    While I shouldn't be surprised that Billabong could make rashguards so cute, I am shook. I was personally victimized by uncomfortable and dorky rashguards that were saggy in all the wrong places for my entire young life and now, with Billabong, there is hope.

    Get it from Amazon and Billabong for $109.95.

    2. A sunscreen that absorbs into your skin so nicely, you'll want to wear it every day (and you should be doing that anyway!)

    The Brelli umbrella is my single favorite thing I've personally purchased this summer. This parasol is handmade in Thailand out of materials that are meant to biodegrade in landfills. The Brelli claims to protect you from 99% of UVA/UVB/UVC rays. While I can say that it is a bit heavy, its carrying case makes it easy to transport and it's just so cute that I wasn't too bothered.

    Get the medium size pink Brelli from Amazon for $84. Available in black, clear and pink, and in four different sizes.

    4. A set of prescription sunglasses that are so cool, people won't even realize they are prescription.

    6. An adorable straw hat that will actually keep you safer from the sun.

    Debbie D / Via

    Promising review: "I purchased this hat to use on my beach vacation. It was easy to pack and sprung right back to life after being rolled into a tiny log and stuffed into my suitcase. It was comfortable, lightweight, and kept my head, neck, face, and decolletage well-protected from the sun's harmful rays with its built-in SPF protection. I love the black tie neatly wrapped around the hat... but if you're not a fan, its easy enough to remove. 5 stars for this hat." —Debbie D.
