8 TIPS TO ELEVATE YOUR POOLSIDE STYLE:
1.) ALWAYS WEAR A HAT:
A hat keeps the sun off of your face and hides crazy beach hair which is why I ALWAYS wear a hat poolside. It’s such a great summer accessory! I just purchased this hat from Revolve and I’m finding myself wearing it a ton! I love the wide brim because it keeps the sun off of my face and the leather band adds a nice detail that makes this black straw hat a bit more unique. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly hat, this one is amazing, too. I personally love wearing a black hat over an ivory one since it’s a little edgy!
2.) ADD A NECK STACK:
If you know me, you know I’m always wearing stacked gold chains and necklaces to elevate my looks. A simple neck stack can make the biggest difference in your outfit because it accentuates the neck and makes your outfit look more luxe. I love this gorgeous gold neck stack from Revolve and wear it all year round because it goes with everything in my wardrobe!

3.) COVER-UPS ARE KEY:
Wearing a cover-up is key because it not only hides any challenge areas but it elevates any poolside look. A cover-up is an affordable way to make any poolside look appear more put together and elevated. I love wearing cover-ups to the beach and pool during the summertime and there are so many beautiful options at Revolve like this gold one and this black one. Also, there are so many different ways to wear a cover-up proving their versatility! This chic gold cover-up I’m wearing runs true to size, I’m wearing an XS.
4.) UP YOUR BEACH BAG GAME:
A beach bag is a functional way to elevate any poolside look because you can carry all your essentials in it as well as wear it as an accessory. I always make sure to choose a neutral-colored beach bag to ensure it matches all of my poolside ensembles. A beach bag is a must-have when it comes to summertime. I adore this one by Anine Bing, it’s incredibly chic and will literally go with everything!

5.) CHOOSE A FLATTERING SWIMSUIT STYLE BASED ON YOUR BODY TYPE:
ACCENTUATE YOUR BEST FEATURES: it’s important to know what your best features are and choose a swimsuit accordingly. Personally, my stomach is my best feature which is why I never wear one-pieces! Also, I love high-waisted bottoms which is all the rage right now which is why both swimsuits in the post are high-waisted bikinis. I’m wearing a medium in both tops and bottoms
CAMOUFLAGE YOUR CHALLENGE AREAS: I suggest covering up what you don’t love about your body if possible. For example, if you don’t love your stomach, then opt for a flattering one-piece. When in doubt, an all-black swimsuit will always make you look thinner, so choose a solid suit over a printed one. Also, choosing black over a crazy loud color will help you to look taller and thinner as well.
PRO STYLE SECRET: I always size up one size in bikinis so I can get a bit more coverage making them more age-appropriate.
6.) GET A HEALTHY-LOOKING SUMMER GLOW:
I use this tanning lotion all summer long and love it mixed with these tan luxe drops because it gives me the perfect summer glow! I can definitely say I’m never orange at all after using this lotion. It’s very natural looking and makes you look slimmer in your swimsuit at the pool or beach.
7.) ALWAYS OPT FOR A CORAL LIP:
I’ve been saying this for years and will say it time and time again, a coral lip is always the way to go, especially in the summertime. No matter what your hair color or your skin tone, a coral lip color will do you so many favors in the summertime. A pink or coral lip shade in the summer looks chic and beautiful for so many reasons! This coral lipstick and lip gloss from Revolve have been my two go-to shades for the season so far.
