When Life Gives You Lemons: 33 Zesty Pieces For Spring

Squeeze a little zest into your wardrobe and your home with these lemony evocations of summer.

Is there anything more redolent of the Amalfi coast in the summertime than the sight of a bowl of thick-fleshed, sweet yet tart lemons? They are everywhere to be seen amidst the coastline’s scenes of la dolce vita made flesh, in our limoncello glasses, painted onto our rustic plates, growing joyfully in groves. We are all for odes to the wondrous citrus fruit and, as it happens, there are many to be found right now, whether emblazoned onto swimsuits, summer dresses, bags or plates. These are the ones getting us in the Amalfi mood right now.
