When the sun shines on my window pane, I just know I am ready for summer fun and all the festivities it brings along with it! As an East London girl, as soon as the heat rises there is one place me and my friends are headed - Shoreditch House for a pool party! And if you are lucky enough to have some mates with their own pool, then you know where you have to be this summer!
Pool Party Outfit Ideas
Are you as hyped about summer as me, but know your wardrobe is in need of a strong reset? Then have a lil scroll through some of my suggestions to get your summer in full swing.
What I find the most difficult is deciding what type of pool party guest i'm trying to be. Do you want to be parked at the poolside chilling, or diving deep headfirst into the water? Also, of course it depends on the type of pool party you're attending - is it a keep it chic vibe or wild in the waters type of affair. Whatever the vibe there are so many styles to fit the occasion!
Full Piece Swimsuits
If you see yourself as the type that doesn't jump straight, but want a style that can take you from poolside to pool dive then swimsuits are just the thing you need. Swimsuits are super versatile and look super cure doubled up as a top with a cool pair of high-waisted denim shorts.
Cream of the Crop
Being from the UK, we are always aware that the weather can take a turn super quick. I will always have some cute cover up styles with me to ensure I still look chic, yet keep out any chill. For me crop tops are the perfect style for this!
In muted pastel tones or silky styles, these are an absolute dress trend for the summer. I love that as the name connotes they are easy to slip into which makes them great for pool side settings. You can throw a casual dress over a bikini, keeping you cool in the sun’s heat and covered whilst you hit the streets on route to the party.
I love a good strappy sandal as a simmer time shoe! Again depending on the pool party style there are different sandals. My go to shop has always been Ted Baker for a selection I love - I can opt for a flat strappy type for the more causal and active party, and add a little heel height for those chic affairs.
All White Everything
In the summer, white is the new black and I live for this tone! This colour keeps you cool in the sun and always looks super chic. Want to make your tan pop a bit brighter? Then all white everything is the way forward!

Don't Forget to Accessorise
If you're you're not actually planning to get into the water, then of course this is the perfect opportunity to show off your new sunnies and jewellery. If you're wearing a bikini or swimsuit, you can show off a pair of tassel earrings or stand-out jewelry against your skin - I think it's a winning look.
