The cheerful, ’90s-inspired design first started popping up back in February – it was featured on a lingerie set of J. Crew’s newest intimates collection – and one month later, cool-girl brand HVN partnered with Champion for a collection that included a cherry-print sweater, shorts, and bucket hat.

Whether you want a beachy straw envelope clutch or a more ’90s-era transparent tote, there’s so many ways to accessorize with the fruit that will work with your unique style.


Not a fan of wearing it? Fine. But how about an adorable cherry-shaped light that will instantly make any wall the focal point of your apartment? And if that lighting isn’t for you, there are also mats, pillows and iPhone cases that can incorporate the print into your home.

If you can’t get enough of the pattern, the good news is that it’s available in pretty much every form of clothing: shorts, dresses, bathing suits, rompers, t-shirts, tanks – you name it.


I’m deeming this summer the season that cherries replaced florals as the most popular pattern – and now, I’m really craving a bowl of them. Happy shopping, everyone! 🍒
