Watermelon dresses blow up the internet -- and it's the sweetest summer trend you'll ever see

Now, this is a fashion trend we can dig into.

Forget the hairy swimsuit, the male romper and even the pizza bikini. The hottest (and most adorable) trend this summer is the watermelon dress -- and it's taking over social media.

If you haven't seen it take over your feed yet, people are taking bites out of watermelon slices and carving the fruit into a trendy cover-up. Then, they hold their pink masterpiece close to the camera, positioning it in a way that fits their model.

See some of the best snaps of the watermelon dress:
