Don't kid yourself — going to the beach is a massive production. You have your cooler that's heavy with ice, eight different bottles of sunscreen with varying levels of SPF, and multiple outfit changes. I'm all about minimizing the things I have on my person at all times, which is why I find the Towelkini intriguing as hell. Designed by Aria McManus in collaboration with NYC gallery Special Special, the Towelkini is both a towel, and maybe an outfit if you're brave enough. Just slip into it, and head straight for the sand. It's one less thing to carry, and think of all the money you'll save on sunscreen.
