Floaties are the hottest pool accessory trend for the summer of 2017.

Pool floats were once simple rubber tubes… but now they come in all shapes and sizes, from mini inflatable flamingo drink holders to giant avocados. This fun trend dates back to 2015 when Taylor Swift posted a photo to her Instagram account of her riding a giant inflatable swan, and every summer since, the trend has grown.

No pool party in Vancouver is complete without one of these floaties this summer!
