The editors of InStyle magazine have found the best new bathing suits and beach accessories, everything from the best beach towel to the must-have summer beach hat!
InStyle Market Director Toby Tucker Peters brought several to The Early Show Tuesday.
Look No. 1: Animal Print
Victoria's Secret (top $48; bottom $38)
It's a giraffe print, which Peters says is the most subtle of the animal prints and a great way to go bold on the beach. Glam Gold rings at the hips and bust add sex appeal.
Golden leather and hemp tote: Rue des Nanettes ($395); vivre.com
Speaking of metallics: Also included are some fantastic gold espadrille slides. They're easy to slip on and super comfortable, yet add an edge with the sparkle. Gold espadrille slides - Nine West - www.ninewest.com
Raffia Hat to help shade you in the sun: Hat Attack ($75), www.hatattack.com
Wraparound Sunglasses: Dior ($280); Available at Nordstrom. They're "functional but gorgeous," says Peters
Gold Hoops: Slane and Slane
Look No. 2: Bold Printed Suit
Seafolly (top $54; bottom $50)
It's a fun print, and Peters says you shouldn't shy away from a pattern on a swimsuit. The amount of fabric used is smaller, so the print can be stronger than what you would wear on clothing.
This cut helps maximize a smaller bust and trim a long torso. The funky pattern distracts from a petite chest, and bandeau tops shorten the length of the body.
