Style Inspiration: Lemon Breeland

Look One is bold, bright, summery and fun. The actual dress worn in the episode is a Marc Jacobs creation and no longer available online but this Jaeger one captures the colourful, striped element of the original outfit pretty well. Unfortunately the colours aren't quite the same as the original and a lot of Lemon's outfits are very matchy matchy so I've made sure the shoes and cardigan are still co-ordinated. The shoes by Sam Edelman look like a pretty good dupe for the style Jaime wore on the show and would be great for adding a pop of colour to a more plain, t-shirt and jeans kind of outfit too.


A floral dress teamed with a cardigan, not forgetting a matching hair accessory of course, makes Look Two the most typical Lemon outfit of the three. As shown in look one plain, bold coloured cardigans are essential for recreating Lemon's style as she seems to have one to match every outfit! This one from Phase Eight looks super soft and is pretty reasonably priced too. Finding the right dress was tough so in the end I opted for trying to match the turquoise base colour rather than the floral print itself. 

Look Three is definitely my favourite, I love how the grey tones the outfit down a little and makes it more wearable. The dress pictured, by David Peck, is the same one worn by Jaime on the show hence the pretty heavy price tag but after searching high and low I couldn't find a good enough dupe anywhere else! The grey pumps from Topshop are extremely versatile and could be worn with pretty much anything plus the pointed toe is a cute detail. I also love how the deep red lip completes the look and establishes it as one of Lemon's more edgy outfits and NARS Red Lizard seemed perfect for that.

After writing several posts on Zoe Hart's style I've been asked to do a similar post on another Hart of Dixie character; Lemon Breeland. Lemon's style, like her personality, is the complete opposite of Zoe's and is a much more vintage and traditional than Zoe's city chic. Everything about Lemon's style is perfectly suited to her personality right down to her flawless porcelain complexion which I'm jealous of in every new episode. I wasn't sure whether to post this or not as I know compared to Zoe's outfits these are much less wearable looks for most people, myself included. Despite this Jaime King wears the outfits beautifully and they all suit Lemon's character perfectly plus I still had fun putting together the post so I hope you've enjoyed my selection of Lemon-esque items. If you'd like to see more of Lemon's outfits, or perhaps how to incorporate a little of her style into your everyday outfits, I'll turn this into a series (providing Hart Of Dixie gets picked up fro a second season!!) Let me know in the comments if you'd like to see more!

 Which look is your favourite? Who's style do you prefer, Zoe's or Lemon's?
