Must-Have Summer Accessories

Do you find yourself spending more time outside and on the beach? Us too. As we delve deeper into summer, it's suddenly less and less appealing to be indoors. You're realizing, however, that you're missing a few key accessories to ensure maximum fun and peace of mind on your outdoor adventures.

We've gathered up some of our favorite, must-have summer accessories—men, women, and unisex!—to minimize your worries, maximize your carefree attitude, and help make packing easier for your upcoming summer glamping trip.

Men's Glamping Accessories

Get the summer started off right with a few warm-weather additions to your wardrobe. There's an understated cool to this Track Palm t-shirt by Serge DeNimes, as well as these short-sleeve button-ups by J. Crew, featuring swordfish and octopus prints, respectively. On cooler evenings, this Lightweight Cotton Scarf by He by Mango is the ideal complement to any summer ensemble.

A hoodie with a little something extra works just as well for loungewear as it does for a dinner out with friends, and a Fine-Knit Hooded Sweater from H&M does just the trick. Top it all off with a pair of sneakers that create the perfect balance between casual and stylish, like the [M988 by New Balance in Blue Graphite with Chocolate](http://www.newbalance.com/pd/new-balance-m988/M988.html#color=Blue Graphite_with_Chocolate&size=7&width=D).

For daytime explorations or beach trips, a sturdy bag is a must, and we're sure that the Little America Backpack by Herschel in Navy Crosshatch/Straw can fit all of your outdoor essentials—and then some. Throw the Tykho Radio by LEXON Design in your backpack, too, changing the station with pool-wet hands without ever having to worry about it breaking. You can't forget a solid pair of sunglasses, too, no matter where you find yourself during the day, and we've been won over by these wood frames: the Eugene by Shwood Eyewear.

Women's Glamping Accessories

If you're looking to transform your beach style, we've got you covered. Start with this incredible swimsuit, the Garden Isle by Albion, for an instant vintage makeover. Protect your skin in a whole new, natural way with Lush's newly released Sesame Suntan Lotion, which provides natural protection, thanks to walnut leaf infusion, and is vegan, too!

Grab this oversized beach pillow by Raga for the most comfortable nap in the sand you've had yet, and keep out the sun with the Murphy sunglasses by Warby Parker. All of this, except for the pillow, can be safely tossed inside your new canvas and burlap beach tote, like this one by Etsy seller theAtlanticOcean.

For daytime exploring, cover up those luscious locks and prevent a painful scalp sunburn with this effortlessly chic Fedora with Wider Brim by ASOS. Walking around in the summer months gets way more comfortable—and charitable!—with these Multi Tribal Woven Women's Tierra Sandal by TOMS, who donates a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair purchased.

As the cooler night air slips in, cover up with this Fringe Detail Chiffon Kimono by Missguided in Black. Noone will ever know, either, that all night long, you've been secretly charging your phone in your purse (while everyone else is complaining about having 2% battery from spending all day out and about), thanks to the Crossbody Power Purse by Chic Buds in Coral.

Unisex Glamping Accessories

Whether at the pool or on the beach, water and technological devices don't mix; protect your iPhone with the Lifeproof frē phone case, which is waterproof, as well as dirtproof, snowproof, and shockproof! You can finally get that underwater selfie you've always wanted.

Selfie sticks have been sweeping the globe, too, allowing you to take some incredible photos while hanging out poolside or on a glamping trip, and we love Selfie On a Stick's bluetooth version. That way, you'll have plenty of opportunity to put together a collage with Instagram's new Layout app post-vacay.

If you don't fancy cell phone photography, give the Olympus Tough TG-4 a try. This incredible point-and-shoot camera has 16 megapixels, built-in Wi-Fi, and is waterproof, crushproof, shockproof, freezeproof, and dustproof, too.

After taking stunning outdoor photographs all day long, relax on the patio of your choice without ever worrying if the wine will get warm, thanks to this Portable Ice Bag, which also makes for the perfect party accessory.

If you haven't booked a summer glamping trip yet, consider a stay at these luxury yurts in Upstate New York or these tented cabins on the American River near Sacramento, California.
