‘Watermelon Dresses’ Are Dominating Instagram (And What Is a Watermelon Dress, Anyway?)

One of summer’s most refreshing treats is also one of the season’s most unusual fashion choices.

Instagram has been inundated with photos of people with slices of watermelon covering their bodies, making it look like they’re wearing the fruit. Isn’t social media amazing?

Look up #watermelondress on Instagram and you’ll spot more watermelons than you will in your supermarket’s produce section during its Fourth of July sale.

Clearly, people (mostly women) are having a little bit of fun with the idea that the watermelon is perfectly shaped to act like a makeshift dress. We just hope this doesn’t start a trend because we can’t imagine any woman would be happy to know they have a figure that makes them an ideal fit for a pineapple or a cantaloupe.

"ADAM! Make me a watermelon dress!!!" this is a new thing, apparently #watermelon #watermelondress #fashion
