Wondering what’s the most fashionable beach towel in 2024? I bet you do. After the round towel trend (which is, by the way, out of style in summer 2024), towels somehow became important for fashion style.

Well, in summer 2024, the title of the most fashionable beach towel belongs to the psychedelic sunshine Beach Towel.

Pov, As you unfold the towel on the sand, you’ll be captivated by its vibrant hues, hypnotic designs, and trippy patterns that create a stunning and mesmerizing visual feast. You will feel like a part of the summer vibe and the cutting-edge of fashion with this accessory by your side.

This psychedelic trend has even made its way onto beaches of Malibu to the Mediterranean, making the psychedelic sunshine beach towels the go-to item for the fashion-savvy beachgoer.

Embrace the trend and let the towel transport you to a world of vibrant colors, abstract designs, and pure relaxation.



Surely, you don’t want to remember your summer 2024 beach day trip after a sunburn, do you? Then better get SHISEIDO Ultimate Sun Protector Lotmate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50++ SunSunscreen (buy here US – buy here EU/UK). Trust me, this sunscreen cream is the best.

Pov, not just any sunscreen will do. You need the perfect combination of protection and beauty, and that’s where SHISEIDO Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen comes in.

Imagine yourself walking on the beach with this pretty and fashionable sunscreen, protecting your skin while also enhancing your natural beauty. Its smooth and silky texture will effortlessly blend into your skin fast. This sunscreen is very effective. With an SPF of 50+, it will shield your skin from harmful UV rays, keeping you safe while you bask in the sun.

This sunscreen has been my favourite for years. And you know, I know how to protect my skin from the sun’s harmful rays while also looking my best. With SHISEIDO Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen, you can do the same.


Even though SHISEIDO Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen is actually for body and face, I prefer the other three SPF creams for the face.

Rest assured SHISEIDO Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen is great for the face, too.

But I simply prefer DiorsnowGiorgio Armani SPF, and Chanel UV Essentiel SPF 50 creams for the face. I find those three SPF creams the best for acne-prone sensitive skin, like mine. Besides, I can wear all of these SPF creams under makeup, too.

The only problem, they keep selling out. Pov, consider yourself lucky if you get the chance to buy them online.


As you step onto the warm, sandy shore of the beach, you can feel the sun’s rays caressing your skin, and the salty ocean breeze gently blowing through your hair. The sound of waves crashing against the shore soothes your soul, as you take in the stunning scenery before you.

You can’t help but feel the urge to dive into the crystal-clear water and let it wash away all your worries. But wait! You suddenly realize that you didn’t pack your swimwear. Oh, no! How could you forget the most important item for your beach trip?

Without your swimwear, you’ll miss out on all the fun of swimming, playing beach volleyball, and building sandcastles with your loved ones. You’ll miss the opportunity to feel the exhilarating rush of cool water enveloping your body, washing away all your troubles, and leaving you feeling refreshed and alive.

Don’t let this happen to you. Make sure to pack your swimwear before embarking on your beach trip. But not just any swimwear. Make sure you bring the most fashionable swimwear of the season.

You deserve to bask in the sun, feel the sand between your toes, and experience the joy of being trendy on the beach.

Picture yourself on the beach, the warm sun on your skin and the cool breeze blowing through your hair. As you step onto the beach wearing your chic sunhat, you feel a sense of excitement and confidence wash over you. Your hair dances in the wind, and you feel like a movie star, ready for your close-up. The way the hat frames your face and adds an extra layer of dimension to your outfit makes you feel like you’re the lead in a romcom.

But it’s not just about the way you look – it’s about the way you feel. With your trendy sunhat on, you feel so beautiful. You know that you have the power to turn heads and make an impact on the beach.

Everyone notices your effortless style and your undeniable confidence. You know that your sunhat has elevated your beach look to the next level, making you stand out from the crowd and exuding a sense of sophistication and elegance.

Btw I bought myself this Eugenia Kim sun hat, but you might also like the hats in the widget below.



Another summer accessory that is essential for a beach day? Sunglasses, obviously.

Sunglasses protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun, but they also add an extra layer of style and sophistication to your beach outfit. Whether you’re lounging on a beach chair, taking a dip in the ocean (cringe, I always swim with my sunglasses on), or strolling along the shore, a pair of sunglasses can make all the difference.

But it’s not just about the practical benefits. No cap sunglasses are giving. You feel confident, glamorous, and ready to make your move. Rizz!

As you pack for your beach day, make sure to bring a stylish pair of sunglasses that can protect your eyes and elevate your beach style. Whether you’re going for a classic look with a pair of aviators, or want to make a statement with bold frames and colorful lenses, there’s a pair of sunglasses out there that’s perfect for you.



Now that you have packed all the beach trip must haves, it’s time to pack some other things, too.


First, a beach basket. While you can carry beach trip must haves in your hand, you will need a beach bag for other things from my summer 2024 beach trip packing list.

Choose a fashionable beach bag – either a raffia tote or a trendy rectangular basket bag. Browse through the widget below to find the most stylish beach baskets.


