Summertime means rest and relaxation as life heats up over the coming months. So, to keep you as cool as possible, our trend-spotting Jamie Chandlee, CEO of Rank & Style, and her team have selected the top ten best recommendations for you to enjoy.
SHOW YOUR STRIPES
No matter what water you dive into, you’ll want to towel off at some point. The fashion-forward choice for towels this season is bold stripes. This luxury oversized beach towel is plush but cut close, so you don’t pick up any extra sand. It can be monogrammed, too.

POOL YOUR EFFORTS
A pool cover-up with a sleek sun-inspired geometric print and pockets? Absolutely. In non-stretch terry cloth, the jersey-lined drawstring hooded poncho has 3/4 sleeves with open sides. It’s perfect from poolside to lunch…and beyond.

Whimsical and fun, Brent Neale’s jewelry collections are a nod to the psychedelic vibe of the 60s and 70s. This 18-K gold necklace is strung with a mushroom inlaid with pale-green opal, multicolored sapphires, and an emerald.

GO AHEAD, SUIT YOURSELF
What has a flattering one-shoulder neckline and cutout along the waist? Our favorite swimsuit. The Lena Nile suit, with seamless seersucker fabric, has the same shape-enhancing characteristics of the brand’s signature crinkle, yet expect a smoother appearance.

Comfort never looked so on trend. The Arizona Love Trekky raffia-trimmed canvas platform sandals became an internet sensation due to the chunky foam soles, which make them such a comfortable choice for a day of sightseeing.

The Supergoop! Glowscreen SPF 40 sunscreen primes for the day’s makeup and leaves a dewy, glowing finish. With sun protection and a major added boost of hydration, the blend of hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B5 that leaves skin naturally supple and dewy from the inside out.

FOR MY NEXT HAT TRICK…
The only trick to wearing a hat well is the correct size. After that, it’s all about personal style. We recommend the insider’s favorite…the Isabella Multicolor hat with bright zig-zag design on the crown and fans on the brim.

BEACH TO MARKET
Prada’s tote bag truly is the perfect summer carryall. The retro-inspired design has a generously sized, softly structured silhouette woven from striped raffia, and embroidered with the label’s iconic emblem. It’s the ideal, practical accessory.
