No one can pass up time spent poolside when the sun is shining and the temperatures have warmed up, but what to wear to a pool party? Whether it’s the kick-off to summer or a tropical vacation, being pool-ready is a must year-round. You never know when an impromptu soiree invite will head your way.
It’s likely you have a wide selection of favorite swimsuits that have lasted you throughout the years, such as a classic black bikini or a neutral print one piece swimsuit, but is it time to spruce up your new bikini collection? Need fresh colors and trendy patterns? Want to mix it up based on your event or destination? We have you covered with our luxury designer swimwear. Take inventory of your swimwear wardrobe and accessories and start planning your ultimate pool party outfits.
Go Flirty and Feminine
Embrace the power of pink to bring the fun to any summer pool party. The feminine vibe of the bubblegum pink hue of the Brigitte Pink Beads Bikini offers a sophisticated, yet playful twist on the youthful color. The beaded details on the top straps and bottom strings elevate the look from a traditional triangle bikini top. Pair it with the Pink Liz Pant for a contrast in patterns, 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 of this bikini trend, but want a different cut to choose from, the Brigitte Pink Georgia Bikini provides just as much of a stylish punch. The bandeau bikini and single-shoulder strap keeps things sexy while providing more coverage. The high cut on the bottom elongates the legs to create a streamlined silhouette that’s flattering for all body types.
As a sweet alternative, the dusty rose pink and ultra-soft textured fabric of the Pink Scales Margot Bikini embraces boho chic. The details are what make this swimsuit stand out. The fine-scale construction and ruffled detail on the top, straps, and bottom sides bring another element of style to a color that can be considered a new neutral for pool party attire. Classic color staples like black and white will always be on-trend, but a shock of pink may be the new standard that shakes things up.
Let Loose with a Bold Print
The beautiful thing about prints is that 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 awhile, it feels good to be completely carefree. As far as pool party outfits go, there’s not a print comparable to the Bella Tied Shoulder 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 sweet tie straps 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 and pair 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 Bella Lyssa Short Dress is an optimal match to wear over it as one of your pool party outfit ideas or paired with another swimsuit staple you already have. The beach dress can be worn on its own, rather than a layering option, if you don’t plan to get in the water at all. The parallel straps and tie waist accentuates the shoulders and waist. 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 favorites from the New Arrivals Collection 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. The stunning, red hot color speaks for itself and the deep V neckline and ruffle detailing on the top is a lovely combination. The vertical 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 Paula Bikini or Red Pepper Bia Tube 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 halter style top on both highlights the neckline 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 Tahiti Mali 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 Tahiti 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 a fashionable pairing with this jumpsuit. Add on delicate hoop or dangly earrings with the hair pulled back for a beautiful, but easy to assemble look.
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 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 choices 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, 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.
