Choosing a favourite beach towel is like picking a favourite child, too hard so instead I’m going to show you a few of my favourites. Beach towels aren’t just something you grab from the linen cupboard to dry off with…well not for me anyway.
As with my clothes I like my towels to do double duty, I love a special feature or two, some colour and personality and these baby’s don’t disappoint.
TURKISH/MOROCCAN TOWELS– these are so awesome and so bloody versatile. Lightweight woven cotton with super absorbency powers. I love them because they are extremely quick drying, take up next to no space in my beach bag and they actually dry me off quick sticks. Turkish towels are the perfect travel companion, wear them as a skirt, sarong, wrap or scarf. I’ve been known to use mine as a tablecloth at parties and as a bed runner on the ends of beds for a pop of colour.
ROUND TOWELS– whoever would have thought hey?! I purchased this Beach People roundie towel recently and I’m a little in love. This towel has epic proportions, which also makes it a little heavy but hey I don’t mind. It’s got sturdy fringing, stunning colour and pattern and makes a statement. It’s a good wrap to snuggle into when the wind whips up on the beach or lay it out for a picnic in the park.
FASHION LUXURY– Eb&Ive would have to be one of my favourite labels in the summertime. The price point is always good, a kaleidoscope of colours and their accessories just get better and better. I purchased one of their luxury towels last summer as a little ‘I’m on holiday’ treat and was hooked., the good folk at Sequins and Sand have sent me this new season pink one which is so bright and colourful it just oozes summer.
One side is toweling and the other fabric, there’s fringing, pretty prints and the genius stroke…a concealed zip pocket! I know right, who doesn’t love pockets right girls. This pocket holds my goggles, cash, keys or phone and the towels also come with a convenient carry strap. This year the team are doing the towels to co ordinate with their summer clothing range so you can feel totally put together on the beach…thanks team.
As with all good beach towels treat them with a little kindness and they will reward you with years of use. Always rinse them in cold water after use, wash in gentle detergents and bring them in from the harsh sun once dried.Any of these towels would make an awesome Christmas gift, the perfect way to hit the beach in style.
Do you love beach towels as much as me?
