13 Pic-Worthy Pool Props to Up Your Insta Game
What's a post without a prop?
'Tis the season for poolside play dates and giant, mystical floats galore. Prepare for photo ops aplenty with the prettiest props on the market. I've taken on the great challenge (HA, jokes!) of online shopping to bring you only the very best poolside gear — the products that will set you apart from the rest, both by the water and on your friends' Instagram feed.
First Things First:
You'll need a charger. Because you won't be able to pose or post pics without a fully-charged phone. These tassel chargers are more than just cute; they're virtually a poolside necessity.
Regular rectangular beach towels are so last year. Do as the cool kids do and snatch up one of the round beach towels to soak up all the sunshine.
Comfy + Cool
Are you in need of a little more cushion than that hard, hot concrete offers? Look no further than this adorable, inflatable chair for all your sunbathing needs. That banana palm pattern is sure to secure some "likes" from your followers.
Listen to portable and waterproof music all day long. This waterproof speaker and radio is perfect for poolside parties and the aqua-blue color is a pretty plus.
(Pine)Apple of My Eye
Why risk losing those designer shades when you can rock this tropical look? These pineapple sunnies just scream "fun in the sun."
And, while you're at it — drink as the mermaids drink.
Let's face it – giant swans are a thing of the past. This is the year of the unicorn, and all pool floats should represent as such.
Sip + Slurp
Your bikini-clad selfie is not complete without one of these pretty, pink party straws peeking out of your piña colada.

Step one: Mark your territory (i.e. glass of rosé) with one of these guys. Step two: Take photos and/or videos for your IG story to give everyone FOMO.
Bump Up the Beach Ball
Get that sporty aesthetic just right with an oversized, melon-themed beach ball moment. Enlist the help of friends to take a fun, candid and athletic pic to add to your feed.
This pineapple-meets-disco-ball tumbler is a guaranteed standout for any pool day. Just add your favorite sangria, and you're set for the day.
Sophisticated Sun Hat
This scripted and sweet sun hat is picture-perfect and shades your face from any harmful UV rays. Rosé, s’il vous plait? Oui!
This super-cute cooler tote is just the sidekick you need when the temperature rises and you're desperate for an ice-cold beverage.
Give your splash pad a stylish spruce-up.
