Ah, the joys of Instagram
Is there anything that says summer more than watermelon? No, we don’t think so. And given the rainy weather we’re having, we’re clinging onto anything remotely summery. Like watermelon dresses.
What are watermelon dresses, we hear you ask? Well, it’s a cute little trend that’s taken Instagram by storm, and we want in. It involves a clever optical illusion.
You basically cut a watermelon slice in the shape of a dress, and hold it over someone in the background so it looks like they’re wearing it. They key is to get the perspective right.
But if you’re one of those people who ‘holds’ the Eiffel tower or ‘props up’ the Leaning Tower of Pisa, you’ve got this covered.
If you search for the hashtag #watermelondress on Instagram, you’ll see there are some rather clever designs out there too.
Extra style points if you get your pug involved.
Now… pineapple dresses next?
