Pool parties – the one thing that adds glamour to and offers respite from the summer heat. Pool parties combine all the fun elements of the season with cool water, drinks with little umbrellas in them and up-tempo music. We’re excited already. But there’s always that looming question: what do I wear?
Here’s our pick of trendy options that combine the chilled-out attitude of a pool with the glam quotient of a party.
Cool Off In An Off-shoulder Top
It’s sexy and we know it. The off-shoulder top is a classy option for a summer pool party. It shows off your shoulders allowing a sneak peak of your bikini without revealing too much. It’s got a delicate, feminine look that has a subtle kind of charm about it.
Layer Up With A Loose Tank
This is more than an airy, comfortable top. This is for the laidback woman who sways to her own rhythm. This top is ideal for layering as a swimsuit cover-up. You can team it up with a pair of shorts or a long, flowy skirt. A messy plait or a bun will go with the simple look.
Laze All Day In A Romper
We were thrilled when the romper realised its true potential was not just in being an outfit for toddlers. The romper combines the comfort of shorts and a tee with the adventure of a jumpsuit. Layer it over your bikini and slip into open sandals for the perfectly glamorous poolside look.
Sway In A Summer Dress
There are so many ways to go when choosing a dress. You might want to keep it light and flowy so that when the wind creates a Bollywood moment, you can toss your hair in slow motion. Just kidding! Choose a dress with fabrics that breathe, colours that pop and cuts that keep you feeling cool in the summer heat.
Bring It On With A Bralette
Another innovative idea would be to wear a longline bralette over your swimsuit and pair it with shorts. That way, you are always ready to jump into the water at a moment’s notice. Choose one with lace and you will be the centre of fashionable attention all day!
Now that you’ve found all your outwear options, how about choosing a sexy bikini that goes underneath?
