2014! While lemons took center stage for spring, like at the Kate Spade runway show, they have drifted off into the background for this tropical fruit to take over summer! Adorning tees, bags, home décor items and more – if you want pineapples, you don’t have to look very far!
Work this statement print trend by starting with a fruity design by way of these fanciful tees:

Tips for rocking the trendy statement printed tee:
Keep It Simple
When wearing a fully printed item, it’s best to pair with solid basics instead of trying to cram too many prints into one outfit. Pick a solid green skater skirt or a basic black pant to let this printed trend shine through at center stage.
If you’re feeling cheeky enough to wear more than one print in your outfit, remember to keep it balanced. Wear like colored prints and space it out along your body. So if you’re rocking the pineapple tee but want to add another print, try to put it in your shoes or your handbag to avoid looking off balanced or cluttered.
Go for Fancy
Summer is a great season for dressing up your casual staples. A casual tee with a big pineapple emblazened across the front can be just the piece you need to be the foundation of a fancy-casual ensembe. Starting with the tee, layer on a leather moto jacket and a sparkling sequin skirt, complete with strappy black heels for a look that takes you well into the wee AM hours while you’re out clubbing with you girls!
