Read on and get ready to test the style waters…
We love a proper pool partaaaay – think banging beats, frozen margs, dancing and lots of fun. Now, whilst the concept of being by the pool may think you need to go low key and waterproof, when it comes to a proper pool party that would make Vegas blush, it’s all about dialling up the glamour and looking as if you’re heading on a night out…even if it’s in your bikini. Our Lora jumpsuit in sky blue is the perfect glamorous throwover to get you going. Wear over your bikini with sky high stilettos, oversized sunnies, add our Oasis hairband to your slicked back locks and pile on the gold jewellery with the Astrid & Miyu Twisted Mini Hoops. When the time comes you can slip out of the jumpsuit to reveal your bikini, but keep your accessories strong to ensure you look like you could nip from the pool to the bar in an instant.
We love our local lidos, especially if they come complete with quirky beach hut changing rooms for a nostalgic feel. Now a lido is definitely more laid back so this is where you can combine comfort with style. Wear our super soft Shari shorts over your swimsuit before layering on our Lorrie shirt. Sheer enough to showcase your swimwear but covered up enough to make you feel comfortable all day. Keep it casual and pair with thick chunky white sandals, a woven bag and wear your hair in loose waves. Add a pair of cat eye sunglasses and your sunbathing style will instantly look elevated.
Member’s Club Cabana
If you’re lucky enough to be heading to a rooftop pool that’s for VIPs only, then you need to up your style to ensure you’re cabana ready. Our Darla dress with its vivid tropical inspired Gerbera print is perfect for slipping over an effortlessly chic black bikini. Wear your hair long, straight and tucked behind your ears and add a pair of oversized black sunglasses. Keep your accessories simple – we love a barely there black sandal and Astrid & Miyu’s Crossing Lines Hoops as a finishing touch. Stick to a negroni cocktail and you’ll fit in perfectly – even if that exclusive black card access is courtesy of a friend!
Have you ever swum in a wild lake? Invigorating and truly revitalising, getting back to nature is the perfect way to restore and revive your vibe. If you’re heading to a festival with lakes or have a staycation planned where you can enjoy a swim in the beauty of your surroundings, then it’s all about a practical yet pretty outfit that you can throw over your swimwear and go. Our Janine Dress with its vivid orange red hue is the ultimate cover up for when you long for adventure. Wear with white sneakers and aviator sunglasses, tie your hair into a high pony and get ready to explore.
A spa with a pool is perfection for when you need that extra touch of R&R. if you’re nipping between a massage, facial and soaking up the sun by the pool at a spa retreat, then it’s all about a decadent robe that you can slip in and out of. Our Emma Silk kimono style dressing gowns look amazing worn over a bikini or swimsuit. Pair with fluffy slippers, keep your hair tied back in a low pony and you’re ready to wow.
