It might be mid-winter, but summer time isn’t that far off. And that means beach time, vacation time and pool time. And pool time means summertime fashions. Are you ready?
You know you need a new swimsuit. That’s a given. But what about the rest of your poolside wardrobe? Do you have the things you need to look hot and stay cool when the weather heats up and the evenings are long? If you’re not sure, here are the top ten must-have pool wear trends for this summer.
10. A swim suit that fits and flatters
Before you continue reading about the Pool Wear Trends there is a special announcement we would like to share with you. Catalogs.com has negotiated special medicare rates for our vibrant community of seniors. If you are over the age of 60, you can head over to our Seniors Health Section which is full of information about medicare. All you need is your zip code and a few minutes of your time to potentially save 100s of dollars on your medicare bills.
Anyone can put on a bathing suit. But not all of those swimsuits will fit well. And a lot of them really don’t flatter, either. If you’re falling out of the top, spilling over the bottom, or squeezing out in the middle it’s time to look for a new, more appropriate swimsuit before summer arrives. One of today’s hottest swim suits trends is smart fabric that fits comfortably, and yet can make any woman look slimmer and trimmer just by putting it on. Now isn’t that worth a shopping trip?
9. A soft, feminine saroong
When you take a break from the water, wrap yourself in the soft beauty of a saroog. Much more feminine than a plain old cover-up, a saroong can take you from a simple poolside chat to a pool party under the summer moon.
8. A cool and shady hat
Protecting your hair and face with a hat doesn’t have to mean ruining your summer look. In fact, one of the hottest pool wear trends is to sport a cool straw hat or a floppy hat in shades to match your suit, sarong or summer outfit.
7. The coolest sunglasses
Yes, sunglasses are practical. After all, you want to be able to see well when the years start to add up. But let’s be honest… the real reason you’re sporting those shades is because they just look so cool! Add several pairs to your summer wardrobe so you’ll have the right pair for every outfit. And if you wear readers, add a pair of sunglass readers to your bag — you’ll protect your eyes, look cool and still be able to enjoy that new novels
6. Sexy sandals
You gotta love sandals. I mean, what else can do so much for our poolside look and still feel so amazingly comfortable? This a trend that thankfully shows no sign of ending. And when it comes to summer sandals, one pair is definitely not enough! Treat yourself to a pair of flats, a pair of sexy high-heeled sandals and a couple in-between. That should be enough to at least get you started on your summer look!
5. A post swim warm-up
Even in the middle of summer, you can get chilly after a swim. But forget about donning those old sweats, because this year’s trend is for cute and feminine warm-ups for after swim or late evenings at the beach.
4. Board shorts, girl style
There are a lot of great things to say about board shorts. They’re comfortable and easy to slip on. But until now, pretty was NOT one of the ways you could describe them. Thankfully, one of this year’s pool wear trends is board shorts in a more feminine cut and pretty materials. Pair them with a colorful tank and a pair of sandals for a cool and breezy look around the pool.
3. Soft, pretty sundresses
Sundresses never, ever go out of style. And thank goodness for that. Who doesn’t feel pretty and alluring in a soft white or pastel sundress with just the right amount of shape? A sundress is perfect for casual socializing poolside, when sitting your swimsuit just doesn’t feel right. If you’ll be out when day turns to evening, throw a coordinating pashmina into your bag to keep shoulders warm when the sun goes down.
2. Wave-making accessories
No matter how cute your swimsuit might be, you won’t be rocking that sexy bathing beauty look if you forget the trend-setting touches that take your look over the top. Today’s swimwear accessories run the gamut from graphic temporary tattoos to pushup bras and retro swimcaps … and look awesome when you climb out of the water.
1. Sunscreen rules
Popular Savings Offers
It doesn’t matter what the style mavens say about bathing suit styles or hats or cover-ups, the one absolutely unchanging trend in pool wear is a good dose of sunscreen. Use it often and use it every time you head for the pool. Because when it comes to looking great at the pool, your skin is the one thing you can’t replace next season.
