Summer means bright colors, short hem lines and lots of sweet treats! For this month’s Diversity Chic, we decided to go with “fruits” as the featured trend, especially with the ever-growing popularity of the pineapple. To be honest, it wasn’t easy for me to find something to wear – I’m just not a fruit wearing girl! Never have been! BUT the beauty of Diversity Chic is to show that no matter what your body types, skin tone or personal style, you can embrace current trends.
Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month we will feature a new trend tailored to our personalities and style.
Our focus is to explore the world of fashion in its unique, diverse, and stylish manner – one trend at a time.
Instead of a fruit print article of clothing, I chose to go with accessories! I found this adorable grapefruit bag at Modcloth (sold out now, I’m SORRY!) and when I saw these watermelon socks on clearance, they found their way into my shopping cart too! Putting an outfit together with these loud, bright accessories wasn’t easy, so I decided neutrals would make a nice backdrop. I know, I know, grey and black aren’t exactly “summer” colors, but whatever, I do what I want! Plus bright jewelry, socks, shoes and bag is enough color for me. I wanted to let the accessories do the talking.
Necklace: Bauble Bar ($48; exact) and Michael’s ($8; similar, on clearance!) | Shirt: Forever 21 (gifted; similar) | Skirt: Express (gifted; similar) | Socks: Modcloth ($6; similar only $2.50!) | Bag: Modcloth ($45; adorable pineapple purse) | Shoes: TJ Maxx ($20; similar) | Lips: OCC Lip Tar in Mannequin ($16; exact)

Is anyone else as obsessed with Jordan’s dress as I am?! Really considering buying one for myself. I also love how Stephanie took the fruit trend (which is typically really casual) and elevated it with a nice midi skirt for a more dressy look. And of course Sevi rocked it with a glammed out pineapple shirt – I love how she rounded out the look with the military inspired jacket…the rule of threes strikes again!
Thanks so much to Lyn’s Snow Cones in Carrollton for letting us use your adorable backdrop! Y’all this place is DELISH – if you’re in the area, definitely make sure to stop by. I highly recommend coconut with cream…get the white coconut so you don’t end up with blue teeth 🙂
