Over-The-Top Pool Floats To Get Summer 2019 Started

Danielle Cohen

Memorial Day Weekend is glistening on the horizon, foreshadowing the imminent arrival of 24/7 summer brain — a seasonal diagnosis that, among other things, includes an ongoing obsession with Instagrammable warm-weather accessories like over-the-top pool floats. It seems like just yesterday that the now-infamous swan raft first caught fire on our feeds. But, that was four years ago in 2015 when Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift were a couple and Jason Derulo's, "Want To Want Me," was our summer anthem. While Taylvin's relationship was short-lived and Derulo's pop-banger displaced by following chart-topping tunes, our torrid love affair with themed pool floats and social media still burns on.

The trendy inflatables grow stylistically stronger (read: more ridiculous) with each sunny season that passes — with shapes now ranging far beyond both the swan that started it all and 2016's iconic ice cream cone. The slew of absurdly irresistible newcomers range from yacht-sized flamingos to pink convertibles, a single Chuck Taylor, and even a private jet. Essentially, there's a raft out there to fulfill all of your wildest summer Instagram dreams...assuming that you dream of absolutely nailing a picture on an over-the-top pool float. We've rounded up the best for 2019 sunshine-season ahead, so scroll on to stock up.
