Summer dressing allows for an unbridled optimism that only a less-is-more philosophy and palette of light, bright colours can bring. It’s that time when you can let your freshly pedicured toes see the daylight through open-toes shoes; when a ponytail is a stylish necessity because the humidity is only going to mess your hair up, anyway. Where a dress and pair of sandals are the only two things you need to throw on to make up a complete outfit.
As to whether that outfit turns heads depends on the type of dress and sandals. If its all put together as it is in Michael David Adams‘ latest shoot Summertime Chic then yes, it will. Don West’s styling of a bright red billow of Halston at the opening shot, or a sunshine yellow 1960s shift dress, wakes up your senses with its colour. The final look of a Herve Leger intense white dress with high slit has a sensuality that ensures heads will turn.
Add hair by Mary Irwin and makeup by Michelle Cameau and its summertime chic you’d want to replicate.
Michael David Adams’ (michaeldavidadams.com) photography is glossy and striking, set against perfectly chosen locations. You can view the full shoot at the gallery above.
