Monday Muse: L.A.’s For Love and Lemons Heads to the Beach

Los Angeles-based For Love and Lemons is the sleeper brand that’s about to make it big. Think BCBG big, because the line is quickly expanding from an under-the-radar to a full-fledged California lifestyle line. For Love and Lemons is already a blogger favorite, but they’re racking up collabs and capsule collections (Free People, Anthro, etc.) and giving girls cool clothes with a dash of laid-back Cali boho babe and a major streak of casual sexy. The brand’s newest season is inspired by a Pacific getaway, offering up breezy, beautiful pieces that are sure to be on the back of every street style star from now until Coachella.

Brazilian babe Luma Grothe models the looks for the looks and the photos were shot on location in Kauai, Hawaii. The beach was apropos, since the line hails from the sunny shores of California and often takes inspiration from the culture, style and attitude of Los Angeles. Fan favorites such as crop tops and coordinating separates are the brand’s bread and butter, so this season added plenty of sheer overlays with technicolor embroidery as well as lace accents and peekaboo panels that hide what they have to and reveal plenty of skin for those daring enough to slip into the diaphanous creations.

For more conservative customers, the for Love and Lemons always has a few more covered up options as well (plus its expansion into knitwear, Knitz, is as cozy and comfortable as can be while still being covered up). Long, airy gauze maxis seem destined for the beach as a cover up, but can easily pull double duty for warm weather picnics and pre-summer soirées.

Apricot, turquoise and white were the dominant colors for spring (plus, they’re perfect for the dogs days of summer that are sure to follow), but with so much sheer, nude and mesh on display in the collection, those pops of color are magnified and intensified tenfold — it’s an easy way to make a statement no matter where you’re headed. And with new releases from the line every two weeks (as is the For Love and Lemons MO), you’ve got plenty of options to stock up on for your own getaway this year.
