But, what we love most about our sundry shore points — besides, you know, their basic raw materials of sand and glorious sun — is that each locale has its own unique feel. And, this summer, we're making it a personal point to see it all!

Ahead, we map out a summer of unfussy beach combing and the five combos that fit right in. From retro to boho to downright surf-ready, we hope you find inspiration in our sweet game of matchmaker for your own seaside getaways. A shore guide? You bet!
