Many brands have lifted their beachwear game over the past few seasons, and it is very easy to find a multi-functional, yet incredibly stylish beach bag that you can use for an afternoon in the sand, or as a weekend away bag.
Swimming shorts and trunks have not always been synonymous with “style”, however, that has changed drastically over the past few years and now you can get swimming trunks that you can wear all day no matter where you go.

They are also the ideal clothing item for the beach, lightweight and comfortable, you won’t get too hot wearing one, and they offer quite a lot of protection from the sun.
