Summer is always a time for rest and relaxation, but the time off may be extra enjoyable as we finish another turbulent year dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. As there were few occasions to really dress up this past year, poolside fashion has stepped up its game. Here is everything you need to look your best poolside this summer! 

Sarongs have become everyone’s go-to swimsuit coverup. Quick, easy and chic, they allow you to show off your cute suit while still covering your bottoms. 

They’re the perfect accessory and come in various fun prints and bright colors. Whether you buy a pack from Amazon or invest in higher end pieces, there’s no way to go wrong when wearing a sarong.

Since tye-dye’s comeback during lockdown over a year ago, matching sets have grown more popular than ever. These sets work great as cover-ups, as they help you look put together while not being as boring as a traditional cover up. 

The latest trend, and my personal favorites, are the collared ones.They look relaxed yet composed.

Leather slides are the perfect alternative to the traditional—and often boring—flip-flop. They look chic and relaxed, are easy to slip on and off and offer much more support in case your day includes more walking than only from the pool to the lounge chair. Opt for brown slides instead of black; they’re much more versatile.

If leather slides seem a bit too formal for the pool, Birkenstocks are another great option. They come in a wide range of styles, colors and materials. With one-strap and two-strap options for varying support, basic neutrals and fun colors to match your outfit and the choice of the traditional hardwood or a more water-resistant plastic, there’s a pair for everyone. An added bonus is that the plastic ones are lightweight, making them the perfect addition to your weekend getaway bag.

Bucket hats are back! This fun accessory makes you stand out in a crowd of traditional straw-hat wearers, and they are much more comfortable than a baseball cap.

All of these pieces will make your look one to remember, whether you wear them to a Fourth of July barbecue or a lazy outdoor afternoon with friends.
