FashionSummer Accessories: Poolside Picks

summer accessories - header image

You’ve already got a bangin’ bikini (or show-stopping one-piece!) – but every girl knows an outfit isn’t complete without accessories! Whether you’re planning a pool party or jet-setting off to a luxury resort, we’ve got all the goodies you need to look hot and stay cool by the pool! So slather on your sun-tan lotion and scroll through to see our fave sun-ready accessories for hanging out poolside!

Got it Covered:

Get into a sun-bathing state-of-mind by slipping into a luxe little swim cover-up! We’re obsessing over the bold rainbow stripe of the Lulus Leela Multi Striped Swim Cover-Up that’s perfect for sipping pina coladas poolside in Palm Springs! Another current fave is the Amuse Society Poolside Dreams Golden Yellow Embroidered Kimono Top! Not only is it a lovely shade of sunny yellow (ya know, the color that’s been blowing up your feed!), but it’s also versatile enough to take from sun-tanning to tapas! Taking a dip somewhere tropical? Try out the Lulus Waipio Valley Peach and Sage Green Leaf Print Cover-Up; its lovely leaf print and breezy silhouette is just what you need to get an exotic vacay vibe!

Shaded Lady:

Trying to stay cool and look cool? An easy solution is to stay shaded under a chic sunhat! The wide, floppy brim of the San Diego Hat Co. Getaway Beige and Black Floppy Straw Hat is sure to provide plenty of sun-protection, and will have you mesmerized with its swirling black and white woven pattern. Another option for lounging in luxury is the Aleenta Black Sequin Floppy Straw Hat. Its sequin embellishments will have you feeling like queen of the cabana! Want to make a splash without getting wet? Top off your look with a fun tassel trimmed hat like the San Diego Hat Co. Montage Tan Floppy Straw Hat and your swimsuit won’t be the only thing making a statement!

In the Bag:

Once you’ve picked out everything you need for a leisurely poolside lounge sesh, you’ll need a bag to tote it all in! The Cabrillo Tan Woven Tote is perfect for packing up everything you could possibly need (and then some!) and has a cool, oversized look. Spending happy hour by the pool? Pack up everything you need for mixed drinks in the Lulus On The Move Mauve Pink Net Tote and call up your girls! Want a minimal, chic way to tote all your sunny day essentials? Grab our Lulus Ferndale Beige Round Woven Tote. It’s round design is just the right size to carry your sunscreen, sunnies, and some reading material!
