Summer is right around the corner and you’re probably counting down the days until it’s the end of the workweek and you’re jetting off to new adventures in faraway destinations. It’s all about lounging by the sea, sipping ice-cold beer, and relaxing while listening to the soothing waves that hit the shore. It’s about taking a plunge into pure bliss and unplugging for a little while—which means, hassle-free planning, and more importantly, hassle-free packing.
We took the liberty of making a quick guide on things you can bring with you for a stylish summer weekend—from swim shorts and beach bags, down to the contents of your dopp kit.
Tan in style
Add a touch of character to your beach gear with pieces in handsome prints and pops of color. Bluemint’s bright-hued Yam Terry Polo Shirts and tropical-printed Arthus Swim Shorts are perfect for showing off your fun side while getting a tan.
Don’t forget to pack a light jacket for those cool nights by the shore. Wear this jacket from Hackett with your favorite Bluemint swim shorts or tailored Pedro del Hierro bermuda shorts for a smart sartorial flair.
What’s in the bag
Accessories matter. Your beach bag is just as important as the look you’re sporting. Forego the sensible tote and opt for a clean and functional nylon backpack from New Balance. It’s perfect for lugging around your favorite beach read, reusable S’well water bottle, and a stylish hat from Dorfman Pacific.
Dopp kit essentials
Taking care of your skin is vital year-round. Don’t forget to add in a few hydrating and sun-protecting steps into your daily skin-care regimen to ensure clear, clean, picture-perfect skin with Clinique for Men Maximum Hydrator Activated Water Gel Concentrate and UV Defense SPF 50/PA++++.
Now that reservations have been made, plans have been finalized, and your essentials have been packed to the nines, you’re ready to go and enjoy the warm summer sun. Don’t forget to post a few snaps for the ‘Gram!
