Forget Inflatable Swans! These Are the Pool Floats You Need This Summer

Float on in style with these 11 adorable options.

Last summer, one outdoor accessory reigned supreme over all others: the inflatable swan pool float. It seemed like every social media star, blogger and celebrity spent the season lounging on an adorable, oversized swan — even Taylor Swift and Alessandra Ambrosio got in on the action. 

But after months of overexposure, the inflatable swan just doesn't have the same allure it once did. So this year, instead of sticking with last year's top trend, try out something a little more unexpected with an undeniable cool factor, like these 11 adorable pool floats.
