what to wear to a pool party

Summer is all about being cool and expressing your personality in ways that the fall and winter seasons just won’t allow you! And what better way to sport those hightop sneakers or huge bamboo earrings than during a dope pool party bash?


If you want to look your flyest at the next event, check out my top five looks to wear to a pool party.

1. 90’s Fly Girl


Pool parties are all about chilling by the pool and looking fabulous while doing so–and maybe scoping out a few cuties and sipping on a few cocktails. If you are in the mood to let your personality speak for itself, play around with a few 90’s staples like overalls, Chuck Taylors and playful hats to create a fun, cute vibe during the pool party scene!

2. Chic Queen


Are you guilty of going to a pool party just to show off your new summer sandals or your new gloriously cascading caftan? *Raises hand* I’m sure we all are! For those moments when you want to stay dry and dope on the sideline, try sporting a simply detailed swimsuit that complements your center piece, your cover up or caftan. Throw on a pair of chic sunnies and some killer heels and hit the door.

3. Sporty Spice


When in doubt, be graphic! Pool parties are supposed to be fun, so why not let your outfit do all the talking. This is where you can let your creativity shine bright. If you decide to mix your prints and colorful graphics, make sure to find one to two common colors in each piece (this will make sure that this look is carefree and not intentionally trying too hard). If you adore this sporty trend but unsure how to rock it, check out this post for more tips and tricks.

4. Miss Priss


Show off your feminine side this summer by playing with fanciful prints and watercolors. Channel your inner diva by throwing on a dramatic embellished or gold-plated sandal. Trust me, this will be the total showstopper!

5. Tropical Queen


Do not be afraid to play with different textures, colors, tropical prints or swim-friendly accessories with this look! After taking a dip in the pool, throw on your fringe kimono and flatforms because it’s time to enjoy the guests and amazing BBQ!
