Sunscreen can get sticky and bug repellent never has a sexy scent. Metallic jewelry gets hot in the sun and heavy in water and however cute they are, high-heeled mules can only take you so far. This summer, stay comfortable AND stylish with our series on useful accessories that will keep you looking your best while helping you fight the heat.
The Straw Beach Tote – You’re Favorite Summer Bag
Let’s face it, you’re not going to the beach with your Chanel 2.55 and a canvas beach tote is sooooo boring. Clear PVC bags are waterproof and allow you to see that you didn’t forget anything but they get hot in the sun and let EVERYONE see that you didn’t forget anything. The best kind of summer carry-all this year is the straw beach tote. Equal parts functional and fabulous, you can be sure you’ll have room for all your beach accessories and stay looking stylish all day through. Get ready for the pool or the beach with the straw beach tote and get ready for your new favorite summer bag.
Why a straw beach tote?
This year’s tote is island-inspired and can hold everything you need for a summer day. Many come in gorgeous colors and many sizes so you can choose one that fits your budget or all the things you need to carry.

Grab one before sumer’s over and then head to the nearest pool, beach, cruise or water park feeling as stylish as can be.
