When hitting the beach, every woman needs her swimsuit, cover-up, sandals, sun hat and beach bag. These are my top picks of each to keep you looking chic at the beach this summer. Surf’s up!

T-strap Sandals:

The sandal of the moment, this style is casual, while still looking special. The perfect day-to-night shoe.

Sun Hats:

Big brims are key for keeping the sun’s rays away from the face. Don’t be afraid to try a bright color or stripe!

Beach Bags: 

Totes don’t have to sacrifice style for function. These carry-alls will hold all your beach essentials, while looking great on your arm.


Don’t you dare think you can throw on a tank and shorts over your suit! The cover-up is the No. 1 way to make your fashion statement at the beach!


The 2014 swim market has provided a suit for every body type. Bikinis, strapless, halters, skirts, tankinis...the options are endless!
