STYLE: Food Print Clothing

Have you noticed that it's basically impossible to enter a real or online store lately without being bombarded with clothing covered in miniature food items? I've seen this trend more online, but in those rare times when I've been foolish enough to leave the safety of my couch to enter The Real World I've seen racks and racks of cutesy cupcake print dresses and watermelon shirts. Some clothes take it even further and offer photo print graphics that completely encompass the garment so you can commit fully to becoming the hamburger, instead of just letting the world think you merely love hamburgers. Or you can just get a polo with a tiny stitched strawberry on the chest or whatever. There's something for everyone.
BECOME THE BURGER!

It might sound like I'm mocking this whole food friendly clothing thing, but with my well documented love of color, print, kitsch and weird stuff in general, I'm actually super on board with the food invasion currently infiltrating our malls. 

I haven't seen many people actually wearing this stuff, though. I would wear it because it seems like something my kindergarten self would have worn, so I'm automatically into it. Don't like the idea of dressing like a kindergartner? Think about it - five-year-old you was free of judgement and gravitated toward what you liked just because you liked it. As adults, a lot of people worry about clothes looking cool or flattering or eliciting some kind of response from other people. Five-year-old you didn't care! Five-year-old you would have worn the pizza shirt. Five-year-old you probably even peed your pants once or twice, and what, may I ask, is more freeing than that? Dressing like a child is freeing, but, more than that it's fun. Just get on board already!

Kale T-Shirt  //  Apple T-Shirt  //  Pickle T-Shirt

Candy Shop T-Shirt  //  Pancake Sweatshirt  //  Donut Stack T-Shirt


Bow Tie Ice Cream T-Shirt  //  Nacho Shirt  //  Cartoon Junk Food T-Shirt

Junk Food Tank Top  //  Milkshake Shorts  //  Burgers & Hot Dog Smiley Tank Top

Ice Cream Dress  //  Watermelon Dress  //  Fruit Dress
These ones have small prints that are so cute close up:

So, would you wear clothes with food or candy on them? Is it really better to leave your kindergarten self in kindergarten? Who's buying me that pickle t-shirt?

  1. Some of these are definitely more bizarre than others. I think I've seen the hamburger shirt before, and the Blackmilk leggings (cause I'm a BM stalker now), but a kale tee???

    1. Agreed! Some I actually like and others I am more fascinated by. The kale tee is just really hilarious to me for some reason! xo

    1. Yesss! I hope this gets embraced on a more mainstream level because I want to see people walking down the street in popcorn leggings. xo

  3. I admit, when I saw the hamburger sweatshirt on Modcloth in the plus-sized section I thought, "FOR REAL? I know I'm a fat girl, but do I have to wear a BURGER SHIRT? This shit is obvious."

    But I'm not opposed to the idea. Especially those adorable milkshake shorts. The sweet shape plus quirky print is adorable.

    1. I know! It can be a little insulting for sure. I just love weird patterns and things that are a little bit crazy. Those milkshake shorts are so great, especially the color and little ruffles! xo

  4. I'm v.impressed with how you found all these! I think it really depends on the food for me. I'm not sure about the burger jumper but those popcorn leggings are ace - I'd definitely wear them! The soup can jeans and Watermelon dress are also fabulous. I'm always up for embracing childhood outfits x

    1. Yeah, some of these I just love to look at because they're so realistic and out there, but others I would totally wear regularly, like the watermelon dress. I do have a weakness for that pickle tee for some reason, though! xo

  5. Not only do I love this trend for food prints right now, but I really agree with you about kids just wearing what makes them happy and that makes them coolest of all. I saw a boy the other day, who was like 5, and he had 3 massive sparkley brooches just pinned on his shirt at random and he looked so cool and I wished I could be more like that.
