While our enthusiasm for bikini shopping may vary from year to year, our love for poolside accessories is absolute. (We know from experience that a great pair of shades, printed sarong, or straw hat can transform the shy-est of swimmers into confident cabana hopper!) Of all the gear packed in our beach bags, it’s the towel that provides the best opportunity for self-expression. Whether they’re preppy, graphic, funny, or rebellious our beach towels say a lot about our identities. So decide who you’ll be this summer, hit the pool and mark your territory with one of these statement-making towels:

    Great post! I like the Reserved and Do Not Disturb towels! Although I’m partial to my American University towel, which has accompanied me on many trips to the beach, I think it might be time to add a few new ones to my beach bag this summer.

    I love my Fouta from FOUTA COLORS… Cheaper and cuter than the Serena + Lily one I have…. (Not sponsored, just a happy borderline obsessed customer lol) Blessed to live a block from the beach so can’t get enough towels:)