With its woven texture and natural colors, your rectangular basket bag is a perfect bag for a day on the beach or a short beach trip. Roomy enough for a sunscreen, sunglasses, towel, a good book, food, water bottle, extra clothes, extra pair of shoes, and even beach games (including that fun perfume bottle float), but lightweight and easy to carry.

Practical but romantic, as you walk along the shoreline, you will feel like a lead Barbie in a Barbie movie, embracing the magic and beauty of the ocean.


Bringing food and a water bottle along for your beach day is quite smart. Not only will it keep you hydrated and energized, but it will also allow you to fully enjoy all the activities the beach has to offer without searching for a beach bar. Or waiting for your food delivery. Btw can you even get a food delivery to the beach? No cap, the delivery guy/girlie takes a dip before you get your pizza.

Pov Your new beach bag is big enough to bring your entire refrigerator (or at least this cooler bag) to the beach with you.

Imagine this, you take a sip of water from your pink bottle and feel the cool liquid slide down your throat, quenching your thirst and refreshing your body. It’s a simple act, but in this moment, it feels so refreshing.

As you reach for a piece of fruit from the bag of snacks you brought along, you savor the sweetness and juiciness of each bite. The flavours explode in your mouth, and you feel a sense of gratitude for the simple pleasures of life. The sun’s warmth on your skin, the sound of the waves crashing against the shore, and the taste of fresh fruit – these are the things that make life truly beautiful.

As you continue to drink from your pink water bottle and nibble on your snacks, you feel a deep sense of connection to the world around you. You’re no longer just a bystander, observing the beauty of the beach from a distance. You’re a part of it, fully immersed in the experience and savoring every moment.



Rest assured, you won’t get bored on the beach in 2024, but just in case you do, here are some fun games to play on your beach day trip.



What to wear on the beach in summer 2024 to be the most fashionable?

No, not gingham – you should wear gingham print on a staycation in your garden; nor the tropical print – save clothes in tropical print for your future beach vacation.

For the summer 2024 beach trip, wear clothes in stripes or a fashionable floral print. This way, you will look fashionable on the beach, plus have an excuse for a staycation in your garden and a future seaside vacation to wear the other prints this summer, too.


Indulge in trendy summer clothes crafted to sweep you off your feet and carry you away to the serene shores of the beach. Let your beach trip outfit be a reflection of the effortless charm that flows within you, effortlessly translating from city chic to seaside sophistication.

The bliss of vibrant hues and vivacious styles await you when the sun, sand, and sea come calling. Revel in moments of pure joy, draped in the simple elegance of streamlined silhouettes that accentuate your natural beauty. Immerse yourself in the lightness of airy fabrics that gracefully flutter in the ocean breeze, revealing tantalizing peeks of skin and fashionable swimwear. Layer them over your swimsuits and oversized silk shirts, as you embark on a journey from the beach to the bar, indulging in the moments of tranquil delight that await.


I don’t know how many shoes you usually bring for a trip, but I always bring more than just two pairs for a beach trip. One to walk in the sand and second in case the first pair gets wet.


folding chair is an essential item for any beach day, and for good reason. Not only does it provide a comfortable place to sit and relax, but it also keeps you off the hot sand and away from any pesky bugs or critters that may be lurking.

But it’s not just about practicality – a folding chair can also add an extra level of style and sophistication to your beach day. With a variety of colors and styles to choose from, you can find a folding chair that perfectly matches your personal taste and beach aesthetic.

With a folding chair at your disposal, you can fully immerse yourself in the beach experience. Whether you’re reading a book, sipping on a cold drink, or simply soaking up the sun, a folding chair provides the comfort and convenience you need to fully relax and enjoy your beach day.

Pov I don’t think a folding chair is lightweight and easy to carry, little less being like a breeze to transport to and from the beach. But hey, that’s why you brought the entire gang to the beach with you. You, girlies, can carry anything together.


Ok, girlies, you might need an extra pair of hands to help you bring a cabana, or an umbrella. Pov not that’s really heavy, but just so unpractical. Nevertheless, with a cabana or beach umbrella in tow, you can enjoy all the fun and beauty of the beach without the worry of getting too much sun. Whether you’re there for relaxation, adventure, or just stunning views, a beach umbrella provides the comfort and protection you need to fully enjoy your beach day.

But it’s not just about staying safe and comfortable – a beach umbrella can also add an extra layer of fun and entertainment to your beach day. Whether you’re using it to create a cozy picnic spot, setting up a game of cards, or just lounging under the shade with a good book, a beach umbrella provides a versatile and convenient space for all of your beach activities.


Surely, you can put all the waste and trash into your canvas tote. But still, in case you have some used diapers, you would thank me for reminding you to bring the trash bag with you to the beach.


Copy the list and paste it into your notes. Or screenshot. But pasting it into the notes might be a smarter move. You can add the brackets for each item in the notes. Just make sure you select “make a checklist” once you copy this list in the notes. That function is so useful.


So, here is everything you need for a beach trip in summer 2024. Everything you need for a day on the beach to look fashionable and stay safe.

However, if you prefer to bring your entire flat on your seaside trip, then check my beach vacation checklist, too. You can use that checklist instead of the beach trip packing list.
