The Zoe Report might be headquartered in sunny Los Angeles but that doesn’t stop us from daydreaming about tropical getaways. These days, vacation buys are about more than new sunnies and sarongs—extra large, extra glamorous beach towels are popping up everywhere, magnifying our longing for white sand and crystal-clear water. If you want to up your beach game, Maslin & Co and Zuzunaga’s high-quality, inventive designs kick any black bikini up a notch. For something under $100, Pendleton’s signature prints work beautifully on the sand, and the One Kings Lane website keeps a fun (and budget conscious) array in stock year-round. (We’re picturing their emerald Turkish towel with a Eres bikini and a topknot.) Here, the six styles we’re eyeing this week. The only thing left to do after clicking “buy” on one of these is to purchase a plane ticket.
