Forget about bananas, strawberries and pineapples. The hottest fruit of Summer 2017 is definitely watermelon. Watermelons have always been a popular summer snack thanks to their juiciness and the way they can quench your thirst almost as good as a bottle of water. However, the fruit recently went viral over the Fourth of July weekend thanks to the #watermelondress.

The social media trend basically involves cutting and/or chewing a piece of watermelon into the shape of a dress then holding it over someone you're taking a photo of. When done correctly, it looks like the person is wearing a watermelon dress. Get it? Things went viral when Ryan Seacrest (really) took his own #watermelondress photo a few days before the Independence Day long weekend.

From there, we have seen countless versions of watermelon dresses including fitted sheaths, fit-and-flare shapes, ballgowns, jumpsuits and even watermelon skin diapers.

If you want to wear a proper watermelon dress, they are actually some very cute options. Not only do they add some pink, green and white to your closet, you don't have to worry about them making a sticky mess everywhere. And if you're looking for something more creative, you could try watermelon-themed accessories. Take a look at 17 cute watermelon pieces you can actually wear.
