Summer in LA

Beach Day Must-Haves


Summer means time spent outdoors soaking up the sun, and in LA, there is no shortage of opportunities for water-based fun. 


To keep your summer sailing as smooth as possible, we did some research and compiled a list of locally owned businesses you can look into for all your summer accessories and attire needs. 


1. Stylish Swimsuits  

Lucy Boudoir’s super cute swimsuits are perfect for pool and beach trips, and they come in a range of styles and sizes! The Long Beach-based “bra boutique” provides sizing services in-store by appointment, so if you want to be sure your bathing suit top fits perfectly, head over to their website to schedule an appointment.


2. And More Swimsuits

For those of you looking to do your shopping in-store, check out The Beverly Hills Bikini Shop. Their swimsuits also come in a range of styles, and they have beachy cardigans and cover-ups, sun hats, sunscreen, and an assortment of sandals as well.


3. Totes and Towels

LOVESTITCH is a chic women’s clothing store that sells stunning beach day goodies, including tote bags and beach towels. You can also browse their site for outfits perfect for other summer occasions and activities as well.


4. Customizable Water Bottles

Staying hydrated is always important, but especially in the summer months. If you already have a water bottle you love but want to personalize it a bit, check out these stickers! Carrying a reusable water bottle around with you is a must, but when they’re cute and customizable, that’s a bonus. Adding your name also makes it easy to spot and claim.


5. Casual and Quirky Sunglasses

Sunglasses are a summer must-have. Many local Los Angeles creatives have shops on Etsy, so finding locally made sunglasses can be easy. More unique styles, like Palm Leaf Sunglasses and these spunky Astrology Sunglasses, are perfect for those looking to make a statement this summer. Traditional styles, like these Steampunk Sunglasses and Rimless Square Sunglasses, are also super trendy.


Happy shopping, and don’t forget the sunscreen!
