Beach Bag Essentials to Amp Up Your Summer Swag

In the age of flat lays and #wheretofindme hashtags, going to the beach is no longer just about throwing a ratty beach towel in a bag. A killer beach set-up is akin to styling the perfect airport outfit, taking a 50+ Instagram-liked squad selfie, or having a pool filled with ironic floats. And, since we’re not going to the beach to tan all day anymore (we know better than to anger the skin gods), beach essentials extend to everything we might need to make a day in the sand exceptional—underwater cameras and beach paddles included. Get ready to take your Sunday funday to the next level.
