With such consistent and harmonious collections pouring out season after season, and with so much care infused into every single detail of their designs, it’s really no surprise that the masterminds behind fashion label For Love & Lemons are two childhood best friends. On a fateful study abroad trip to Australia, the two Wyoming-raised friends found themselves interning for well known fashion brands and dreaming of creating their own venture that embodied the flirty, feminine, carefree esthetic they both had come to love. Lucky for us, these tenacious young ladies were able to turn that dream into a reality, and For Love & Lemons was born. As a brand that has truly grown and evolved through the years, admirers of this boho label have come to expect styles that are always distinct and trend-setting. Coming from a mindset that being comfortable and fully yourself is beautiful, the Los Angeles based brand has become synonymous with comfort, femininity and a care-free quality that is quickly discernable from the rest. The brand’s playful name is said to have been inspired by the sun-soaked “lemonade stand days”, and the image of long lasting summer days roaming free with your best friend, coming into your own, and being brave enough to be distinctive in a world full of copycats comes to mind. New customers and long time fans alike are constantly won over by the fresh and delicate vibe in their designs, and how the designers are able to at once embody what is current, without giving over to disposable overly done trends. From their enviable dresses, to their note-worthy knits, to their latest line of sexy skivvies and stylish swimwear, we’ve got nothing but love for For Love + Lemons. And as this brand continues to expand from fashion label to lifestyle brand, you can count us in for the long haul. See For Love & Lemons’ Spring 2017 collection lookbook.
Over the years, there’s been much love for the instantly recognizable dresses from For Love & Lemons. Their contemporary tops, lingerie, and swimwear lines are certainly nothing to scoff at, but season after season, the fashion loving elite arrive with an appetite for more of the brand’s trend-setting boho-inspired dresses because, simply put, nobody does it better. Gorgeous print maxi-dresses like the best selling Luciana Maxi Dress with an in house floral design, tulip sleeves, and a high front slit and cascading details truly capture the essence of this carefree label. More casual looks like the uber popular Strapless Shirtdress made with cotton lace, which pairs perfectly with sneakers for a comfy weekend look, embody its laid back freedom-loving esthetic. Each new collection seems to reassure us all that there’s truly something for everyone. Sometimes a girl needs a special occasion dress, and For Love & Lemons has gorgeous embroidered dresses that really take the wow factor up to a 10. A favorite in this department, the Tulle and Embroidered Mallorca Dress is a lavish upgrade. Romantic and delicate, the stunning engineered embroidery framed with dainty loop trims give a gorgeous barely-there illusion that is genuinely special and irreplaceable. The best part? You can turn up (or turn down) the fancy factor on any of the brand’s desirable dresses by how you style them together with other pieces from the label. The possibilities are endless. Pair a floral maxi dress with an edgy Jameson Suede Jacket in Black for an undeniable cool-girl effect. Add a pair of Cat Eye Sunnies to polka dot print pieces like the Chiquita Long Sleeve Dress for a touch of retro charm. Or highlight the deep V design on dresses like the Amelia Textured Midi Dress with a stunning Moonstone Chocker for an ultra feminine touch.
Since debuting their first lingerie collection playfully coined Skivvies in 2013, For Love & Lemons has expanded on their promise to bring fresh, sexy, cutting-edge pieces to the fashion-loving girl. Since that first season, every collection thereafter has been a joyful surprise of intriguing shapes and gorgeous materials like lace, velvet, and see-through mesh. Ranging from feminine and Avant Garde to rightfully risqué, this lovely lingerie collection offers bras, panties, bodysuits, slips, robes, and pajamas, so you’re covered no matter what the occasion. One of the most playful collections to date is the 2017 Valentine’s day collection featuring the Primrose Heart Bralette with gorgeous romantic red lace and nude tulle with a matching sultry Petunia Heart Panty. Let’s face it, a look this good can be worn on any sexy night of the year. One of the most feminine and note-worthy pieces from the Skivvies line is the Little Rosette Robe, which is perfect for romantic getaways, bachelorettes, and blushing brides. This sweet Ivory robe features intricate ruffled sleeves and rosette details that will never go out of style. Like to show off what you got? Not to worry. You don’t have to hide these flirtatious pieces behind closed door. With see through lace tops and dresses at the forefront of everyone’s wish list, pieces from For Love & Lemons’ Skivvies collection like the Sage Bralette were practically tailor made for pairing under favorite jumpers and dresses.
With the launch of their KNITZ collection in 2014 and the subsequent launch of their swim collection in 2015, inquiring minds want to know: is there anything For Love & Lemons can’t accomplish? The coziest of textures and weaves create knit tops, dresses, bottoms, sweaters, and bodysuits in the KNITZ collection. Both sexy and wearable, the looks in this collection range from the ultra-cozy to downright daring. The Simone Lace Front Dress, one of our faves from the KNITZ collection is created from a dense ribbed knit and fits like a glove. The adjustable front lace details in this long-sleeved dress give it that extra edge you’ll love. In addition, fashionable hoodies, cardigans, and everything in between make this poignant collection one that is not to be missed.
And on the other side of the spectrum, For Love & Lemons’ swimsuit line, much like their SKIVVIES collection, takes feminine details and creates functional jaw dropping pieces ideal for year-round wearability. Waterproof fabrics in lace, scalloped edges, lace ups, and frills, create an exciting range of swimsuits and resort accessories that make you stand out from the crowd. The Corsica Lacy Ruffle Top and matching ruffle bottoms are uniquely girly, eye-catching, and look exceptionally flattering against sun-kissed skin. Layer with the perfect kimono, lace mini dress, fashion towel, or coverup from the same collection for unmatched allure. See For Love & Lemons’ Spring 2017 Skivvies collection lookbook.
