With temperatures on the rise, it’s easy to set your sights on the beach. Whether you’re planning a pool party or beach BBQ with friends, here are a few must-have items to help update your warm weather wardrobe.
Knotted Head Wrap: $3.90
Regardless of your hair length, one of the best ways to keep flyaway hair at bay is with a stylish head wrap. I love this version (classic with a slight nautical undertone). It’s the perfect accessory to sport while sailing or strolling along the beach.
Amp up your warm weather wardrobe with these colorful, sleek sandals. The touch of neon is amazing and as easy to wear for a post-beach brunch as it is for casual poolside cocktails. Pass the Piña Colada, please!
As one of our top ten spring trends that we can’t wait to wear, kimono jackets are a perfect alternative to traditional beach cover-ups. Best of all, it’s a versatile piece that you can wear for date night, a summer festival, or brunch with friends.
Polka Dot One-Piece: $79.99
Polka dots are always on trend for making a splash. This version adds extra support and coverage for added comfort.
Sunscreen is the ultimate beach essential, but trying to choose is overwhelming! My personal favorite is Loreal’s Advanced Sunscreen; it’s a great price and does its job flawlessly. The lotion has antioxidants, Vitamin E, and white grape seed and is easy-to-blend, layers invisibly under makeup, and leaves a matte finish. It’s also dermatologist tested and non-comedogenic/non-acnegenic formula (perfect for sensitive skin).
Drawstring Shorts: $59.50
These drawstring shorts are the epitome of casual comfort—and I love the bold pattern! Plus, the linen fabric is ideal for the outdoors—breathable, light, and airy.
Beach Tote: $49.95
L.L. Bean makes the perfect beach tote—large enough to hold all of the essentials and leaves extra room for miscellaneous items. It comes in a variety of hues and can be personalized with your monogram.
Sunglasses are a dime a dozen and if you’re like me, you lose them all the time (especially at the beach)! So, opt for stylish yet affordable options. These gold frames have a hint of a cat-eye, plus UV 400 protection.
Waterproof Mascara: $4.49
To put it simply, this longtime best-selling mascara works. Beyond the chic, iconic pink tube, this mascara is durable, smudge proof, and never weighs my lashes down.
Panama Hat: $14
A timeless straw hat is the easiest beach companion; I love this hat’s simple silhouette and fresh white color.
Beach towels don’t just need to be utilitarian; they can be the perfect way to add personality to the summer shores. This turquoise herringbone turkish towel does just that!
