If you've read any of our five million swimsuit stories this year, you probably have your bikini purchase already sorted. But if you're headed to the beach anytime soon, you'll need a few accessories in addition to your cute new swimsuit. How else are you going to hide your stash of White Claw and store your gobs of sunscreen?
Even though I'm a Southern California native, I'm never really organized when it comes to beach accessories. I usually empty out an old canvas tote I got for free and haphazardly throw things in there. But since I want to be a bit more put-together this summer, below, I'm rounding up the five accessories every fashion girl brings to the beach.
1. Cute Beach Chair and Towel
Sorry, your old bath towels just won't cut it at the beach. Not only are they too small, but they're also definitely not as cute as these beach towels below.
Last but not least, a swimsuit cover-up is always a good idea if you don't want to be shimmying into your skinny jeans after a dip in the ocean. Choose light, breezy pieces that you can easily put on and take off.
