Few things are more relaxing than spending a lazy summer day swaying in a hammock, sipping iced tea with a good book in hand. Sure, there are great hanging egg chairs to spend your leisure time, but hammocks have a no-fuss vibe that make hanging out easy. If you've only tried the standard variety of hammocks and have never curled up in a hammock chair, you're missing out—for one thing, they give you that nostalgic, playground swing feeling but in a much more comfortable way. And depending on the style you buy, they can even feel like cozying up in your own personal cocoon! Check out the best hammocks that will make spending time in the sun effortless and chic. Kick your feet up and relax!
