We're not all lucky enough to have a pool in the back yard, but public facilities are starting to open up post lockdown, and the urge to make a splash is growing as temperatures rise. After being trapped indoors for so long, you'd be forgiven for not having your swim-ready wardrobe prepped, though, so we're here to provide some pointers.

When spending a day by the water, it's all about keeping it light. This is why we've kept our pool day look suggestions, all of which are available at luxury destination Luisaviaroma, to the simple combo of swimwear and slides.

Get prepared with our list of pool day essentials.

Swimwear

As it's the only piece you'll likely be wearing for most of the day, you can afford to go for something statement-making when it comes to swimwear. All of the shorts below are exactly that, from SSS World Corp's alien print pair to Burberry's leopard option. We've also thrown in a pair of briefs for the extra brave.

Slides

Slides are the only footwear choice that makes sense on pool day. They're waterproof, easy to slip on and off, and comfy. But not all slides are born equal. If you're looking for something simple and budget-friendly, then adidas' Adilette is a smart option, while everyone's favorite sandal provider Suicoke serves up a colorful summer number. If you're feeling particularly fancy, then Margiela's $295 sandal may suit.

Pool Accessories

Swim shorts and slides sorted, it's time for the fun stuff. Yes, you may be a full-grown adult, but you're never too old for a pool float. The two below come courtesy of celeb-favorite Sunnylife, which is a go-to for standout, animal-shaped inflatables. There's also a luxe towel by Balenciaga. And why the hell not? You've been waiting a long time to get back by the water.
