Summer’s here, which means that the pool party season has arrived! Prepare for the invitations to start flooding in! As you get yourself organized for that all-important first party of the season, you’ll be wondering which of this year’s extensive swimwear range is the coolest (or the hottest) to be seen in and what to wear with it. Well look no further, we’ve got the 5 essential elements of your pool party look covered right here:
There’s such a great selection of swimsuits to choose from this season that you’re sure to find something to flatter your shape, but do think carefully about what’s appropriate for the party you’re attending. Does the invitation specify a theme? Will your friends’ parents be there? Are there any games planned? Your eye-popping skimpy bikini may not be the most appropriate choice for a family party, and you don’t want any wardrobe malfunctions if you’re planning a game of water polo. This year’s 50s-style swimwear is an ideal choice as it’s right on trend, modest enough to wear if kids or older relatives are present, and sturdy enough to avoid any embarrassing mishaps when playing party games.
When it’s time to eat or when the sun goes down, you’ll need something to slip on over your swimwear. A sarong is a classic and versatile choice which you can wear to cover up completely or just from the waist down. Soft jersey beach dresses, tunics or kaftans are also fashionable, easy-to-wear choices when you want to exude casual, effortless style.
On wet surfaces you need sensible footwear, but take heart – sensible doesn’t mean sacrificing style. Funky flip-flops or low, strappy sandals are ideal or, if you refuse to be seen without your heels, opt for some trendy wedges or espadrilles.
Don’t go overboard on jewelry, especially if you’re wearing embellished swimwear, and whatever you do steer clear of metals that could tarnish in chlorine and leave a nasty green residue on your skin. Colored plastic bangles are a good option if you want to add a little extra touch to your outfit. A wide-brimmed floppy hat will protect from the sun and complement that 50s glamour look perfectly, and you can finish off the look with the essential retro sunglasses.
- Hair & makeup
We’d recommend opting for a natural look in both departments. A tinted moisturizer with sunscreen is perfect to protect your skin and even its tone, while a dab of colored lip balm, also with SPF protection, is the perfect choice for luscious lips. If you are going for mascara and liner, don’t forget to make sure it’s waterproof! Let’s face it, there’s no sense in over-styling your hair when you’re going swimming, so slick it back with sun protecting spray or wash and braid the night before for tumbling waves that provide the perfect look for the pool.
