Trend Spot: Put a Pineapple On It
If you’ve walked into a Forever 21, browsed your “Discover” page on Instagram, or perused literally any section within Target, you’ve probably noticed pineapples...everywhere. Now, this is not some new trend that we’ve just recently unearthed; this pineapple party has been going on for a while now. Bathing suits and graphic tees bare these spiky golden glories, as well as water bottles, jewelry, sunglasses, stationery, cosmetics, kitchen tools, and the list goes on! If something can be adorned with a cute little pineapple, chances are, it has been.
I can’t say why the pineapple has become the emblem of our generation, but frankly, I’m not opposed (in fact, I’m a proud owner of a sweater bearing a bedazzled pineapple and I happen to look incredible in it). I also don’t know why, of all fruits, this particular one has been glorified above all the others. The pineapple has even gone so far as a cultural icon that people very intentionally pose with the spiky globes in pictures. Again, I don’t understand why (or perhaps there just isn’t a why), but you can’t deny that these beachy, exotic-looking girls look pretty damn fly with their pineapples!
Anyway, if you’re looking to pineapple-ify your look as we move into the summer months (A.K.A. peak proud pineapple flaunting season), we’ve gathered all of our favorite pineapple products to help you stay on trend.

We're not sure what the advantage to having ice cubes in the shape of a pineapple, but it's not like we dislike the thought.

Anybody who claims that they don't want to sip a piña colada out of this beauty on the beach is a L I A R.

Hosting a party without one of these seems borderline sinful.

Pineapple + cheese = awful combination. Pineapple Cheese Board = essential hosting prop.
