Your guide to beach essentials for this summer
You have to make a start now if you want to get the best out of this summer. Start making plans right away. If punishing work schedules are stressing you out, you need to unwind and plunge into summer activities. And in case you haven’t had the time, I’ve put together a checklist of must-have beach essentials for this summer. Take a look at them here:
Whether it’s to hang out by a swimming pool or at the beach, you need swimwear that you feel comfortable in. Swimsuits, spandex ones are very figure-flattering and give you a sleek silhouette. If you want to go with a modest swimsuit, try the 2-piece skirted style with ruffled blouson. The spandex fabric is durable and chlorine-resistant and ideal for any water-based activity. Whether it’s swimming, sun bathing or water sports, you’ll feel good in it. Another swimsuit that’s handy to have around and allows for easy movement is the Nike Swim reversible solids cut out tank. Since its reversible, you get to have two different colors with one suit.
You’ll need to protect your eyes from harsh UV rays with sunglasses when you’re out in the water swimming, surfing or even just sun bathing. Go for sunglasses that suit the shape of your face and skin tone and set a trend. Check out the character Walter Sherman wearing flip up sunglasses in the TV series, The Finder that have become really popular. The glasses are lightweight ABS Gloss black frames with clear, flip up lenses that are 100% UV protected.
A tote bag or any beach bag that’s spacious enough to hold all your essentials is an absolute must-have. Essentials that go into my bag are sunscreen, a towel, a sunhat and a bottle of water. And I never go out without my cell phone either so a bag that has a secure pocket is necessary. Something like a Ralph Lauren cotton crochet tote is stylish and smart to carry around on the beach or even in the city. It has a snap patch pocket with a mobile niche.
