Strut Your Stuff
Bringing a bottle of rosé as a hostess gift is just an important as bringing your shoe game to an inevitable invite to a pool party. Arrive in style wearing a pair of Christian Louboutin’s. Ladies, strap up the Cataclou's platform wedge in blue denim, accented with twisted rope, red, white, blue and a few other hues accented with white studs. Gents, slip into the Nazapunta slip-on sneaker with red, white, blue print accented by a royal-blue spiked toe.

BYOB, Bring Your Own Bag
Plan ahead in case that pool party goes from day to night by bringing a change of clothes in a bag as fashionable as what’s inside. Pack them in a classic backpack from Prada. The technical fabric can withstand a little splashing (though we don’t recommended it) and the lightweight bags have ample storage room. Plus, they will allow you to be hands free to hold your mojito. For women, check out the royal blue, and for men, the navy. Find them at Prada, 180 NE 40th Street, (305) 438 2280

Burberry polo and chifon dress

Ladies, Burberry’s ivory polka dot silk chiffon dress is light, airy and will keep you looking and feeling cool. Gents, a classic polo makes for the perfect attire and Burberry’s polo shirt with contrast tipping detail is the perfect fit.  Find them at Burberrry, 112 NE 39th Street, (305) 423-0078.
