What To Pack For The Beach

It's about the time of year when we start getting really fed up with winter. Keep your picturesque snow scenes, warm jackets and cozy fireplaces—we just want to hit the beach already! Of course, Rockaway isn't exactly "in season" right now, so us sand-loving souls will have to travel. It doesn't take much to get us on a plane when we know what's on the other side, but it does bring up the question of what to pack. You'll want to be comfortable, you'll want to be sun-protected and you'll want to be super cool. Don't leave without the following items and you'll be just fine.

Beach Bag

Yes, it's a man's bag, but it's so good. Also, its zip-closure will keep the sand away from your books, phone and bags of chips.

Sunscreen

Safety first! Always protect your skin in the sun.

Swimsuit

Unless you're one of those beach people who doesn't like to go swimming. Lame.
file

Beach Towel

You can one-up anybody with a Colette x Saturdays NYC towel. Seriously.

Stereo

Because what beach gathering is complete without some tunes?

Giant Hat

Helpful for protecting from the sun, but essential for Instagram selfies.

Cover-Up

So maybe you've spent the whole day on the beach and you suddenly get the urge to grab a hot dog down the road. You can't just stroll over in your bathing suit, so be sure to have this handy.

Sandals

Yes, they're daring, but you'll be running up and down the shore at lightning speed—like a Greek goddess.

Okay, we get it, goddess sandals aren't for everybody. Regardless, you're gonna need something on your feet! Try these.

Hoodie

We're not in full-on summer yet, so temperatures can still get a little cool in the evenings. Set up a bonfire on the beach with your pals and cozy up in something impossibly soft.
