Pool Float Trends We're Into for 2021 (+ 2 We're Giving Up)
If you’re looking out at snow right now, it might still feel like spring and summer are far off in the untouchable distance. Happily, the seasons will shift and warm weather will be here before you know it. We’re prepping for that seasonal shift right now, gathering ideas and predicting how they will also apply come pool float season. Scroll down to see our seasonal picks, as well as the pool raft trends we’re passing on for 2021.
Is it just us or is this color everywhere for Spring 2021? Romantic and positive, could there be a more perfect color for the Spring following the worst year ever? We think not. Up the romance even further with heart shape pool floats in shades of pink.
The “Naked” Trend
Sheer clothing and shoes are huge this Spring and we can only see that continuing as the weather warms. Bring the clear trend into your pool raft collection this summer with a large pool float in see-through materials. Pool floats for adults can get a little garish – we like to think this minimal float is Marie Kondo-approved.

Hands up if you had enough alone time in 2020? After a year or more of social distancing, everyone who can gather safely this year will be looking to do just that. As we head into summer, expect to see fewer home baking posts and more shots of smiling, vaccinated groups of friends. And when the hot weather hits its stride, expect to see them at the beach and poolside. Throw in a few gold heart shape floats and baby floats for the little people for a summer group pic that’s very 2021.
1. High Maintenance Floats
Maybe it’s just us, but if a pool float lounger takes more than 5 minutes to inflate, we’re out. After a year inside we want to enjoy every minute of the pool party!
2. Icky Designs
Cockroach pool floats, giant turd pool floats, pool floats for adults shaped like toilets? We’re passing on these designs for pool rafts with more positive vibes, like heart shape pool floats and retro cassette tape loungers.
