Go Flirty And Feminine 

Embrace the power of pink to bring the fun to any summer pool party. The vibe of the watermelon hue of the Warm Red Firenze Beads Tri Parallel Bikini offers a sophisticated, yet playful twist on the youthful color. The opaque crepe texture fabric adds an ultra-luxe appeal to traditional triangle bikini top. Pair it with the Coral Braid Caftan for a contrast in color, while still embracing a casual, cheerful vibe. Add an armful of delicate gold or silver bangles for a hint of sparkle. 

If you’re loving the vibrant color bikini trend as part of your pool party attire, but want a variation on the pink-ish hue, the Coral Firenze Belle Bikini provides just as much of a stylish punch. The bandeau bikini with off-the-shoulder, pleated ruffle straps is a sweet and sexy option that’s flattering for all body types.

And, as a sweet alternative, the watercolor-inspired pattern and ultra-soft textured fabric of swimsuits from the Artsy Collection embrace a modernized camouflage trend. The analogous, vibrant colors are what make this swimwear stand out, with plenty of variety to change the overall look. The attention to detail on the tops, straps, and bottoms bring another element of style to a pattern that can be considered a new go-to for pool party attire. Classic color staples like black and white will always be on-trend, but embracing different shades of pink may be the new standard that shakes things up.

Let Loose With A Bold Print

The wonderful thing about prints is you can use them to mimic your mood. Animal prints may inspire you to feel fearless. Stripes may make you feel effortlessly chic. But every once in a while, it feels good to be completely carefree. As far as pool party outfits go, there’s not a print comparable to the Monet Ripple Bikini. The gorgeous blend of colors alone is enough to make anyone party-ready. 

The mix of electric blue, sea green, coral, and light pink looks like a work of art, one that’s comfortable to wear season after season. The feminine scalloped edge of the triangle top and classic cheeky bottoms are a solid combination that will never go out of style. The print will stay fresh in a timeless way. Additionally, with an eye-catching pattern like this, it’s easy to layer on solid colors to create the perfect summer outfit. 

Slip on a black maxi skirt or a maxi dress and pair it with your favorite beach sandals. Pair with white denim shorts and a breezy, white button-down blouse for the ultimate summer style or all white beach outfit. When a swimsuit has such a significant print as this one does, it’s easy to create multiple looks using it as the central focus.

If you can’t get enough of this bold print, the Winnie Long Dress is an optimal choice as one of your pool party outfit ideas. The wrap-style drape dress with ties at the waist and slit on the front amp up the fashionable edge of this one-of-a-kind design. It’s loose, comfortable, and sweetly stylish all wrapped into one, which makes for excellent pool party attire.

Feel Fierce And Fiery In Red

If you want only one new swimsuit to add sizzle to your current collection, it has to be a stunner in red. One of the most flattering long-time favorites is the Red Pepper Milano Liz One Piece. Who says only bikinis get to take center stage?

This silhouette of this unique swimsuit is sophisticated and classy and will make a huge fashion statement wherever you go, making it a strong contender to become your new favorite swimsuit.. The stunning, red hot color speaks for itself and the deep V neckline and ruffle detailing on the top is a lovely combination. The vertically ribbed textures and soft, stretch fabric make it a must for any pool party, beach day, or vacation. Pair with the Vix Visor and a pair of beach sandals for a sophisticated and elegant look.

Or, wear a lightweight sarong or flowy pair of pants for extra coverage without taking away from the beauty of the color and detail this swimsuit has to offer. It’s an update to the one piece which has made this cut increasingly popular over the years. One piece swimsuits carry just as much style and flirty fun as bikinis and both should be part of any pool party outfit ideas

However, if you love the color of the one piece but want a bikini style to create even more options, then the Red Pepper Dune Luli Bikini or Red Pepper Dune Square Bandeau Bikini are both stunning choices. They each create a flattering silhouette with bottoms that sit low on the hips to help elongate the torso. Additionally, the neckline of both highlights the shoulders and provides comfortable coverage for all body types.

With a red-hot hue like this, you can’t go wrong no matter the style of swimsuit you choose. It’s an instant way to add an element of spiciness to any party. 

Embrace A Beachy Vibe

Loose, flowy fabrics plus a sea green color is the ideal combination for any pool party. You’ll look and stay cool in comfortable beachwear for any type of tropical temperature or atmosphere. The Lime Malia Caftan is a gorgeous option to wear when lounging by the water. It’s easy to slip on and off over your swimsuit throughout the day, especially if you want additional protection from the sun.

The gorgeous cobalt color of the Klein Nara Jumpsuit also delivers a beachy vibe with wide-leg bottoms with slits that create a light and airy feel. Plus, the flow of the fabric doesn’t overwhelm the body’s shape. It still creates a flattering silhouette that highlights the neck, shoulders, and waist. Wearing gladiator sandals or low-heel wedges are is a fashionable pairing with this jumpsuit. Add on a delicate hoop or dangly earrings with the hair pulled back for a beautiful, but easy-to-assemble look. Finish off the look with your favorite sunnies or a pair of rectangular black sunglasses to complete the look and leave everyone staring. 

Both caftans and jumpsuits are the ideal resort wear cover-ups for pool parties. They offer the opportunity to go from relaxing near the water to shopping, dining, or heading out to enjoy the nightlife without having to pack an entire outfit change. Having a few key essentials in your pool bag makes all the difference if you have multiple activities planned throughout the day. 

Creating The Ultimate Swimwear Wardrobe

There’s no need to replace all of your old swimsuits, but when the pool party invites start rolling in, it may be a prime time to take inventory of what you have, what you want to replace, and what you want to keep. Solid colors will always be in style, but are there any missing from your current collection? Would a flirty pink or vibrant red bikini be just what you need to liven things up?

Also, consider your swimsuit cuts. Do you typically rely on one particular style? Think about switching it up in a modern way. For example, if you are prone to triangle bikinis, opt for a one piece in a bold print or color to elevate your choices. Once you have a solid lineup of swimsuits to choose from, then consider add-ons. This includes cover-ups and bikini accessories

A caftan, sarong, jumpsuit, or all of the above are smart pool party outfit ideas readymade for warm-weather activities. Choosing at least a few in different colors or prints can be mix-and-matched with your swimwear. Also, make sure you have at least one pair of neutral resort sandals that can go with anything you wear. It pulls the look together without competing with other parts of your outfit. 

Finally, layer on accessories. Whether it’s a beach hat, a straw bag,  an armful of bangles, or a classic pair of hoop earrings, these extra touches increase the styling of any outfit with ease. When you have swimwear that is already showstopping, you don’t have to worry about much else to make your attire feel complete. 

It’s all about having fun with fashion and planning outfits depending on your mood and location. Step out in confidence and make any swimsuit trend uniquely your own when deciding what to wear to a pool party or any resort-style events.
