People Are Wearing Watermelon Dresses And It's Taking Over

Move over pineapple, you taste great and look wonderful printed on pretty much everything, but watermelon is king of summer fruits.

The juicy fruit has about 92% water content, so not only does it help quench your thirst on a sweltering day, it won't add too many digits to your calorie count.

Watermelons are also rich in vitamins and previous research by the Department of Agricultural Research at Texas A&M University found that the red and green fruit could increase libido.

The refreshing fruit is very versatile and not only does it taste great on its own, it can be turned into drinks, salads, cake and even carved masterpieces like a dress.

Yup, some people are showcasing their creative sides by turning watermelon slices into dresses and sharing the images online.

It's a fun and adorable way to take memorable pictures that you can look back on and smile.
