WHAT YOU NEED FOR A DAY ON THE BEACH IN SUMMER 2021 – BEACH TRIP PACKING LIST
To begin with, here are 2021 beach trip must haves. The most important things to bring on a beach trip in 2021. Ps. The beach trip packing list continues, so make sure you read through the end.
What you need for a day on the beach in summer 2021 is a beach towel, protective face mask, SPF for body and face, fashionable swimwear, stylish bucket hat, oversized sunglasses, fashionable dress, or a matching crop top and shorts. Furthermore, flat espadrilles, wedge espadrilles, or fashionable platform flip-flops, canvas tote bag, fashionable basket bag, food and water, and some beach games.
Folding chair, lounger, beach umbrella or cabana, trash bag, mini inflatable pool, lounger float, picnic cooler backpack, underwater camera, and snorkeling set are some things you don’t need to bring to a beach trip. Yet, you might miss them if you don’t take them on your day trip to the beach in 2021.
1 BEACH TOWEL
Wondering what’s the most fashionable beach towel in 2021? I bet you do. After the round towel trend (which is by the way out of style in summer 2021), towels somehow became important for fashion style.
Well, in summer 2021, the title of the most fashionable beach towel belongs to the Dior Oblique towel (you can get it here).
Even so, other luxury designer beach towels are on-trend, also. Browse through the widget below to shop for currently the most fashionable beach towels.

2 SPF FOR BODY
Surely, you don’t want to remember your summer 2021 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.
3 SPF FOR FACE
Even though SHISEIDO Ultimate Sun Protector Lotion SPF 50+ Sunscreen is actually for body and face, I prefer the other two 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 Diorsnow and Giorgio Armani SPF creams for the face. I find those two SPF creams the best for acne-prone sensitive skin, like mine. Besides, I can wear either of both SPF creams under makeup, too.
4 PROTECTIVE FACE MASK
Just in case you are not alone – a protective face mask. Ps. The latest fashion trends call for a face mask that matches your swimsuit.

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

A BEACH BASKET IS WHAT YOU NEED FOR A BEACH TRIP
YOU CAN ALSO BRING WHAT YOU NEED FOR A DAY ON THE BEACH IN A CANVAS TOTE BAG

7 FOOD AND DRINKS
Not that you need to bring that much food on a beach trip now that beach bars are finally open again, but still, you might want to.

9 FASHIONABLE CLOTHES
What to wear on the beach in summer 2021 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 2021 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.
WEAR FLORAL PRINT FOR YOUR FIRST BEACH TRIP OF THE SEASON
STRIPES ARE BACK ON TREND – CONSIDER WEARING THESE CLOTHES FOR A BEACH TRIP
Since cropped tops are in style for summer 2021, you should consider wearing a crop top for your beach trip, especially if you love matching sets.
