A few years ago, I found this helpful guide on WikiHow on how to really bring your A-game to a pool party. It’s pretty much become my pool party manifesto, I follow it religiously. This is the kind of thing that should be taught in schools.
- Carry a cute beach bag, stripes or polka-dots are best.
- Put on a bikini or swimsuit that looks good on you.
- Have a funky beach towel to lie on and make it quite big, as other people might want to chat and sit on your towel.
- Cover up with summery layers. Try a cute skirt/wrap or short shorts over your swimsuit. You could also try a little bolero or string top over your swimsuit.
- Put on some waterproof mascara if you want.
- Make sure you shave before you go.
- Get summery beach hair by encouraging natural waves. Take a shower, put in some hair gel or hair spray, and scrunch your hair. You can also get curl cream.
- Accessorise! Try to avoid loose jewellery though, you don’t want it to fall off. Try some glittery hair clips, earrings, and any other jewellery that you don’t mind getting wet. Big bracelets are cool.
- Have a hot pair of shades! Try to wear some designer sunglasses if you have the money. If not, there are plenty of cheaper imitations of the real deal. Always get big, chunky ones.
- Don’t forget your sunscreen! Try a spray on - they go on easier AND give your skin a nice shimmer/shine! Sometimes a scented sunscreen like coconut can be fun, and will be pleasant relief from the regular smell.
- Wear a cute pair of flip-flops.
- Make sure everything - Swimsuit, Sunglasses, Towel, Beach Bag, Nail Polish, Jewellery, and Flip-Flops - are all in BRIGHT, summery, and funky colours. You’ll be a total beach babe!
- Get out there and socialise!

Barak London SS19
London-based brand, Barak London, creates clean yet vibrant collections, combining the elegance of British sartorial heritage with an edge of cross-cultural cool to present a casual-luxe aesthetic.
A seamless balance between classic and modern elements achieves an effortless street-style finish. Barak references British heritage designs while offering a contemporary hit through creative pattern cutting and minimalist silhouettes.
A sophisticated neutral colour palette of sand and muted greens is accentuated by crimson, fresh blues, and mellow browns that draw from the natural hues of the Egyptian countryside. The collection draws inspiration from Youssef Chahine’s 1969 film, AlArd — The Land.
Martial-styled outerwear gestures towards political themes, and structural, crop-sleeved blazers offer a refreshingly up-to-date take on classic menswear staples that can be worn with ease. Linen and cotton form the foundation of the collection, which adds softness to the functional tailored style. Additional elements of nappa leather, waxed cotton and light merino wool provide an aesthetic contrast while retaining the lightweight elegance of the garment’s construction.
