In addition to scoring the perfect bathing suit(s) for your trip, there are a few other very important pieces every girl needs to do her beach getaway right. A light read and a handful of go-to fashion mags for lazy, oceanside lounging; a floppy, wide-brim hat to protect her face from glaring UV rays; shades that'll look cute in all of those photos; sunscreen (duh); and a stylish cover-up to round it out, of course.
