17 Stylish Accessories To Take to the Beach

When you take a beach vacation, the perfect swimsuit is the just the beginning. There are so many great accessories that can really complete the look! I rounded up 15+ stylish beach accessories below that will have you looking and feeling extra chic. Plus some things you may have forgotten about…

17 fun things to pack for the beach including stylish beach accessories

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17

#1 | White Cat Eye Sunglasses

One of the most important things is sun protection. So make sure you take your favorite sunglasses (with UV protection)! These retro, white cat-eye sunglasses are affordable and come in three other colors. They will really make your beach look pop!

#2 | Embellished Sandals

I have these Sam Edelman sandals in a different color and love them! This white pair is perfect for summer and the embellishments give them something extra special. They come in a ton of other colors and print too!

#3 | Sun Hat

As I mentioned, sun protection is VERY important. This hat has a wide brim that will keep you covered up! I love the raw edges and cute white ribbon detail. Here is an affordable packable option if you are traveling.

#4 | 9Seed Coverup

I shared a very similar coverup dress in this post featuring gorgeous white dresses. This dress is perfect for throwing over your swimsuit and heading to the beach or pool. It’s really lightweight and the fabric dries quickly so you don’t have to worry about it clinging to your wet swimsuit.

#5 | Beach Bag

How cute is this bag!? The word beach is actually seashells…how fun!

#6 & #7 | Beach Entertainment

This small Bluetooth speaker is waterproof so you don’t have to worry about touching it with wet hands…just turn up the tunes and relax!

Harper Bazaar described Park Avenue Summer as Mad Men meets The Devil Wears Prada. How good does that sound!? I love Chic Lit! Whether it’s this book or another, make sure you have a good beach read with you!

#8 & #9 | Shell Jewelry

If you like to look super glam when you head to the beach or pool, these earrings and this bracelet are for you! The hoops have a pretty shell dangling. And the bracelet is a charm bracelet style with seashells! Shells are clearly having a moment in fashion!

#10 | Denim Short

Wearing denim shorts over 40 is tricky. I shared more about how to find the perfect pair of denim shorts in this post including tips on the rise, inseam, size, and more! These denim shorts by AGOLDE are amazing! And you can wear them regardless of age. These shorts give me a 90s vibe I love, but with a twist. I love the minimal distressing, raw hem, and high waist. These are not your average high waist shorts…they have a 12.25” rise! So you feel very secure and tucked in. The inseam is 4” so they’re not too short and completely cover your bum.

#11 | Bucket Bag

This bag is great if you don’t have kids and want to travel light to the beach. You can carry your wallet, phone, keys, and sunscreen from the beach to lunch while looking super stylish!

#12 | Sunscreen

 This is a mineral sunscreen by Supergoop! You can find more of my Supergoop favorites in this post. It’s a clean sunscreen and I like that it’s a stick so you don’t have to get sunscreen all over your hands. Find more clean beauty posts here.

#13 | Water Bottle

The next beach accessory is a water bottle! But this water bottle can be monogrammed and comes in a bunch of colors!

#14 | Headband

A little about this headband brand…Kaanas was started after the designers went on a trip to Guajira and saw the weaving patterns of the Wayuu tribe. They mainly make espadrilles and use these same techniques. They produce everything by hand in a small factory in Colombia. Their bags are really cool too!

#15 | Beach Chair

BYOC! If you are driving to the beach and not flying… why not bring your own chic beach chair. 

#16 | Beach Blanket

This is especially important is you have young kids! You need cuddle space for the family and a place to house all the food and sand toys.

#17 | Cooler

The perfect, pretty beach cooler to carry all your beverages and snacks!
