There’s still time to get in a few more pool parties, but you’ll need the right accessories to make sure you get the most out of each precious remaining moment in the sun. These must-have poolside accessories will not only keep you staying cool but looking cool too.
Poolside Entertainment Must-Haves
Get the pool party started with a floating beer pong raft by Floating Pong. Available in a variety of designs and colors, they even offer customization, the floating pong table provides hours of poolside fun (and refreshment) sure to take any day at the pool to the next level.
Pool floats are a must and, thanks to Taylor Swift and her squad, last year was all about the giant swan float. This year things are getting mythical with the latest must-have pool float, the Pegasus pool float by FUNBOY. The pegasus pool float is complete with golden wings and a matching mane, sure to make you feel like Poseidon in your swimming pool.
No pool party is complete without some summer hits! The Ivation waterproof Bluetooth floating speaker lets you play your favorite tunes while you relax or party in the pool. The Ivation speaker works with a variety of devices, including Android, iPhone, iPod, and other Bluetooth-enabled media players, and has a streaming range of 33 feet so you can keep your device safely away from the water while still enjoying the perfect summer playlist.
Capture the Perfect Dive
Have video proof of the perfect cannon ball with the GoPro Hero Session. The Hero Session is the smallest GoPro, but the size won’t interfere with capturing all your favorite moments in high-resolution video or photos. The Hero Session is also waterproof, up to 10 meters so that you can capture every dive, flip, or doggy paddle in or out of the water.
Keep Drinks Cold and Snacks Close at Hand
The Ultra Kool Tray™ pulls double duty as both a floating snack tray and game board, complete with game pieces to enjoy a friendly game of checkers as you cool off in the pool. The Ultra Kool Tray™ has eight cubbies to hold multiple cold drinks and a large compartment for a big bowl of snacks.
Keep your drinks cold, the margaritas flowing, and more with the all-in-one Coolest Cooler. Boasting a built-in blender, USB charger, blue tooth speaker, a bottle opener, a corkscrew, and advanced insulation, which allows ice to last 4 to 5 days, the Coolest Cooler lives up to its name.
Master Poolside Style
A day at the pool calls for a stylish pair of sunglasses. Keep the sun out of your eyes, while looking cool, with classic summertime sunglasses by Ray-Ban. Ray-Ban offers a wide variety of styles, from the timeless black frame Wayfarers to the bold and colorful Clubmaster with electric blue lenses, making them perfect for men and women who love lounging poolside.
Sunglasses are just the beginning of looking stylish at the pool. Straw hats make a great addition to any summer pool party look, while also fending off burned cheeks and noses. Billabong’s Bazza men’s straw hat is styled after the classic lifeguard hat, complete with a wide brim and adjustable drawstring.
For lounging ladies, the Kimchi Blue Sun Daze straw floppy hat from Urban Outfitters has an extra wide floppy brim to provide the perfect of amount of shade and keep you looking chic.
Complete your poolside look with an eye-catching beach towel, like Avalon’s Luxe towel with bold red, green, yellow, black, and white stripes, or go for an allover triangle pattern with Target’s Geo coral beach towel. If you’re into more of a classic look, you can’t go wrong with the Big Anchor beach towel by Nautica.
There’s still time to take advantage of warm days and cool pools. With these must-have poolside accessories, every pool party is sure to be epic. Which accessories are you going to add to your next pool party?
