TERRIFIC BEACH TOWELS YOU CAN SPOT FROM AFAR

by Marisa Marcantonio


Few things are as transporting as a day at the beach. Crashing waves, miles of white sandy beaches, total and utter bliss. So why bring shabby old towels to the beach when there are so many wonderful designs ready for fun in the sun? Here are a few favorites you can spot from a mile away. Bronzing awaits.

Seafolly's fringe-edged, classic awning stripe towel feels 1950's but it brought up to today's standards with a versatile two-sides---one in velour, the other in terry cloth. You can find it in Stylebeat Shop, here. It also comes in a zesty chartreuse.

I can count on Jonathan Adler for his kicky throwback style, especially when it comes to patterned items. His Mykonos beach towel in green and blue adds some graphic geometric punch to your chaise.
