Believe it or not, stores are getting ready for Fall, and that means the summer sales are on! If you’re looking to spruce up your summer wardrobe and feel fabulous doing it, now is the time to suit up with Alice York’s Poolside Picks!  As with any ensemble, accessories make the look – nothing helps to detract from what you might consider a problem area quite like a great hat or bauble (and when it comes to swimwear, there is nothing quite like the power of distraction).

Looking like a glamorous denizen of St. Tropez is easier than you think – and doesn’t need to cost the price of poolside living at the Hotel La Bastide. Channel your inner glitz goddess with boho meets jet-set picks, like this daring Missoni-inspired Forever 21 swimsuit and wide brimmed hat by J. Crew.

This look, bien sur, would not be complete without the jewels. To keep the worldly spirit of this style, be sure to choose pieces that look like they might have been picked up from exotic sojourns, like thesegold and wooden bangles sourced from Ann Taylor, not far-off markets.

Your beach style more Nantucket than the Cote d’Azur? Embrace your preppiness in full with thisnautical navy tankini from L.L. Bean. Pair this sunny suit with a basic canvas tote and coordinating yellow sandals, from purveyor of all things classic, Gap. Best of all? Top to toe, the cost for this look is much more public pool than Easthampton.
