How to feel glamorous poolside
There really is no better way to cool off in the summer sun, than heading to the pool. Enjoying the freshness of the water and maybe even enjoying a few ice-cold drinks while you socialise and spend time with friends is a wonderful way to spend a hot day. But if you’re someone who likes to always look their best, or you’re hoping to take your personal style up a notch this year, then you might be wondering how you can keep looking glamorous at the pool – even if you choose to get your hair wet with chlorine!
In this post, we’ll explore how you can look and feel glam at the poolside, read on to find out more.
Invest In High-Quality Swimwear
Believe it or not, swimwear is a key piece in your wardrobe and just like with your other key pieces, it should be invested in. This is crucial to looking glam and put-together at the pool. When you invest in durable and reliable swimsuits and stylish bikini bottoms, you can be confident that they’ll retain their shape in the water, won’t go see through and will turn heads for all the right reasons. So, make sure that your chosen swimsuit is made from high-quality materials – remember, if you invest in a quality bikini, one-piece or even a monokini, the high-quality fabrics should last for summers to come – saving you money in the long run!
Find The Right Style
Choosing the right style of swimwear that suits your body can feel like a challenge, but with a little patience and experimentation, you’ll look a million dollars when you hit the pool! Always take your time when shopping for swimwear and try on various styles that are currently on-trend.
Explore which styles best suit your personality and the look you’re hoping to achieve. But don’t forget to take your body shape into account and focus on the areas of your body you want to accentuate. Are you hoping to keep things modest and elegant? Or are you looking for something a little more high-cut and alluring? From sporty zip front options to barely there, triangle string bikinis, make sure you try on plenty of options and you’ll find the look you need!
Be Mindful of Colours and Patterns
To look glamorous it's difficult to know whether you should stick with black or keep things bright and as jazzy as possible. When in fact, subtlety and a careful balance is the key to making you look glam and well put together at the pool. If you prefer block colours, then opt for something uncomplicated such as navy or white or if you would prefer a pop of colour choose a pattern that isn't “too much”. One of of the better ways to add colour to your swimsuit is to choose the right accessories, which we’ll look at in more detail next.
Don’t Forget Your Accessories
Some simple understated accessories are the perfect accompaniment to your gorgeous new swimsuit. You might not think that subtlety and glamour go together, but they do in fact work well. Consider a pair of statement earrings that compliment your swimsuit, some oversized sunglasses will work well to keep the UV rays at bay and help you achieve that Hollywood look, as well as an oversized hat. A pedicure and manicure will also go a long way to help you look and feel glam at the poolside.
