Have you been invited to a summer pool party? Summer gatherings provide the perfect opportunity to show off your style and inner fashionista! You can exude confidence while wearing the trendy fashions for the perfect summer red carpet look—without the hassle and without breaking the bank! It gets no better than that!

Contrary to popular belief, your bathing suit is not the most important part of your summer pool party outfit. Your cover-up gives you the most room to show off your poolside stylistic flare! Since you’ll be socializing, dazzle those around you with something eye catching that will allow you to stand out amongst the rest. Select a bathing suit that you like and don’t be afraid to pair it with a bright and bold crocheted or sheer animal print cover up.


You can’t go wrong with a breezy, short dress in a lightweight fabric this summer season. Select a color that reminds you of refreshing summer drinks — lemonades, bright red fruit punch’s, or sweet-iced teas. Cotton and terry cloth and jersey knit make excellent poolside fabrics. You’ll be sure to be cool, calm and collected while basking in the summer solstice. You want a dress that will feel light as the wind blows around your ankles.

With such variety, who said shoes couldn’t be cute and sexy? Select a complementary color for your shoes, such as silver and gold tones. Let your feet shine brighter than the sun, and walk tall taking pride in the way you look. My favorite summer shoes this season is the wedge heel—look lean and tall with this look despite height! The comfortable option will tie your entire outfit together. Dresses up or dressed down, pair a floral pattered wedge heel with a white linin dress and vintage pendant necklace for a sweet and flirty look! Allow your shoes to have a little style of their own and strut your stuff for all to admire!

Leave the goggles and snorkel mask at home. Pin up your hair and tuck in a comb with a faux tropical flower attached or a row of rhinestones. Add a simple, colorful beaded necklace. You don’t have to wear expensive jewelry to the pool or the beach to look absolutely fabulous! Dare to be glam, because I believe you can never be to chic.
Don’t turn down a great opportunity to socialize this summer. You don’t have to bare all to show off your style. Feel confident in what you are wearing and most importantly, have fun!
