With the promise of cooler weather on the horizon, we’re getting ready to come out of hibernation and prep for weekends spent by the beach – and by prep, we are (of course) referring to getting our accessories in order. This is the time and place to indulge your playful side and have a little fun because beachside is where anything goes. Pompoms, fringe, tassels, and blindingly bright colors are all allowed (and even encouraged). Adding a natural touch to your ensemble is always a great idea, and can be easily achieved with raffia, straw, cork, or linen.
A perfect beach towel is key; look for one that is soft and fluffy, with colors to match your swimwear and accessories. Keep sunglasses on the lighter side of the color spectrum, and opt for pieces made of acetate to avoid metals that overheat. Also opt for a flattering hat that will both hide bad hair days and protect you from the rays of the sun. To get started, find visual inspiration for your beach look by browsing Savoir Flair’s gallery and shop our edit of the best accessories.
