Fashion Guide: Say Yes To Summer Fruits!

Summer fruit prints are ALL THE RAGE so today I’m going to talk about incorporating them into your sessions.  If your client is more understated you can still pair a bold print with the right outfit and accessories and feel casual enough to be comfortable yet stylish enough for photos.

The trick to making fruit prints look chic and not overdone? Keeping the rest of your outfit less busy. For example, try pairing one of your fruit-emblazoned pieces with a pair of denim shorts or capris and a simple but stylish summer flat or wedge. Steer clear of high heels with denim shorts/capris or it takes it back to the 2014 vintage fruit patterned trend a bit too much!

The most common patterns I’m seeing are CITRUS! Lemons, oranges even limes are making their way onto dresses, tops, and accessories.

But there are other dress patterns like this Cherry Print Tie-Back Dress from Urban Outfitters I spotted on a recent outing! It’s totally cute!

For your more fashion-forward seniors who want a bold look go with bright, fun colors to pair with your fruit print!
