Life is full of ups and down and after having a stressful week dealing with the traffic jam, nagging neighbors, and unbearable bosses as you try to make ends meet, the best thing you can do to rejuvenate yourself is to head to a spa or pool and it becomes even better when you receive a pool party invitation. Unfortunately, many are the times when we turn down such opportunities because of the perception we have that we might not look cool at the party. Are you in that category? If yes, you are among millions of people with the same fear but you don’t have to fear anymore as we will give you three ways to look cool at a party pool.
1. Decide what to wear
After receiving a pool party invitation, the first thing that pops in your mind is that the pool will have people from all social classes and many people tend to turn the invite down because they might not look cool with what they decide to wear. However, you don’t have to stress yourself anymore because you can look cool by wearing something in style and color you love as it helps your confidence to shine through. Whether you love short shorts, board-length shorts, or tankini and shorts, go for what you love and if you think that you look cool, other people will see exactly what you see in yourself.
If you are the kind of people that can’t go without makeup and you’d want to look cool, keep your makeup simple because most of it will be washed off. As a rule of thumb, ensure that the makeup you choose is waterproof. Also, avoid fancy hairdo and go for a messy wavy look and for sure, you’ll look cool.
2. Acting cool
Did you know that the first thing to being cool at a pool party is having self-confidence? Well, I hope you now know. Confidence is all about believing in who you are and what you can do. For instance, you can have the confidence to meet new people or join in with the games other than hanging back on the sidelines. If you think that you are shy, take a deep breath and remind yourself how brave you are.
Also, be yourself throughout the party and if for instance, someone cracks a joke, laugh your heart out and don’t hold it back. In addition, remember that the pool party is organized for people like you to have fun and therefore, don’t limit yourself. Respect your inner child and if you think a huge pool float is the one that will make your day, go for it without minding what other people will think of you; after all, your happiness shouldn’t come at someone else’ expense. In fact, many people will see how fun floats are and will most likely join you.
3. Deal with essentials
If you want to be cool at a pool party, deal with essentials accordingly. For instance, you need a bag for your important things like mobile phone, keys and towel. Besides, you will want to change clothes and when the sun is unbearable, a hat will keep you cool. Most importantly, you may need to apply sunscreen to be comfortable, which you can do before the party or during the party and it will ensure your skin is in good condition which will keep you cool.
