THE ESSENTIALS

THE PERFUME

DOLCE

A day at the beach calls for a perfume that matches the view. We love Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. The sparkling scent, inspired by the cerulean waters of the Mediterranean, is the perfect perfume for a summer trip.

Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue ($72

CAT-EYE SUNGLASSES

CAT-EYE SUNGLASSES

Our favorite beachside activity? People-watching. Give your mascara the day off, and allow your eyes a moment in the shade for a bit of (discreet) street-style spotting.

Alexander McQueen Cat-Eye Acetate and Metal Sunglasses ($395)

BEACH LIT

A leisurely day at the beach is only complete with an enjoyable tome seated on your lap. The guilty-pleasure variety is preferable.

POLISH

DG

It’s always a good idea to plan ahead in the mani department, but you can’t know how your nail polish will fare in the sand and salty waters. Keep a trusty nail file and your favorite nail polish on standby.

Dolce & Gabbana Nail Lacquer ($25)

SPF

SPF

Sunblock is a must-apply, especially if the plan is to lay out in the sun all day. Be safe!

La Mer SPF 50 UV Protecting Fluid ($85)

A BIT OF BALM

BALM

Protect lips from the salty air with a delicious dab of your favorite lip balm or tinted conditioner.

Sisley Paris Comfort Extreme Nutritive Lip Balm ($72)

HAIR BRUSH

BRUSH

Two words: Roman Holiday. Achieving a sexy, swept-away mane is a vacationer’s dream, but it’s best to keep a hairbrush handy for unpredictable moments (or zippy rides on Vespas).

Mason Pearson Large Popular Mixture Bristle Brush ($205)

SLIDE SANDALS

SLIDE

Take every opportunity to show off your summer pedicure with a pair of cool and comfy slip-on sandals.

Marni Textured-Leather sandals ($730)

CLASSIC WIDE-BRIM HAT

HAT

Add a touch of late-‘60s glam to your look with a vintage-inspired topper. This fun and statement-making accessory will elegantly frame your face and keep the bright rays at bay.
