What to wear to a pool party?
June is a significant month. Can you figure out why? Of course, it's the official start of the summer season! And you're aware of what that entails, aren't you? It's time for beach picnics, backyard barbecues, and, of course, pool parties. The all-important question of "What the heck do I wear?" may be nagging at the back of your mind right now, but ISHINE365 has your back! We've compiled a short do's and don'ts dressing guide for all of the situations mentioned above, from the greatest BBQ-friendly ensembles to wear to today's focus: easy-breezy pool party clothes to try this summer.
What to wear to a pool party?
Finding the Perfect Swimsuit
Yellow striped swimsuit
Never leave the house in anything that you aren't comfortable in. Wear swimwear that makes you feel gorgeous and confident. We love teeny-weeny bikinis, especially when you're on vacation, but if you're not going to feel comfortable in it, wear something with a little more coverage. Nothing is hotter than confidence.
Swimsuits for Different Body types
Red Pareo and black dress
If you have a small chest, it can be challenging to find a suit that flatters your bust. A swim top with ruffles or embellishments to give the illusion of a bigger chest is the best bet for a gal with a petite chest. On the other hand, a suit with padding can serve to give you a little more. String bikinis are probably not your friend if you have a large chest: String bikinis are probably not your friend for the girls with the big girls. Underwire and cup sizes will provide you with the necessary support. Look for more oversized swimsuit straps and double-stitched bands for the most stunning results.
If you have a stomach pouch, then it is actually a lot easier to conceal a tummy than most people believe. A full-body swimsuit with ruching can effortlessly disguise your stomach. Any one-piece with a plunging neckline will also help maintain the focus on your upper body rather than your midsection.
If you have a compact, athletic body, then the goal here is to create the illusion of more curves, which thankfully is easy to do with a swim top with cups, padding, and gathering, as well as vivid, colorful designs. Straight-across bandeaus, shapeless full-pieces, or boy-cut briefs will only accentuate your athletic form (unless, of course, that's what you want!).
Pool Party Attire: What to Wear
To attain the ideal pool party clothing, one must find the correct balance of sensual yet refined, beachy sensations without appearing overly effortful. Wear the following items:
Sandal or Wedge:
Wear a lovely wedge or sandal instead of your favorite pair of heels—anything else looks out of place. If you don't like wedges, charming strappy sandals can suffice for a more casual style. However, slipping on your favorite nude wedge might make your legs appear to be a mile long. So, pick your shoes wisely.
Cover-up or Maxi dress
You don't want to show up at the pool party wearing only your swimsuit. Wear a flowy maxi dress or cover-up that you can easily toss on over your bikini and take off when you're ready to jump in the pool. Keep in mind that it can get quite hot in the summer, so you don't want to be too hot in your clothes. The important words to remember are light and breezy.
Cornelia Crochet Ocre
As previously stated, you should avoid over-accessorizing with heavy jewelry. Wear modest earrings and tiny jewelry that complements your clothing instead. If you want to wear a stylish body chain, keep it simple, and that's why ISHINE365 has the perfect options for you to pick at jewelry (ishine365.com). You may not be sitting around the pool all day reading a novel, but you are still at a pool, so save your favorite statement pieces.
Tote for the Beach
In the summer, it gets hot. So, if you're going to a pool party, don't forget to bring all of the summer essentials, such as sunscreen to protect your skin, a hat to protect your head, and water to stay hydrated. You obviously don't want to go into the party balancing all of these items in your arms, so invest in a nice beach tote.
What not to Wear to a Pool Party
Summer is, without a question, the best season for having a great time at the pool. However, if you are not appropriately dressed for the event, many might go wrong. That is why it is critical to adhere to the fundamentals of poolside etiquette to avoid unwanted attention from other guests. Whether you are hosting or attending a pool party, there are a few simple tips to follow if you want to make the perfect impression by avoiding wearing the incorrect item. No matter how much you want to, don't wear:
T-shirts in oversized sizes
T-shirts that reach your knees should never be worn to a pool party, let alone swimming. Always enter the pool without covering up your favorite swimsuit—and don't forget to apply plenty of sunscreens before and after you get in.
Bathrobes in Hotels
Okay, wearing your hotel bathrobe is just plain obnoxious. It demonstrates that you are a thief and provides free publicity for the last hotel you stayed at. Instead, wear something more casual that doesn't scream, "I steal more than little bottles of shampoo!"

Bags made of leather
You should never bring anything made of leather to a pool party unless you want to destroy an expensive purse or pocketbook when your best friend does a surprise cannonball. You can still look fantastic with a great beach tote that effortlessly accommodates items such as sunscreen, a towel, and valuables.
High heels are an absolute no-no, by the H2O. What if you trip and fall on your way to the chaise lounge? That's not good. Choose waterproof sandals to make walking on the slick wet ground more manageable.
If you use too much perfume, you risk being mauled by frenzied mosquitos once the sun goes down. Instead, use a small amount of your favorite scent sparingly and enjoy the night without itching.
