Few weeks ago here, I told you about a young Cameroonian photographer with whom I wanted to collaborate during my last trip to Cameroon: June Machia. Although very unprepared, I wanted to shoot two looks. You can review for those interested. For the second look, I decided to shoot a look for the summer. Nothing complicated on the contrary, it was to put the basics in the spotlight. The main piece? A maxi shirt. Why for the summer? I think you’re living it right now, when you’re getting ready to go out: how to be dressed by that heat without seeming to go out or get out of the beach? In my opinion, basic / classics of good quality should suffice. Nothing better than a well cut cotton shirt that lets breathe for example. I chose a shirt dress, one of my must-haves of the season.
Daytime look with classic sneakers
For those who can get to work in sneakers or for a classic daytime look, I have paired my dress shirt with another classic that we no longer present: converse all stars white. Canvas too, they are easily worn even by the heat. That’s an effortless look to face a long day.
Sandals with heels for a dressy look
Like the classic shirt, the shirt dress is versatile. These are the elements you will associate that will make your look. For a more dressy look, exit the sneakers, we take the height with heeled shoes and it is accessory to the max. I chose classic Yves Saint Laurent sandals with bridles. For those who are not fond of heels, low sandals will suffice. Do not skimp on accessories. For a more original look, do not hesitate to play the volume. On fluid wide pants or overlay, play and dare !!
Remember: pensez, appliquez, mode
