Dressed to Party

fashion-cord 178

Of all the fashion-based dilemmas in life, what to wear to a summer party must be among the most difficult, due to the many factors that come into play. It’s a veritable minefield of environmental and aesthetic hazards.

2019 will be a summer of pool or beach parties. Maybe you’ve already booked a trip to some beach club festivities, or plan to stay local and rent a house with a pool somewhere out of the city, so you can throw a soiree with friends. But once you’ve finalised your plans you’ll need to pack some outfits. Swimsuits are pretty much a given, but what do you wear on top? Show up to your pool party all dressed up and get ready to eat, drink, and schmooze.

So if you’re on the hunt for a summer-ready party outfit, feel free to draw inspiration from ensembles: whether you’re going for cocktails or attending a garden party, there’ll be a look that suits you.
