How to Copy For Love & Lemons' Dreamy Style on a Budget

How to Copy For Love & Lemons’ Dreamy Style on a Budget

Because you should feel like a princess every day

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to feel beautiful. You can be empowered while also showing off your femininity in lace and ruffles. That’s the message of For Love & Lemons.

For Love & Lemons is an LA-based brand focusing on “the principles of confidence, femininity, and individuality.” And their clothes? They’re killer.

Founded in 2011 by two best friends who ran a lemonade stand together as little girls, the brand is growing its presence with some 2.8 million Instagram followers and countless celebrity fans, including Kylie Jenner, Vanessa Hudgens, BEYONCÉ(!!), Ellie Goulding, Hailey Baldwin…I could go on.

The brand is known for its beautiful designs and free-spirited charm. What does this mean? Some of the prettiest dresses you’ve ever seen.

The brand does make other clothing, but is most famous for its dresses. Their swimwear and lingerie are also very popular.

To really capture the look of For Love & Lemons, I’ve taken some of their most distinctive designs and turned them into outfits that you can a) wear IRL and b) afford on a college girl budget. 

Let’s get started!

Outfit #1: The White Lace Dress

What could be dreamier than a white lace dress?? This design showcases For Love & Lemons’ beautiful use of lace and embroidery to make a simple design feminine and flirty. Now, to make this class-ready…

Products: White Lace Dress (L) – Macy’s, Bag – Miss Selfridge, Mascara – Amazon, Lipstick – Nelly, Earrings – Oliver Bonas, Denim Jacket – Mango, Moto Boots – Shoemall, White Lace Dress (R) – Gilt

Start with a high neck white lace dress. If it feels too girly, add a denim jacket and moto boots to toughen it up. Next, add metallic accessories, like this studded bag and these drop earrings. 

The brand doesn’t use heavy makeup, instead allowing models to flaunt their natural features. Playful makeup, like a swipe of mascara and some pink lipstick, keep this look young and fresh. 

Outfit #2: The Off-Shoulder Floral Dress

The floral print and romantic neckline of this For Love & Lemons mini dress turn it into a piece that’s both cute and sultry. If a dress like this is too much for class, save it for that weekend getaway or special date.

Products: Slip-Ons – Shoemall, Floral Dress (L) – Forever 21, Floral Dress (Center) – Bloomingdale’s, Lip Gloss – Harvey Nichols, Sunglasses – Topshop, Planner – Vera Bradley, Leather Jacket – Sans Souci, Mascara – Selfridges, Floral Dress (R) – Asos, Roller Fragrance – Hattan Home

Again, we’re going to take a feminine piece and toughen it up, this time with a leather jacket. Pink Keds make the dress casual, but not sloppy. 

Flirty touches, like a floral fragrance, pink lip gloss and long lashes, topped off with dramatic cat-eye glasses, complete the look. This floral planner is a super cute add-on for all college girls.

Outfit #3: The Red Ruffle Dress

The neckline. Those ruffles. That color. While this dress is a textbook case of “gorgeous dresses we never have an excuse to wear,” styled right, it makes a glam look for a night out. Or class. Or the library. Wherever you want to turn heads.

Products: Black Heels – Macy’s, Red Dress (L) – Asos, Star Studs – Zappos, Red Dress (Center) – Asos, Red Lipstick – Gilt, Fur Coat – Boohoo, Lace Stockings – Zappos, Headband – American Eagle, Turtleneck – H&M, Red Dress (R) – Asos

For a night out, there is nothing flirtier than a ruffled mini dress. But in red? You’ll be absolutely swoon-worthy. 

For Love & Lemons is big on plunging necklines. If that’s too much for you, layering a turtleneck underneath your dress is a trendy solution. Next, lace stockings are a sultry addition that are sweet without being too revealing. Add cute velvet heels and a fur coat. 

Now for princess-worthy accessories, put on your star-studded headband and earrings and swipe on bright red lipstick.

Zodiac Style: Water Signs – Pisces, Cancer & Scorpio [Updated 2018]

Zodiac Style: Water Signs – Pisces, Cancer & Scorpio [Updated 2018]

Outfit inspiration for the romantic water signs.

