Poolside peacock

We all have that one friend who is very extra, she’s all dressed up even when she has nowhere to go. She’s naturally also serving major glamour because chilling by the pool is the perfect opportunity for an impromptu photoshoot, she’ll be all decked out in the trendiest swimsuit paired with a stand-out sarong, an over-the-top straw hat and designer sunglasses.

Breezy by the beach

She’s as easy going as a cool summer breeze, and so is her swimsuit style. A mixture of athleisure and trendy pieces, you can spot her wearing an edgy asymmetrical swimsuit with a bohemian-inspired crochet cover-up, paired with classic sunglasses and a pair of espadrilles.

Sporty swimmer

She’s the adventure junkie of the group, always down to engage in some sort of activity so best believe that she’ll definitely be inside the pool and not just sitting pretty on the outside. Her swimsuit style is pretty simple so you can expect to see her in a basic rash vest or a striped one-piece that will be comfortable enough to have fun while still looking cute.

Turnt up and turnt out

The ultimate turn-up girl is here for a good time, not a long time. She’s the girl you can always count on for a bit of summertime fun, whether you’re in the mood for sundowners or a full day of fun, she’s got you. Her style is bold and so is her personality, she’s the life of the party and is guaranteed to arrive at the pool with an animated pool float, a quirky drinking jar and the perfect playlist to get everyone in the mood for a good time.
