The essentials for a splendid day in the sun

The sun is shining, the sand is sparkling, and the waves are crashing, all of which signal it’s time to gear up for the beach. With the official start of summer just weeks away, get beach-ready with our picks for the perfect beach or pool bag. From cool hats to a page-turning new novel — start packing.

WRAP STAR

The sarong is the ultimate summer essential. It offers countless ways to take cover at the beach: wrap it around your waist or blanket yourself when there’s a cool ocean breeze.

CARRY ALL

The SUV of beach bags, this oversize tote hauls it all—towels, toys, lotions, you name it. It’s made from recycled high-density plastic, making it a good buy and an easy clean.

BOOK GUARD

Book, iPad, Kindle: Whatever you read at the beach, keep it sand and saltwater-free. Zip it up in this clever cover, which doubles as a bag for wet bathing suits.

The Life Boat by Charlotte Rogan is this summer’s must-read. A story of love, choice and survival, it will keep you on the edge of your beach chair.

the sun’s harmful rays and looking effortlessly stylish all the same.
