6 POOLSIDE ACCESSORIES YOU NEED RIGHT NOW

By Mirelle Macdonald

Picture this: you’re sipping cocktails poolside on your favourite sun lounger, a floatable beverage cooler cruising atop the water and a bright-as-can-be towel at the ready when you take a dip.

Isn’t summer life bliss? Weekends in summer are a time to chill out, enjoy some fun in the sun and get yourself soaked in water anyway you can manage.

Whether it’s an indoor pool at your parent’s place, an outdoor pool at your neighbours, or you’re lucky enough to have your own, these six essential poolside accessories will keep you smiling all season long.

1. Sun Lounger

Beautifully bright, this outdoor Palm Springs-style sun lounger is made with UV-resistant plastic cane and rattan weaving. It comfortably sits two people so you can rock away next to a friend or partner. Purchase from here: Matt Blatt – Aura Double Outdoor Rocker $595.00.

2. Ice Bucket

Just because you went really hard at Christmas and you’re on a detox, doesn’t mean you should forgo the bubbles for the rest of summer. This Italian-designed synthetic crystal ice bucket is stylish and classic and comes in a range of fun colours. It makes the perfect addition to outdoor entertaining by the pool. Purchase from here: Fenton & Fenton – Mario Luca Giusti Antartica Ice Bucket $250.00.

3. Nautical-Inspired Towel

Pretty as a picture and functional too – the Toby beach towel from Linen House is super soft and absorbent, so even if you’ve been lolling on it for hours, it will still do its job. Purchase from here: Linen House – Toby Beach Towel $49.95.

4. Beach Umbrellas

A good beach umbrella is a necessity in our hot Australian summers. Versatile and fun, you can use them by the pool, in the park or at the beach. The designs these days are off the chart, so say goodbye to that boring block-coloured umbrella and hello to one of these wonderfully bright umbrellas. Purchase from here: Pillow Talk – Tallow Beach Umbrellas $34.95.

5. Floatable Beverage Cooler

A little kitsch, a lot of fun. This floating cooler features four drink holders and a chiller on top to store ice and more drinks. Pool parties just got way more interesting. Purchase from here: Temple & Webster – Floating Cooler with 4 Drink Holders $45.95.

6. Circular Beach Towels

If you haven’t succumbed to the circular pool towel trend, now’s your chance. These ones from Pillow Talk feature a mix of cool geometric patterns with fringing. They’re perfect to chill on with a buddy and all the rage right now. Purchase from here: Pillow Talk – Round Beach Towels $29.95.
