Dreamy Dresses For Summer Evenings


Balmy summer nights call for ethereal dresses, simple shoes and natural, glowing makeup. We joined photographer Harper Smith on a perfect evening as she took off in her Airstream for a lazy weekend in Topanga Canyon, and dressed her from head-to-toe in LA designers. Here are the pictures, just in time to inspire your weekend wardrobe.

Sun-bleached colors like cream and white make a floorlength gown look casual and effortless. Top with a fringed suede jacket and sunglasses for added insouciance.

Entertaining at home—whether its just you and your pup or a group of 20 friends—calls for relaxed glamour. A ruffled silk gown and layers of charm necklaces will do the trick.
