Beat The Heat Looking Chic Poolside…

It’s pool-party season, which means it’s time for lots of fun in the sun. And that begs the question: how do you dress when you’re hitting the pool scene? Every girl wants to look stylish without trying too hard. The anxiety of accepting a pool party invitation or going to a resort for vacation this summer will vanish when you read these helpful styling tips.


1. Pick a Color Scheme

Look in your closet first and write down the colors you see. Take that with you when you go shopping for your bathing suit. The colors that you are already comfortable wearing could be represented in your new bathing suit.

2. Review Your Hair, Skin and Eye Color

Bathing suit shopping can be overwhelming when you walk into the department and see lots of bright, wild colors. Focus on finding one that repeats or compliments your hair, skin, or eye colors.

3. Don’t Forget The Extras

These are the things that make you feel dressed. Sunglasses, the tote bag, the cover up, the accessories, and the shoes are part of the complete ensemble. Make sure all the pieces relate and harmonize with each other.


4. What to Wear If You’re At The Pool But Not Swimming

If you are not splashing in the water, you are making a splash in your outfit. Look for a relaxed floral or striped dress that comes to the knee or the ankle. Consider wearing a tunic over a white jean or a linen pant.

5. One Bold Move is All You Need

If you prefer wearing neutral colored separates, all you need to make your poolside entrance is one bold accessory. Consider the wide brimmed floppy hat, a generous lightweight infinity scarf, or a metallic heeled sandal.


6. Push The Envelope

Take what you know about your colors and put them in a bold print. Explore eye-catching cover-ups!

7. Focus on Fabrics

Warm weather fabrics to choose from are cotton, linen, lace, eyelet, seersucker, or Indian silk. Straw is perfect for your bag, hat or wedge sandal.

8. Sunglasses Are The Must-Have Accessories

Protect your face and don’t be afraid to let your sunglasses be the main event. Choose from aviator, cat eye, oversized, or round frames. Don’t be afraid to wear colored frames.
