In 2018, we collectively decided that wearing faces on our heads was a good idea. In 2019, we’ve decided to let our diets drip from our ears, drape along our necklines and line our wrists, instead. Fruit jewelry has taken the accessories zeitgeist by storm—a decidedly less strange movement than last year’s face earring obsession, but an equally statement-making one, to be sure.

Don’t get it twisted, though. Here at StyleCaster, we love statement jewelry so much we’ve spent hours perusing it; we’ve struggled to narrow down our favorites so thoroughly that we’ve published themed shopping guides full of 100+ pairs of earrings. We have a veritable statement jewelry habit—one we don’t plan to kick any time soon. So when we make fun of face jewelry, or fruit jewelry, or any other oddity in the accessories sphere, know we’re doing so kindly. We’re poking fun at the campy absurdity the same way we’d poke fun at a friend. We love kitsch. We can’t get enough of it.

Thankfully, summer 2019 has offered us an absolute plethora of ways to unleash our campiest selves—and to scream our love of fruit to the masses, while we’re at it. Earrings no longer come in a few, straightforward forms; drop earrings look like bushels of grapes, studs like fruity smiley faces, hoops like juicy peach emojis. And other forms of jewelry have gotten the fruit treatment, too.

It is the year 2019, and it’s officially become cool to play with your food—so long as you do so sartorially.
