While a bathing suit is typically an essential part of any beach ensemble, let your accessories steal the spotlight. A lightweight hat adds instant impact to any look, while protecting you from harmful UV rays. Pair it with a bikini top and high-waisted shorts for a practical, comfortable, and appropriately chic look that’ll make you stand out in a sea of swimsuits.
