Make a Splash with these Pool Party Styling Ideas


July has officially arrived, and with it: popsicles, parades, and, you guessed it, pool parties! Today, our ModStylists are here with three takes on pool party styling so you can keep your cool while rocking hot style!


LAYER BY LAYER – Arrive at your next pool party in style by layering a bright a-line skirt over your one piece. ModStylist Chelsey’s look can even be transitioned into a night of dancing. Add comfy sandals, a statement towel, and chic sunnies to give the look a pool-ready pop!

On Chelsey:
Saved by the Swell One Piece in Black
Sunflower Sunset Skirt
Bow to Stern Scarf in Black Dots
Maritime to Shine Sandal in White
Glint on the Horizon Sunglasses
Biological Reasoning Bath Towel



HOST WITH THE MOST – ModStylist Kelly suggests sporting a cute apron over your favorite whimsical frock (the Dressed to Grill Dress is perfect!) for a party host look that will turn heads. Serve up drinks in style with cute glassware, such as the Juice Stop By Glass Set. ModStylist Kelly’s look assures that she is having as much fun as her guests!

On Kelly:
Dressed to Grill Dress
Deck Designer Sandal in White
Goodie, Goodie, Raindrops Apron
Crocus Ruckus Sunglasses
Steak with Me Spatula
Juice Stop By Glass Set


PARTY HOP TO IT – Pool party by day, BBQ by night? Create a look that works for both by disguising your bikini with a crop top and skirt. Keep the look bright and fresh by adding a statement bag and colorful wedges. ModStylist Jess’ look keeps her staying cool as her weekend calendar fills up!

On Jess:
Bathing Beauty Two Piece in Emerald
Just as I Dot Skirt
Diggin’ On You Top
Girls Magenta Have Fun


About Julie O.

A lover of all things vintage and vintage-inspired, Julie bought her first 1950s frock in the fifth grade. Since then, Julie has become a self-described connoisseur of vintage and thrift shopping, which she shares on her blog, Orchid Grey. When she’s not scouring the racks for the perfect vintage skirt, this native New Englander can be found deftly navigating the slopes of a ski mountain, taking road-trips to the beach, and exploring new places with a vintage camera in her hand.
