What to Wear to a White Party! The Pool Party Edition.

We have officially reached peak summer! And you know what that means, don’t you? Everyone is looking for any excuse to be by the water. White parties are popular for summer because, well, we all know white looks great with a tan. With a pool party invitation comes the inevitable, ‘What do I wear?’ Add in a white theme and there can definitely be some head scratching as you come up with an outfit that is chic, on-theme and ready for the pool.

Our round-up today includes a selection of casual-chic looks that are simple, stylish and poolside-friendly. There’s also a selection of Instagram-ready white pool floats for adults by Funboy, Swimline and Loteli that will get people in the water quicker than a New York heatwave. 

Fresh white swimsuits look amazing with a tan, but they do have the reputation for transparency. Look for lined suits or mix it up with accents of black and other darker colors. A crisp white cover up over a white bikini is an easy outfit. Add espadrille slides, tassel earrings and a cute white clutch purse to take your outfit from day to night. For the guys, a panama hat and some shades will elevate your poolside style and keep the sun out of your eyes.

As for décor, we’re loving 100% cotton Turkish towels as they are so lightweight. Pair them with some unbreakable wine glasses (in white, of course) for an elegant poolside set-up.
