This summer, think velvet swimwear, 70s-inspired accessories and, preferably, a yacht deck at sunset just avoid anything designed to actually swim in
Question: what do the Wicked Witch of the West, cats and Insta models have in common? Answer: an aversion to water. This summer brings a new take on poolside posing one that updates the classic Slim Aarons images of the jetset at the Hotel du Cap or David Baileys images of Marie Helvin in Hawaii in the 70s. Aarons and Bailey have women in gleaming with sunscreen, lying on loungers after a morning dip. The holidays of Instagram, by contrast, use summer as a backdrop, one to frame you just so.
