Beauty & The Beach: All the Essentials for Sun, Surf & Sand

back to Curated by Cuvée


Breezy dresses, effortless hair, open toes—summer is all about ease in every way. Looking the part is a matter of embracing those beachy vibes both on and off the sand. To meet the season with serious style, we’ve rounded up our favorite finds to keep you looking and feeling cool and confident as the barometer rises.
      SPF From Head-to-Toe
      Stepping out sans sunscreen in the summer (let alone any day of the year) is like asking for wrinkles and sun damage. Like showering, applying broad-spectrum coverage from your face to your feet should be on daily repeat. Try Supergoop! Everyday Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50, which is water-resistant, oil-free, and formulated without harmful chemicals.
       
      Tousled Texture
      Summer is an excuse to let your hair down in all of its au natural glory, which means air-drying and lots of texture. It’s the only time of year when all that humidity will work to your advantage. To get the most body and beachy-ness from your strands, encourage waves with a styling spray. Try Cuvée Champagne Spray, which conditions your hair and can be applied to damp or dry strands for that covetable lived-in, piece-y texture.
        
      Cute Cover Up
      When you’re going from beach to street, obviously, you need something chic enough to throw over a swimsuit. A silk crepe de chine romper like this one from Camilla is the perfect ensemble. The exotic print and airy fabric has all the bells and whistles, crystals and tassels to get you where you need to go in style.
       
      H20 On The Go
      Staying hydrated in the heat is so important—and especially if you’re spending the day at the beach. A store-bought plastic bottle simply won’t do. Up your water game with our new Cuvée Beauty Water Bottle, which will not only look cool in your gym bag, but will keep your liquids cold for 24 hours.
       
       Chic Carryall
      Totes and summer go hand in hand like avocado and toast. There’s the casual factor and the roominess, which is so necessary when you have to fit all your surf essentials. Sophie Anderson's Jonas tote bag packs all the summer punch—and a few pom-poms—to make a splash everywhere you go.
       
      Fancy Feet
      Flat sandals are a summer prerequisite. Paired with flowy maxis, and your seasonal wardrobe is complete. Elina Linardaki is the queen of the bedecked strappy. These bright, charm-clad Happy-Go-Lucky Sandals will have you hitting your stride since they’re basically like candy for your feet.
       
      Sunless Tanner
      While baking in the sun is a no-no, you can still look like you did. Sunless tanner is your bronzing bestie for a head-to-toe glow. Try St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse, which is easy to apply and dries quickly so you won’t stain your clothing.
       
      Nail polish
      Give your toes (or fingers) a touch of the tropics with bright punchy polish that makes you smile every time you look at it. Deborah Lippmann’s Welcome to Paradise polish set has six shades inspired by the colors of summer, so you can change up your mani or pedi on a whim.
