Gone are the days when all you needed for a day by the pool was a bikini and a bottle of SPF 30. In addition to both, it’s now customary to tote around eyewear (usually a couple of pairs for quick but necessary style changes), a sarong, jewellery of all types and colours, and, if you ask Kendall Jenner, an oversize floral bucket hat. Good for both ample sun protection and aesthetically pleasing Instagram posts, her choice of accessory may prove controversial for those not sold on the versatility of the bucket hat, but this particular style from Aussie brand Lack of Color is fast becoming as essential in our beach bags as swimwear and sunscreen.
Jenner, who wore the XXL sun hat for a day spent unwinding outside with meditation, journaling, and sound baths, paired it with an avocado-green string bikini from the swimwear brand every celeb has been donning lately: Sommer Swim. Of course, she also added a simple gold chain necklace from Bruna the Label, as well as a pair of her signature ’90s-style black sunglasses. In other words, she set the official benchmark for poolside style this summer. Now, it’s our turn to follow her lead.
