This summer, arm yourself with the ultimate arsenal of gear fit for the beach.
Here are five solid options based on our beach bucket list.
Standing out isn't really an option when you're on a tiny strip of land on Long Island that, every summer weekend, is home to some of the wealthiest people in the country. But while they'll be decked out in their overpriced Euro-label summer garb, these handmade glass bracelets will attract all of the right attention. Whether it's a backyard pool or one of East Hampton's scenic beaches, they'll hold up to all sorts of water wear. Stack 'em on top of your favorite summer watch for a little extra sprezz.

Card holder, $125
by Lotuff x Wittmore
Accessible, affluent and with over half the population employed in the arts, Santa Monica doesn't disappoint in the culture department. While the rest of LA can hit steamy temperatures upwards of 90 degrees, this seaside city hovers around 75 degrees year-round. So yeah, it's pretty much perfect, which conveniently relates to this ideal cardholder made by Lotuff for LA-based boutique, Wittmore. It only has room for the essentials: a few cards, an ID and a some cash. You may miss the heft of a fold wallet, but the absence will soon be forgotten once you're sipping on your first negroni downtown.
Whether you're campaigning on the catamaran through the Virgin Islands or posting up on Peter Island with bae, the sun's rays are going to be coming strong. Protect your money maker with a brimmed hat. Nothing says casual beach action like a canvas bucket hat a la Jay-Z in his Big Pimpin' music video. This Gitman bucket provides the necessary design and detail without going full Gilligan.
