Summer season is almost here and with it comes days at the beach where you can soak up the sun and enjoy the water. But before heading out for the official first beach day of the season, you want to be sure you’ve packed up all the Fashion Essentials for the Perfect Beach Day.
6 Must-Have Fashion Essentials You Need for the Perfect Beach Day
The last thing you want to do is arrive at the beach only to find out that you have forgotten to pack an important item. Here’s your packing list for the perfect beach day.
Sunscreen Is the Top Priority
Above all else on the priority list is sunscreen. You do not want to come home at the end of the day burnt and uncomfortable, so pack plenty of SPF so that you can reapply it every 80 minutes or after swimming. Because you’ll likely be swimming, make sure the sunscreen you pack is also water-resistant as not all formulas are.
Hat and Sunglasses Make the Day More Comfortable
The bright sunshine is wonderful, but it can also be quite uncomfortable if you don’t have the proper gear. Sunglasses that protect against the harmful UV rays and a wide-brimmed hat will allow you to stay in the sun without having to squint.
A Stylish Cover Up Provides Versatility to Swimwear
When it comes to women’s swimwear & cover-ups the two need to go hand-in-hand. Purchasing a cover-up that works with your swimsuit gives you versatility. You’ll likely feel more comfortable walking along the beach, strolling into a beachside shop or even enjoying drinks and snacks at a casual beach bar. That extra coverage can make you feel more put-together and with so many trendy versions available, they also make you appear stylish.
What Will You Be Sitting On?
Now is the question of comfort — what will you be sitting or lying on at the beach? You can certainly use your towel, but once it gets wet it’s not going to be ideal to keep lying on it. You can bring an oversized beach blanket, an inflatable air mattress or a folding chair, whatever suits you best. You may also want to pack a beach umbrella that can be pushed into the sand giving you shade during the hottest point of the day.
A Cooler Full of Snacks and Drinks
Many beaches have snack stands and restaurants located nearby but if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of having to buy things, be sure to pack a cooler full of snacks and drinks. Be sure to also use ice packs in the cooler to keep things fresh and cold.
Some easy and convenient packable beach snacks and meals include:
- Granola bars
- Sliced fresh fruit
- Sliced fresh veggies and dip
- Homemade trail mix
Don’t Forget the Entertainment
Finally, you may want to pack some entertainment options for when you’re not swimming or napping on the beach. Simple to pack items like a book, magazines, your e-reader, a tablet for streaming content or an iPod will all keep you occupied.
By packing all of these essentials you’ll be ready for the ultimate beach day.
