I have a couple of prerequisites when selecting items to add to my beach gear rotation. Comfort is non-negotiable, adequate coverage is a must, and of course, I love pieces that add a fresh element to the overall look. This grouping covers all of those bases easily. I mean, how cute is that tote bag? And there is no denying the chicness of a gray (reversible) swimsuit and hat, especially in that unique and flattering shade. Topped off with an airy, voile cover up and Birkenstocks, both in white, and I’d be good to go.
