Summer's incoming, people. It might seem early but it's time to start preparing. Summer done well is the greatest season of the year, but a summer that doesn't hit the mark feels like the worst season because of all of the missed opportunities. So, with the help of Urban Outfitters, we’re doing a chunk of your preparation for you.
Days in the sun, like summer itself, can be the best thing ever when done properly but can be a nightmare if you're unprepared. Sunburn is always a bad look (and really bad for you), and so is not being able to supply your friends with chilled beverages. So, by the way, are sweaty feet, bad sunglasses, and a lack of storage space.
But don't worry, that's all sorted below in our checklist for a day in the sun. Sandals, sunnies, shorts, shirts, sunscreen, and satisfyingly spacious sacks are all below.

Your headwear is one of the most important parts of your checklist for a day in the sun. It can protect you and be an integral part of your look at the same time.
