LUX Style: Beach Essentials

Beach season is here! Time to lather up the sunscreen, throw on your bikini and hit the sand. After you've rounded up your friends, it's time to pack your beach essentials. From sunglasses to sandals, towels and coverups, we found everything you need to fashionably frolic in the sun.

Beach Bags
Tory Burch / Straw Tote
Kate Spade / Pike Place Market - Alicia Tote
Marc by Marc Jacobs / Check Print Transparent Shopper

The first thing you'll need is a fabulous tote to store all your goodies. For a classic beach bag, opt for a stripy straw tote. If you're a little more on the preppy side, go for a sophisticated canvas bag. And if you like a bit of edge, try a hot pink transparent shopper that shows off fashion-forward flare.

Beach Bikini Cover Ups
Mara Hoffman / Rainbow Cocoon Cover Up
Miguelina / Jessica Cover Up
Theodora Callum / Sahara Scarf Top

Leave a little to the imagination with a chic cover up. For the modern bohemian, we love a tribal print kimono. If you like a bit more feminity, a floral lace coverup is a great option. For an exotic look, bring out your inner wild child in a fun leopard top.

Summer Sandals
K Jacques St Tropez / Epicure Multi-Strap Leather Sandals
Valentino / Rockstud Leather Sandals
Tory Burch / Dale Flat Leather Thong Sandals

When you're not dipping your toes in the water, slip them into a cool pair of sandals. Zebra print adds an exotic touch to classic strap sandals, while gold studs give an edgy update to gladiator flats. A clean white pair of thongs with a little embellishment is your go-to shoe for summer.

Beach Sunglasses
Illesteva + Zac Posen / Cat Eye Tortoise Shell Sunglasses
Victoria Beckham / Aviator Mirrored Metal Sunglasses
Thierry Lasry / Barely D-frame Sunglasses

A hot pair of shades is definitely a neccessity. Stay on trend with cat-eye tortoise shell frames. Sleek aviators with blue mirrored shades are totally sports-chic, while pink and white print sunnies are flirty and fun.

Stylish Beach Towels
Fresco Towels / Mesa Diamond Beach Towel
Jonathan Adler / Aegean Waves Beach Towel
Wildfox Couture / Swim Towel

Beach towels are no longer boring. Lay out in style on a southwest-inspired towel with a geometric print. For a bold statement, opt for a bright and cheerful wave print towel. Or express your love for summer days with a wordy towel that celebrates the beach.
