When did water bottles also become fashion accessories? There might not be an exact tipping point, but S'well is surely one of the companies responsible for our desire to not only hydrate, but also hydrate chicly.
The bottle, with its fun colors and patterns, has a distinct shape that we just see everywhere now. (There's even a $1,500 version at Neiman Marcus.) And thanks to vacuum-sealed insulation that keeps drinks cold and your hands dry, it's as functional as it is cute.
If you've been tempted by their eye-catching designs but not willing to shell out the cash, a selection is currently on sale on Amazon.
Buy It!S'well Vacuum Insulated Water Bottles, from $20
The largest size, the 25-ounce bottle, is marked down to $36 from $45. The standard S'well size, the 17-ounce bottle, retails for $35, so this sale means you're basically getting a free upgrade to the larger size. The sale only applies to one color at this size, however: the bright Bird of Paradise color. It's a gorgeous orange-y red, but if you're looking for something more low-key, you're out of luck.
The other S'well bottles on sale (for $20) give you a few more options. There are four sale options in the 9-ounce bottle, including a dark green that looks both on-trend and a bit more neutral, and a fun blue marble. The only downside is, of course, that 9 ounces just isn't that big. That said, this smaller size is good for a number of things, like gym bags or kids' lunch boxes. (Or even some subtle cocktail BYOB for picnic season.)
If $20 is still more than you want to shell out for a water bottle, these inexpensive alternatives are $15 every day.
