Best Clothing Styles For Pool Parties

Styles and fabrics are major keys when getting ready for a pool party. You’ll want to go for lightweight and breathable fabrics like cotton, linen, or chiffon. These luscious fabrics feel fresh and keep you comfortable even on scorching hot days. Also, consider outfits that are easy to move in. Think flowy, easy-breezy and totally sexy fabrics.

By making thoughtful choices, you’ll def be more comfortable. Because restrictive clothing can make you feel closed off, and put a damper on your whole mood. And frankly, the last thing you want is to look like you’d rather be home. Right?

Remember – fabric matters! But, not all fabrics do. Try to keep the thick fabrics for those more posh occasions. Pool parties call for thin, flowy, flirty cuts that feel sultry and show skin.

It’s also important to consider the general vibe of the party, of course. Don’t go in wearing cut-off shorts and basic flip-flops when the occasion calls for a little more sophistication. Likewise, you don’t need to be too polished when the vibe is fun and casual. Who wants to stick out like a sore thumb anyways?! Especially if we didn’t read the room!

For a more sleek and chic look, opt for neutral-colored pieces. Neutrals are always on-trend and they are hella easy to wear, no matter the occasion. It’s good to note that light neutrals give understated elegance, while dark neutrals are ultra-chic and mysterious. 

Now to the best f*cking part: the OUTFITS!

Throw in some oversized sunglasses and a sun hat to protect you from the sun’s rays. We honestly stan for this Johvan Straw Sun Hat by American Hat Makers. You can take it a step even further with some cool leather bags and high heels to match your top. (Shop American-made purses & bags HERE!)
