Bananas are one of the most perfect fruits ever! They are readily available around the world and give you instant energy.

A single piece of banana contains only 90 calories, 0 cholesterol, it has high fibre content and is loaded with calcium, potassium, iron, vitamin B6 among others. It fights anaemia, regulates blood pressure and the heartbeat and is good for your brain too!

In other words, it is a superfood that you can carry and eat anywhere.  But bananas are not only good for your health, they are also good for your style! Because right now, bananas are a fashion fruit!

We had the cactus trend, the pineapple and now, the yellow tropical super-food! By the way, do you think it is a coincidence that yellow is THE colour this summer?

We’ve been seeing more and more bananas on the catwalks and in the streets, whether in accessories, such as Prada’s banana earrings in the S/S18 collection or as Fendi’s trinkets, hanging from its bags, or printed on trendy T-shirts and clothes and swimwear.

So bananas are absolutely everywhere and the timing is just right; bananas have indeed a summer vibe,  they make us dream of exotic places, South American white-sand beaches and sunny days.

But of course, you don't need to go Carmen Miranda on us and go bananas (sorry about the lame play of words, I know, but I couldn't resist...), but some cute bananas here and there will surely brighten up any outfit!
