Poolside Lounging

Summers laziest activity also provides the best fits

Men's poolside lounging outfit inspiration

Rounding the corner into the dog days of summer, all the Valet. team wants to do is kick back and relax. Sure, the Fourth of July weekend was a nice reprieve, but between the brutally hot days and the mass amount of outings to make up for so much time indoors, it's easy to want to take a break and laze by a body of water. And that's more than okay! After all, lounging is something of an art form (it takes real work to do this little), and it's important to do a little self-care now and again.

Chilling doesn't have to mean doing absolutely nothing, either—although that's certainly a noble undertaking. There's the obvious cooling dip into your preferred source of water, but more cerebral pursuits are well within grasp. Take the chance to crack open the book you've meant to start all quarantine, or boot up a podcast and learn more about anything from passions to personal growth. However you choose to relax, make sure you do it in style, because you want your friends and neighbors to know you've still got it, right? Stick with brighter shades and hues to mitigate the heat, and make sure to bring a hat along for full coverage. An easy-wear shoe, like espadrilles or leather slides, are the name of the game, as is an easy-off top. Choose your swim trunks wisely—if they can't double as loungers for the day, are they really worth it? Check out our recommend lists to make any poolside hang the best and most stylish one of the summer.