Have you ever wondered if your zodiac sign helps dictate your personal style? That’s what we at CF are trying to discover in this four-part series that explores the link between fashion and the stars.

In case you missed the first two parts, see Zodiac Style: Air Signs – Aquarius, Gemini & Libra, and Zodiac Style: Fire Signs – Aries, Leo & Sagittarius. If you’re an Earth sign, expect a post on your style up next.

For the third installment, we will be looking at the water signs (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio) and their personal style. Water signs have a romantic and observant nature and will often wear their emotions quite literally on their sleeve. Water girls tend to dress according to how they feel on any particular day. However, these signs have totally different styles, which you can learn more about below:

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Symbol: The Fish

Traits: Romantic, Imaginative, Helpful

Colors: Sea Green, Violet, Indigo

Fashionable Pisces: Whitney Port, Ashley Greene, Rihanna

  • Pisces are true romantics, which makes them drawn to flowy, feminine and delicate styles.
  • Fish girls embrace creativity and are always searching for unique and artsy accessories.
  • Pisces rules over the feet, so girls under this sign love wearing fabulous shoes.

Pisces Fashion – Outfit for Inspiration

Products: Blouse – ASOS, Trench – JCPenney, Skinny Jeans – Topshop, Earrings – Etsy, Clutch – DSW, Cuff – OpenSky, Heels – DSW

This sign is all about romantic, dreamy pieces like this flowy satin oceanic colored kimono top. (The back has a bow!). When worn with some basic black jeans, it makes a gorgeous yet simple daytime look. 

What Pisces wouldn’t love this feminine structured raspberry trench coat? After all, warm-toned fuchsia looks stunning with cooler teal shades

Add some fabulous caged shoes (don’t the straps remind you of ocean waves?) to satisfy the Pisces love for footwear. Girls under this sign love artsy looking accessories like this interesting clutch, an intricate cuff bracelet, and the adorably unique fish earrings.

Cancer (June 21 – July 21)

Symbol: The Crab

Traits: Patient, Creative, Compassionate

Colors: Silver, Pearl White, Pastels

Fashionable Cancers: Diane Kruger, Jessica Simpson, Selena Gomez

  • Cancers usually dress according to their mood, so their style is forever changing, and could be completely different from one day to the next.
  • Crabs are very sentimental, so they look for clothes that have a story to them. Girls under this sign are also big fans of vintage clothing and accessories.
  • This sign loves to wear clothing that is both traditional and feminine with lots of soft details.

Cancer Fashion – Outfit for Inspiration

Products: Top – Gap, Blazer – ModCloth, Jeans – Old Navy, Earrings – Etsy, Bag – ASOS, Flats – Betsey Johnson

Cancers love a traditional look and is there anything more classic than jeans and a white top? This look mixes both classic and vintage styles with a simple, soft pale linen top. Layer an always-classic white blazer to amp up the style. The jeans are a simple dark rinse. 

I added some basic silver flats with a feminine bow and a vintage-looking quilted bag for interest. Finally, accessorize with some vintage-inspired delicate cameo earrings for another hint of a time gone by.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Symbol: The Scorpion

Traits: Dynamic, Social, Intuitive

Colors: Black, Dark Red, Purple

Fashionable Scorpios: Katy Perry, Rachel McAdams, Anne Hathaway

  • Scorpios are drawn to intense, rich colors, but usually have a closet full of dark-colored clothes.
  • This sign loves to attract attention with their clothing, but always leave a little something to the imagination.
  • A Scorpion likes simple clothes with an edge and a hint of sex appeal.

Scorpio Fashion – Outfit for Inspiration

Products: Top – A&F, Jacket (vegan) – Lulus, Skirt ($5!) – Charlotte Russe, Earrings – Macy’s, Cuff – BaubleBar, Heels (vegan) – Lulus

I wanted to capture a look that was both dynamic and mysterious. 

Scorpios aren’t afraid to show a little skin, and that’s exactly what this bold dark red silk camisole does, while still maintaining a classic shape. A simple black bodycon skirt balance out the bold top, while these heels retain the bombshell look Scorpios love. 

Add to the edgy look Scorpions are fond of with a structured black motorcycle jacket and accessorize with a unique cuff bracelet and dramatic drop earrings.
