What style is your watermelon dress?

July 13, 2017 12:41 PM

The newest crazes sweeping the Internet have probably come and gone since you’ve been reading this story, but one new-ish craze involves the posting of wearing watermelon dresses.

So how does one create a watermelon dress? Easy – just hold up a manicured piece of watermelon with the person being photographed in the background.

Just chillin in my new, puffy-sleeves #watermelondress ☺️ Happy 4th!

The best part of this summertime fad is you get to eat the dress when you’re finished – no dry cleaning required.
