How to be Cool at the Pool from Amy Scalia of Cincy Chic

Listen to the interview.

Amy Scalia, a Cincinnati native, is the editor in chief and publisher of Cincy Chic the online lifestyle publication for women in the Greater Cincinnati area, which was recently honored with the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber’s “Best New Product or Service” 2007 Women’s Business Award.

Here are Amy’s Tips & Trends for how to be “Cool at the Pool”:

Cala Ossidiana is a Cincinnati native swimsuit designer who recently moved to NYC to make it big. I love her suits because they’re designed with these knots in the back that you can adjust to perfectly tailor to your body.

Guria Beachwear is my second favorite swimsuit line because it was designed with a “real woman” in mind. They just released a High Waist Bottom that provides an instant tummy tuck. They also have several tops specifically designed to make you look a cup size fuller.

 I also love Guria because they have a “Pool Party” portion of their site. I have the black coverup on there. I love it because – with a simple pair of stylish shoes – I can transform this cover up to a cute couture dress.

Wearing statement jewelry is a sure way to look cool by the pool. Earrings are best so you don’t leave tan lines.

It’s also stylish to be geek chic on the beach. I like the Lifedge case because – not only do they come in lots of cute colors – but it also floats, is waterproof, drop-proof, and has an anti-glare coating. You can also have hi-tech tunes by the pool without the worries of water. I have the “soulmate” which works through bluetooth and is sand and water-proof. It’s great by the pool, on the beach or even in the kitchen!
