Dressed up Fridays: Prepped for the pool

The unmistakeable sweltering heat these days may not come to anyone’s surprise. So apart from binging on cold-pressed juices and staying inside the air-conditioned vicinity of your office during lunchtime on Fridays, why not go for a dip in a pool to chill out? Here’s how you can take your Friday workwear from the office to the poolside stylishly:

We can’t get over how chic this ‘Mira’ swimsuit from Lisa Marie Fernandez is. From its flirty, off-shoulder ruffle overlay to its bonded stretch fabric that guarantee to flatter, this number is perfect for a pool-lounge and as a top paired with a skirt or trousers.

To complement the airy breezy vibe, wear a pair of wide-legged trousers (because a maxi skirt is too predictable) from Ralph Lauren. Its cream shade is a luxe spin to your ruffled one-piece swimsuit. 

Next, a wide-brim floppy hat such as this hand-woven straw sunhat from Sensi Studio should always be incorporated in any beach/poolside getaway. Put it aside while you’re in the boardroom, but bring it on to shade your peepers from the blazing sunrays as you’re lounging on the deckchair.

The next mandatory accessory on your list? A pair of ultra-chic sunglasses courtesy of Céline’s bevel round pair with black and orange acetate frames. Put this on for a retro spin to your getup, and to make sure you don’t have to squint 24/7 by the pool.

An even more retro flavour to your ensemble? This ultra quirky, Bauhaus-inspired leather slingback, peep-toe mules from Roger Vivier adds all the necessary colours your outfit needs. 

Use a lightweight sunscreen on your skin to prevent it from being tacky. Kosé Sekkisei Sun Protect Essence Gel provides lasting hydration care along with high UV blocking power to reduce photo-aging signs – just what you need to bring along in your tote bag.
