There is nothing that makes us feel better at the beach or in the pool (other than taking a dip in the water) than a very glamorous blanket. Whether it’s an old-fashioned kaftan, lightweight natural fiber pants, or a chic sarong, a stylish blanket takes your swim look to the next level.
And everyone can’t wait to go back, says Summer saltCEO, president and co-founder of Lori Coulter and brand and digital director and co-founder Reshma Chattaram Chamberlin. “We love cheerful, fun dresses and floral prints that celebrate the joy of the season. And with people venturing beyond their backyards and returning to the world, versatile blankets that range from beach to brunch are in demand. ”
