Essential Beach Accessories: 3 Under $30

Brianne DiSylvester

Garden Print Crinkle Cover-up; Target
Ladies, beach weather is finally in full swing. Can I get a woo hoo?!

Chances are you already stocked up on a bathing suit or two, so all you need now are the essentials.

I found this super-cute Garden Print Crinkle Cover-up ($19.99) at Target.

I'm totally digging the paisley-inspired print at the bottom, the ruffle at the bust, and the combo of yellow, pink, white, and deep purple.

You could wear this as strictly a beach cover-up or take it on the town for an easy sun-to-supper look.

PS: It's already crinkly by design so you don't have to worry about balling it up in your tote.

Print Canvas Tote; Target

Woven Stripes Floppy Hat; Forever 21












Stuff all your goods into this jumbo Print Canvas Tote ($12.99) from Target.

It's large enough to fit your towel, cover-up, sun-block, and sunnies, and the cotton canvas makes it super-durable against sun, sand, wind, and water. 

There is also a zippered pouch inside -- great for money or keeping your cell and iPod sand-free.

Finally, top off your look with a Woven Striped Floppy Hat ($9.80) from Forever 21.

The lightweight khaki and red hat will shield you from harsh rays but also let your head breathe thanks to the woven fabric.

What is the one accessory you must take to the beach?
