Poolside season is just around the corner and to get you geared up for the ultimate summer get-togethers, we’ve lined up some essentials to guarantee your piscine look is nothing short of chic.

Striking swimwear is key. This season, Agent Provocateur has debuted a new collection of sexy swimwear with a monochrome palette of black and white to highlight the dramatic details of each suit. Contrasting zippers on a one-piece or panels of mesh that lets the skin play a role in the design are two inventive ways the house gave a sensual edge to their bathing suits sporty designs.

On the other side of the swimsuit spectrum is Orlebar Brown’s delightful printed trunks and suits. Images of famous pools, swimming holes and beachside vacation spots are plastered across the brand’s quick-drying designs. Who wouldn't want to sport a poolside scene while enjoying one as well?

A big trend in terms of accessories this season is perforation. Akris had a perfectly perforated tote on its catwalk for spring. It would make for a great counterpoint to one of those mesh-enhanced Agent Provocateur suits.

Add on a pair of thong leather sandals from Tomas Maier that feature a speckle of perforation across the top and a big, graphic floppy hat from Giorgio Armani and any poolside look will be ready to hit the water or the chaise longue. Oh, and don’t forget to light up one of Diptyque’s giant outdoor candles to help keep the smell of chlorine at bay.

As for the perfect poolside cover up or post party attire, designer Ermanno Scervino has quite a few killer propositions. Be it a crisp white spaghetti strap dress, a light weight perforated coat or a short tunic dress embellished with a succulent plant motif, Scervino has hit on the some seriously winning sartorial options.
