A day spent lounging by the pool is practically a mandatory summer activity. The feeling of cool water on our toes while we soak up the sunshine is one of our favorite things about the season. While beach or lakeside relaxation may be limited by geography and available vacation time, public pools and friends’ backyards mean that almost everyone can hit the pool at some point while the weather’s still hot. We suggest a few poolside essentials to help you have fun, look great, and hopefully avoid an unwanted chlorine “dye job” compliments of your time spent in the pool water.
If you actually want to go for a swim, a bikini with enough secure coverage is a must — we love this stylish yet completely practical swimsuit. Pair it with a a great cover-up, and you’ve got the perfect outfit to take you to and from the pool.
