Ah yes. We are counting down the days for the pool opening soiree we already have planned as soon as Memorial Day rolls around. If you’re on the lookout for options to wear on your pool party event, these are some pointers you might want to keep in mind before selecting the right swimsuit:
1. Who’s coming – the choice of bathing suit for a get-together obviously depends on who will be there. Is this a family event? Or a group of 20-something friends? If you’re going to a cookout at your mother-in-law’s pool, you may want to steer away from the brazilian cut swimsuits. A good recommendation for a sophisticated contemporary look is the Audrina Plum Monokini by L Space Swimwear. However, a meet-the-parents pool party shouldn’t limit your choices to a one-piece or monokini swimsuit. You might opt to go with a hipster bottom two-piece like the Sassy Sienna by OndadeMar Vintage.
2. Location – Is the fiesta being held at a friend’s backyard pool or at a rooftop hotel venue? If it’s a cocktail party at your best friend’s destination wedding resort, you may want to try choose a suit with elaborate embellishments or detail. A good recommendation is the Bendito Biscuit by Agua Bendita Swimwear. This bikini’s sequins detail and couture loop embellishment at straps will give you a chic and luxurious look, perfect for mingling at a trendy hot spot. Precisley why the editors at Sports Illustrated featured it in this year’s Swimsuit Edition.
3. Time of day – Is the event a lunch thing that ends around 4pm or an evening party that starts before sunset? While a day pool party event may certainly deserve a decked out trendy bikini, a night pool party event may warrant it. If you’re into sophisticated boho chic style, you may want to consider the Super T Halter by True Religion Swimwear. The branded u-shaped stitching and ring detail will make you bee line your way into the best-dressed pool party list. Also, if you’re lounging by the pool before getting in the water you may also want to try pairing your suit with a beach cover-up. An option to consider: the Bia Jersey Dress by Vix Swimwear. With black solid, ruching, and hardware detail this cover-up could turn into a night dress with some heels.
