For Love & Lemons always serves as the best guide when it comes to finding the ideal skimpy summer dress or top you’ll love so much as to wear every single day during the warm temperatures. The newly unveiled For Love & Lemons summer 2016 fashion line is a love at first sight, as it always is with any collection from the LA-based lifestyle brand designed by BFFs Gillian Rose Kern and Laura Hall. Featuring Aline Weber, the collection’s lookbook is named ‘Reverie’ and it does actually make us fall into a summer reverie with all its floral embroidery, transparency, lace, ruffles and mini lengths. Available at RevolveClothing.com, these embellished dresses are for women that are dreamers at heart, but also know how to turn the heat up with the right piece of clothing accentuating their best assets.
There is so much to love about this collection we can’t find the right words to describe our emotions, but one thing is for sure, you’re going to invest in more than one piece for summer. Bold and sensual without looking vulgar, these see-through maxi gowns and lace dresses ask nothing but self-confidence and a pair of platform sandals in order to turn you into the trendsetter in town. Our favorite piece? Perhaps, the ruffled peasant dress with lace embroideries that you simply need to slip into to walk out the door looking effortlessly chic and romantic!
Lace seems to be the focus of the entire collection, as it keeps on appearing in the lookbook in different colors, from white to subtle pinks, utilized for a number of spaghetti-strap lingerie-style tops, mini skirts and dresses. It’s a perfect fabric for letting your skin breathe during the humid summer days, while also adding the right dose of elegance to your day-to-day looks. Then again, you can easily transfer them to nighttime parties with friends or to wear on a date with your beloved one.
Lots of skin revealing cutwork dresses, ones embellished with unexpected cut-outs on the chest area or the ribs are other key pieces in the For Love & Lemons summer 2016 collection along with the crop-top two-pieces and breezy printed or monochrome spaghetti-strap sundresses. As you can see in the lookbook, the focus is placed on femininity and sensual elegance, which is why dresses and skirts are the main styles available, coming in different lengths, patterns and silhouettes to flatter every body shape and meet every taste.
One thing we have noticed in the lookbook is the lack of accessories used with the exception of one single strip of fabric used as a choker embellishing the bare neck. Either super-thin or thick, they come in different colors to match the outfits providing the right accessorizing game. Looking so harmonious with the dreamy dresses, this simple styling trick asks for no more extra details, this way keeping all the focus on the simplicity and uniqueness of the clothing pieces. It’s here that you understand what a great impact a small detail can have on your overall outfit. Velvet platform sandals are other must-haves for taking your summer looks to a whole new, towering level!
