They say “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” or perhaps make limoncello. But this summer, the mantra changes even more becoming: “when life gives you lemons, wear them!”
Not only is the bold citrus hue of Yellow hot this season, so is the actual manifestation of the color in the form of Lemon Prints!
Lemon prints have been a favorite of Italian designers for years just take a look at any collection from just about any season of Dolce & Gabbana or Versace.
Inspired by Southern Italy’s Amalfi Coast which is renowned for its sweet delicious lemons that grow in abundance from trees that cling from the cliffs, for decades Italian designers have embraced the lemon as THE quintessentially Italian Spring/Summer print.
I’ve always been a big fan of bold kitschy prints once the weather turns warm (Cactus prints, Pineapple prints, Cherry Prints, etc) and this season is no different. Lemon print pieces for Spring have been on my fashion radar lately mainly because I have been spotting them EVERYWHERE, in shops, online, on Instagram and of course on the runways.
What’s not to love about this freshly squeezed trend, it bright, full of chic Italian style inspo and perfectly suited to Spring/Summer making lemon prints a quick easy way to add some zest and freshen up your wardrobe for Spring!
Stylists Tip: The quickest way to up the chic factor of any dress is to ditch the self-belt (a belt that comes with a garment and is made of the same material as the garment). Instead opt for a belt with texture or contrast to create visual interest. The self-belt that came with this dress was a fabric sash that basically disappeared it didn’t really add any value to the look, by styling the dress with this Chloe Suede belt it creates more of a waistline, breaks up the pattern and makes the entire look feel more luxe.
