Fruit is delicious, nutritious and a major fashion trend for Spring 2011.

It started off small, with a cheeky trinket here and there, but now the fruit fashion trend is in full blown effect. Cherries, apples, bananas and pears are all fashion's latest muses, inspiring a fresh crop of spring-ready styles. While fruit accessories and clothes are cute and quirky as can be, you need to be a bit mindful before stocking up, lest you wind up looking like Chiquita Banana.

Fortunately, our friends at Refinery29 have a keen eye for fashionable fruit rounded up a selection of playful pieces to complement your colorful springtime wardrobe without going overboard.
