Style Roundup: Summer Beach Essentials
Sun, Sand, and the Perfectly Packed Beach Bag
Growing up in Florida meant weekends full of last minute trips to the sea for salty air and beach bumming. Besides conquering the ideal SPF-to-tan ratio and some rudimentary surfing skills (a fact that I like to sprinkle in conversation *as much as possible* now that I live in NYC), packing for the beach has become a forte of mine over the years.
Traveling light is definitely a top priority for a day in the sun. When you’re running between breaks with boards and m-a-a-y-be a few beers, who wants to lug around a heavy tote bag? Me neither. But there are certain essentials that you just cannot forego, so let’s meet in the middle and pack what’s needed…in style.
Below, the 8 beach essentials to pack this summer:
Wear it Well: It only takes one lobster-red burn to never forget sunscreen again…and we should all avoid that. Opt for a sunscreen specially formulated for men to fully breach your skin and keep you protected all day.
Wear it Well: A canvas tote is the perfect balance of masculinity, utility, AND durability. Wet trunks and sandy flip-flips? Throw ’em in there without thinking twice.
Wear it Well: Secure your phone in this multi-function radio and start a Spotify summer playlist without worrying about any sand in your screen. (Did you see that you can pump up the bass too?)
Wear it Well: A rash guard can be the unsung hero of your beach day. If sea sports are your thing or if you want ultimate sun protection, don’t forget a simple rash guard…no oversized logos here, guys.
Wear it Well: Outshine fellow beach-goers with a bold pair of trunks. If there’s a perfect time to go outside your comfort zone with prints and color, this is it.
What’s in your beach bag? Do you pack it all or keep it minimal?
