Don’t be that dude who brings his bathroom towel to the beach. Given that you’re gonna spend most of the day nearly nude, there aren’t many sartorial maneuvers you can pull to display your personal style. That’s why the beach towel is your friend. It’s an easy way to make an effortless style impact on a lazy beach day. On a more practical note, it’s a beach day essential for its cushy comfy vibes and absorption power after you’ve hit the water.

We’ve rounded up a selection of statement, colorful beach towels from the likes of Stone Island and Carrots and that will look perfect on the ‘gram and are light enough to whack in your beach bag or weekend tote to ensure you have the ultimate beach day.
