July is approaching and the relentless summer heat is not going anywhere any time soon. So while you take a dip in the pool to cool off fashionably – in a gorgeous Eres swimsuit, quirky Miu Miu spring/summer 2017’s floral applique swim cap, and a glistening pair of polished sunnies no less – the stylish summertime poolside holiday look is not complete without a tall glass of something something in hand.
Our suggestion? Ditch the usual pool party cocktails and opt for something that your body will thank for later – a tall, refreshing glass of freshly brewed iced tea. Sans collagen-ravaging and calorie-packed alcohol that boozy poolside cocktails normally contain, this low-calorie (and nutrient-packed) option is a surefire way to stay cool while raising your antioxidant level (farewell cancer!) and boosting hydration levels from within (hello radiant, plumped up skin!). This means that you’ll be beating the heat in style while keeping your health factor and weight in check. The result? A trim, toned bod from all the pool action and enviably glowing skin from rehydrating with these healthy thirst quenchers à la sex bombs like Candice Swanopoel or Emily Ratajkowski.
Scroll through the gallery above to check out our favourite haute teas to brew and served iced at your next summertime pool party. With all that said, we can assure you that cooling off with these delectable infusions couldn’t look more chic.
