What to Wear to A Pool Party

what to wear to a pool party

I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite type of parties is a pool party. Even if no swimming is involved, sipping cocktails poolside is always so fun. Actually, these days,  I prefer a pool party where I don’t need to actually swim. Whether it’s a party for kids or an adults-only soiree around the pool, a pool party is the pinnacle of summer, and I hope to attend lots of them now that it looks like we can once again safely gather outdoors. Since we’re getting dressed again, it’s also  the perfect excuse to have fun with your summer wardrobe. In fact, gathering inspiration for pool party outfits might be my favorite task I’ve done for you guys yet.

It’s funny because it sounds like you guys are going to a lot of pool parties. I don’t get invited to that many tbh, but pool party outfits is one of my most requested blog posts. You know I’m always trying to deliver on your requests, so I finally got this post together. It’s good too, because our club is doing some poolside celebrations this summer that I’ll need some pool party outfits for.

When deciding what to wear to a pool party, start by figuring out whether there will be swimming involved. If there, is, you’ll want to center your outfit around a bathing suit. Then add in a chic cover-up, incorporate your suit into your outfit like substituting a crop top for your bikini top, or spiff things up with a sundress, romper, or cute shorts.

Now, if you know you’re not swimming or the crowd seems way too sophisticated for those types of shenanigans and the pool is just a backdrop, it’s the perfect excuse to wear a gorgeous caftan, a cover-up that you’ve been saving because it’s way too nice for the actual pool, or a light sundress. Regardless of whether you plan to get wet or not, flat sandals are definitely key. It can get slippery, and the last thing you want is to fall in the pool. Personally, I say take advantage of any excuse to wear a dress sans heels, but if you want some height, I’d go with wedges or espadrilles since you’ll probably be spending the night standing on concrete or grass and you’ll want steady footing.
