Swimwear: Make a Splash with Style
Choose swimwear that lets your true self shine! Show off your individuality with vibrant prints, bold patterns, or rainbow-inspired designs. From dazzling one-pieces to body-positive bikinis, find a style that makes you feel confident and fabulous. Don’t be afraid to express your personality through your swimwear choice!


Hat: Shade and Sass
Protect yourself from the sun while adding a touch of flair with a fashionable hat. Go for wide-brimmed sun hats, floppy straw hats, or sporty caps. Consider accessories like colorful scarves or headbands to elevate your poolside look. Find the perfect hat that complements your style and keeps you cool while turning heads.


Sunglasses: Glamour under the Sun
No poolside ensemble is complete without a pair of fabulous sunglasses. Choose frames that reflect your personality, whether it’s retro cat-eye, oversized aviators, or bold geometric shapes. Opt for colorful lenses, mirrored finishes, or gradient tints to add a dash of glamour to your pool party look.

Sunscreen: Protect and Pamper
Don’t forget the most important pool party essential: sunscreen! Protect your skin from harmful UV rays with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF. Consider using a glittery or scented sunscreen for an extra touch of fabulousness. Apply generously and reapply regularly to ensure you stay protected while enjoying the poolside festivities.

Waterproof Phone Pouch: Capture Memories Safely
Keep your phone safe and dry while documenting the pool party magic with a waterproof phone pouch. Capture memorable moments, share exciting updates on social media, and keep in touch with friends without worrying about water damage. This essential accessory allows you to enjoy the festivities worry-free, knowing that your phone is protected.

Statement Accessories: Go Beyond the Obvious
Take your pool party outfit to the next level with eye-catching accessories. Adorn your wrists with colorful pride bracelets, flaunt rainbow-themed anklets, or go for bold and vibrant statement necklaces. Don’t forget your body glitter, temporary tattoos, or even a mermaid tail if you’re feeling extra adventurous!

With this ultimate LGBTQ+ pool party survival guide, you’re ready to make a splash and have an unforgettable time.
