Party By The Pool
BY Ruwandi Perera
No one’s too cool for the pool and that’s why it’s always a happy place to be in! And then you’ve got poolside or beachfront fashion, which gives you the chance to be as casual as you’d like while keeping things elegant, sexy and stylish.
‘Poolside’ doesn’t only mean wearing swimwear – although bikinis and swimsuits will always be in!
Choose cute summer dresses with beach hats and shades to bring out your inner Barbie, or go vintage with high waist shorts and perhaps a crop top.
Don’t underestimate the charm of classic denim cutoffs to wear with your swimsuit or a little white T-shirt. And don’t ignore the power of a two-piece outfit that shows off your confidence and curves!
Then there are the favourites – kimonos and cover-ups that can elevate even the plainest one-piece swimsuit to be ‘runway ready.’
Poolside also means that you can be carefree with your hair. But if you’re not too keen to let humidity get in the way, opt for a casual bun or ‘no fuss’ hairstyle.
And don’t shy away from accessories – this is your chance to ‘go all mermaid’ with bright and bold colours.
It’s best to go makeup free or use a little lipstick but it’s essential to wear and keep applying sunscreen. Kick off those heels (literally!) and make your way in style to have some good old poolside fun!
