Sorry influencers, Queen Elizabeth just trumped all y’all.
A cursory scroll through Instagram or Pinterest (pick your poison) will tell you fruit prints are very “in” for summer. Melon print on wicker handbags! Citrus on sundresses! Cherries on blouses! And while they might remind this editor of middle school and Limited Too, not even that is far enough back for venerable fashionista Queen Elizabeth.
Why? Because the 93-year-old queen has been rocking fruit prints for decades. This photo of Her Majesty working a very chic cherry-print A-line dress with pussy-bow tie-neck at the 1990 Royal Ascot proves just how ahead of the curve she is—and it’s everything.
