As summer comes around, so does the need for accessories to make pool days perfect. From bikinis to sunscreen to cover-ups, we’ve got you covered with our favorites.



Obviously you need a cute swimsuit to lounge by the pool in! You can find our favorite one piece swimsuits here, or find some bikinis we love down below:

Beach Bags

I love a good tote to cart all my stuff to and from the pool in. It has to be cute and functional! We wrote a full article on all our favorite beach bags, and 3 of our top picks are below.


Obviously, you should be wearing sunscreen at the beach — burns aren’t cute. There are different sunscreens to use to keep that tan bronze, not bright red. We’ve collected the top 3 for each of your skin’s needs, and remember: keep applying it!

Whether you call them pool slides or sandals, you definitely need them. No one likes bringing home sand in their shoes. These ones are fashionable and functional:

Cover Ups

What are you thinking if you don’t bring a cute cover-up to the pool with you? They’re perfect for when you get out of the pool and want to leave in something comfy. We wrote an article on them, but these are some of our other top picks.

Sun Hats

UV rays will be beating down on you, and sunscreen can only do so much (but like we said, you should keep applying it!). We’re so in love with the below sunhats that we included them in an article. Check them out:
