When one of my style gurus was in Los Angeles, she couldn't wait to tell me all about her new banana skirt. What the hell is a banana skirt is what you're probably asking yourself. Well, this season a bunch of designers made Summer-y pieces with fruit prints on them, one of the most iconic being the Prada banana skirt. Now it seems like a fleeting trend though and we really should be buying more of investment pieces, things that will last the test of time. Paying big bucks for a skirt with bananas? It may not be for you. But that doesn't mean you can't get in on the fun too. Try fast fashion stores like H&M, Zara, and even Asos. They're all knocking off the trend with cute designs that are affordable and let you in on the fun, too.
