A reader wrote in with perhaps the most fun and “on-brand” question of all time. She’s invited to a 40th birthday party in Spain with a dress code of “Slim Aarons -inspired” (jealous!), but is stumped on what to wear. I’ve gathered lots of chic choices — all of which I want to wear myself. See my picks for what to wear to a Slim Aarons party in Spain!
What To Wear To a Slim Aarons Party in Spain
First things first, you know my admiration for Slim Aarons is deep. The famous shutterbug’s work inspires almost everything I do, from throwing pool parties and BBQs to recreating Poolside Gossip for magazine editorials.
And of course there was this pinch-me day where we got to recreate the original Slim Aarons photo Poolside Gossip with Nelda Linsk and Helen Dzo Dzo Kaptur (featured in The New York Times).
So, for this question, I went straight to the source: this Slim Aarons photo shot in Marbella, Spain.
SO dreamy, right?
Something breezy and flowy like a caftan or maxi dress would be ideal either in white or a colorful, happy hue like yellow, pink or blue. Jetset glamour is what you’re after.
The reader shared that the party is in September, which is the end of summer, so it should be warm in Spain, but not hot. Perfect!
Check out my picks below & let me know your favorite!
I realize most of my picks are splurge-worthy, but how many times do you get invited to a Slim Aarons inspired party in Spain!?
If you should need further help with accessories after you select your dress, just say the word! My only fee is an invitation to the party.
And of course, if you’re looking for more inspiration, check out these Slim Aarons books and art below.
