There’s no question that pool floats have earned their place as a necessity for summer fun. But it’s hard to put our finger on exactly what sealed the deal. Maybe it’s how epically they turn up a regular old pool party, or because floats are so much more fun when they’re GIANT. Or perhaps our die-hard obsession simply stems from the fact that they are so gosh-dang ‘grammable. Whichever way you slice it, the party-ready vessels are only getting trendier. Case in point?
