How To Look Like A Real Life Slim Aarons Photo

Endless summer high society vibes. 

Vibrant prints. Pastel bandanas. Games of backgammon, poolside in swimwear. Sun-drenched days sipping limoncello cocktails in some of the most dazzling locations across the globe. There’s something about the sweet life that iconic post-war photographer Slim Aarons captured in the 50s and 60s. A glittering moment in time. With nostalgia and wanderlust at an all time high for the exotic, we’re dreaming up our very own Slim-inspired summer. 

First phase: scrap sneakers, jeans and t-shirts (sorry!). For some of you this may mean a whole new wardrobe but if you’re committed to refreshing your summer holiday mood, hold in there old sport. The photographer was famous for refusing to photograph anyone in this kind of casual garb. Instead reach for gem-bright colours like fuchsia, emerald green and mango yellow. Say yes to the billowing maxi dress. Say yes to show-stopping patterns. Say yes to white linen head-to-toe. And when in doubt, just wear a bikini with some kind of embellished headwear. Make a splash at the next intimate get-together with this leisurely edit that feels both laid-back and all class.
