Must Have Beach Items
1. A Tote Bag
What better way to express yourself, and to tell your friends how excited you are that it’s summer, than with your beach bag? A tote bag is the best option to carry all the must haves for the weekend or beach vacation.
2. Cover Ups
A stylish cover-up is an important item that can’t be missed out! Pull one of these over your swimsuit to complete your stylish beach side look!

3. Flip Flops
Ahh, flip flops are one of my favorite footwear to wear in summer! They give the best comfort to walk through the sand on the beaches. I’m loving the Prada one!
A hat is always a must for extra sun protection! It makes a really fun and flexible accessory, and a great way to top up your sundresses and swimsuits.

5. Lip Balm
Sun protection is not just for your face and body, it’s so very important to keep your lips protected too. These pro lip balms will protect your lips from the harmful rays when you’re out in the sun.
Thinking of what to wear to the beach? Sundresses are the best option to feel relaxed on the beach. And if you’re going for a summer vacation, your packing ain’t complete without a cute sundress! I’m liking the Zimmermann one!
When it comes to must have beach items for a beautiful outdoor trip, sunglasses are an obvious one! Shop any of these to look stylish and cool!

Round Metal Sunglasses with Crystal Details: Dolce & gabbana
Semi Mirrored Lenses Framed by Polished Gold Tone Metal: Dior
Everyone knows the importance of this one, and surely protecting your skin with suntan lotion is a must for healthy skin. Pick any of these SPF protection ones when you sit under the sun.
Of course, if you’re going to take a dip in the beach, swimsuit is an all time must-have item. It’s always best to have a classic swimsuit in your wardrobe but it’s more fun to spice things up with a trendy style every summer. My favorite is the plunging v-neck one designed by Oscar-de la Renta.
A soft towel is your best friend at the beach, whether you’re lying down with a book or flopping down after playing in the waves! I would like to shop the one with the bird-print by Vera Bradley when I go for my vacation!
11. Beach Blanket
The best part about beaches is that you can relax on the beach blankets, for hours at a stretch! So take one with you, lay back and count the stars while listening to the sound of waves!
So these are the must have beach items. Don’t forget to pack up all the items for your trip to the beach! Lemme know what your essentials are!
