Summer's here. The heatwave's already begun, and that's your cue to start packing for the seaside, ASAP! Take with you the essentials—a bikini or three, some powerful sunscreen, and a beach towel...emphasis on that last one, because it's going to double as your new favorite photo prop.
See what we mean? While a terrycloth-swathed head has been the subject of countless fashion shoots for years (check out Mario Testino's famous Towel Series for reference), it's only become a certified Instagram trend as of late.
The difference is that you don't have to worry about an artfully-executed wrap. Just grab your current fave maillot, toss that towel on the way you would after a satisfying shower, and maybe add a pair of gaudy statement earrings. Bundle that saltwater-sprayed mane in place!
