The link between food and fashion is stronger than you may think. In fact, colorful fruits can channel fashion trends. Yes, you read the last sentence correctly. By taking a cue from healthy foods, you may be dressing yourself for fashion success!
I adore spring because the weather is perfect and there is an amazing selection of gorgeous fruits. Mint leaves, perfect peaches, ripe mangos and coconuts are in full form. And ironically these pastel colors are some of the hottest for spring. Major design houses such as Luis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs and Oscar de la Renta all reflected beautiful peach, yellow and mint green hues that reminded me of my favorite foods.
