What Should I Wear to a Pool Party

by Angel

There are a couple of things to consider when picking out your outfit for the up and coming pool party.

Most pool parties are quite casual. Therefore, whatever you wear will most likely be casual. Also, you must consider if you are going to swim or not. This will affect not only your hair but makeup and what you wear as well. I have been to a few pool parties where no one got into the pool. That was kind of a bummer since there wasn't much fun to be had. Other than standing around talking. I would say that most invitations will tell you what kind of party it is. They will tell you to bring your bathing suit and towel if there is swimming going on. If you are swimming then this outfit is the easiest of all to accomplish. All you have to do is wear a stylish cover up and you have it taken care of.

Swimming and Still Looking Good

If you are swimming wear a very stylish cover up over your bathing suit as your attire for the party. Flip flops or sandals would work great. It might not hurt to wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet. It does happen. All of this attire fits right into what is going on and not too much thought is required. Your cover up should cover up most of your body. I would not get too skimpy unless you know these people really well.

Your hair should be as natural as possible (meaning not a lot of hairsprays or gels) and I would only wear waterproof mascara and lip gloss. The mascara should stay on even after a dip in the pool. You can reapply the lip gloss if needed.  

Tube Dress / Cover up

This beautiful tube dress can be worn as a summer dress or a swim suit cover up.  The neck strap is removable.  There is a huge selection of colors and designs available.  Fits sizes 3 -15 Juniors.

Sarong Cover up

This light weight and comfortable sarong cover up makes it super easy to get ready for the party. It is ideal for beaches, pools, and resorts.  

Black Tunic

This is by far my most favorite of the cover ups.  I think it is very stylish and still sporty enough to go to a pool party and have some fun.  It has detailed embroidery along the front and a very free flowing design.  Sizes available in S - XL.  Black is a great color too.

Halter Dress

A very stylish cover up with a v neck line and soft lightweight material.  This would look really good with silver jewelry around the neck.  Just remove before getting into the pool.

Havaianas Flip Flops

The party would not be complete without the best rubber flip flops in the world.  These flip flops are so comfortable and last forever.  Something as simple as this would look great with your cover up and swim suit.  

The Saress Beach Cover up

This long and elegant piece of clothing is perfect for a walk on the beach or an evening at a fun pool party.  There are no ties, no buttons, or fasteners.  Also, each one purchased comes with a beach handbag for putting your lotion, sunglasses, or keys in.  Sizes are available in S-XL.
