Weekend Wardrobe: Pool Party Edition

Look 1: Beach Riot bikini, Bop Basics hat, Sol Sana sandals, Jules Smith earrings, Tory Burch tote. Look 2: Rag & Bone bikini, Tory Burch flip-flops, bluma project necklace, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Rag & Bone/JEAN shorts.

I recently bought a house that came with an addition I wasn’t entirely prepared for: a pool. Never having owned one before, my wardrobe is severely lacking in appropriate attire. After a significant amount of time browsing through the swimsuit selection, I narrowed it down to a pair of go-to looks.

A black bikini is eternally sexy—not to mention flattering—and works for any poolside occasion. And, when paired with flashy mixed-metallic accessories and a playful straw fedora, it gets an extra boost of glamour. Slather on the sunscreen, pour a glass of wine, and soak in the sun.

For days when the agenda is focused on swimming rather than sipping, a more supportive swimsuit is a must. After a few laps, distressed cutoff shorts, a colorful beaded necklace, and bright flip-flops complete the casual look with an carefree vibe.
