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.

The possibilities are endless. A quick search of the hashtag #WatermelonDresses on Instagram will reveal plenty of women, children and babies with the snack-styled summer wear. Even some men have gotten into the act.

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