Who knew watermelons would be the latest fashion trend?!

This time, the trend has to do with cute poses, 'juicy' couture and an optical illusion...

The 'watermelon dress' has taken the Instagram community by storm, with thousands of Instagrammers posing with watermelon cutouts strategically placed in front of their bodies to look like mini dresses and skirts.
