With your sandals and swimsuits ready to go, there’s one thing missing from your summer checklist—the beach towel. After all, when you’re packing up your bag and heading to the shore, your towel is the first thing you grab (next to sunscreen, of course).
Whether you go for classic stripes, bold florals or a towel channeling your favorite photographer (shoutout to Ryan McGinley), it’s part of your ensemble. And, for all you fashionistas, why not get creative with it?
That’s why we’ve made your summer adventuring easy by digging up 34 of the best designed beach towels. Just make sure to pin down those ends with your new sandals—you don’t want to sand to cover up your style while you’re out swimming.
