Blame the heatwave, but I’m embracing all things tropical at the moment, and that includes fruit jewellery – with the odd chilli pepper thrown in.
There is something delightfully nostalgic about this tropical trend, like when you used to hang cherries on your ears as a kid, until your mum finally let you pierce them for real.
Luckily, designers are totally on board this season, and I’m all for Rejina Pyo’s and Prada’s banana earrings, as well as Susan Alexandra’s cherry pearl earrings to match her gorgeous beaded bags.
The key to wearing this trend is simply having fun, and by no means must you shy away from colour. A pair of red cherry earrings will clash satisfyingly with a tropical print dress or pink linen suit.
You can also give it a chic spin by layering it with everyday fine gold jewellery. Either way, here are a few of my favourite pieces for you to shop right now.
