It’s officially summer, which means carving out a few work-free weekends to have a little fun in the sun is practically a requirement. In many ways, your towel is the second most important beach day item apart from your swimsuit and coverup. So if you’ve been using that one randomly long shower towel that matches nothing (look, we’ve all done it), just know that you’re seriously missing out. This summer, optimize your sunbathing experience with a sassy oversized towel or a pretty printed beach blanket. There’s more options than ever! Below are a few of my current favorites!
