The Best Beach Towels for Every Vibe

Whether you’re spending the afternoon lounging poolside or sunbathing at the beach, the right beach towel can make waterside activities a lot more enjoyable. That’s why it helps to know what type of beach towel will best suit your unique personal style. So, to make your summer go more swimmingly, we rounded up a few beach-friendly Brooklinen towels to complement every aesthetic vibe. From bold, modern glam-minded styles to fringed Turkish cotton towels for earthy minimalists, these beach towels allow you to dry off in style.


 1. Earthy Minimalist

If you’re a fan of eclectic, boho-style interiors with lots of clean lines and natural textiles, then chances are you consider yourself an earthy minimalist. This means you’ll need a beach towel that’s simple but sophisticated, such as the Hammam Beach Blanket and Towel Bundle in a muted shade like Red Pepper. Composed of breezy Turkish cotton, this striped terry-backed towel and blanket set has fringed edges for an added touch of texture and flair.

Looking for a minimalist-minded beach towel with a little more oomph? The 70’s-inspired Beach Towel in Wave Runner features an earthy blue and green patterned motif that’s casual but colorful at the same time.


 2. Modern Glam

If you thought there was no such thing as a glamorous beach towel then it’s time to think again. The bold red and blue hues of the Beach Towel in Sunset are sure to make a statement whether you’re lounging at the beach or poolside. Designed with extra soft and absorbent terry and velour, this eye-catching towel is every bit as comfortable as it is commanding.

In the market for a modern beach towel that’s slightly more subdued? The Hammam Towel in Grape offers a contemporary take on classic Turkish cotton towels while supplying a pop of personality and color.  


 3. Relaxed Industrial

If relaxed, industrial-style spaces are more your speed, then we found the beach towel for you. The Hammam Towel in Pebble comes clad in stone-gray stripes and hand tied tassels for a chic but unfussy look.  

Dreaming of a cool but casual beach towel with a bit of pizazz? With a design inspired by the water, sand and waves, the Beach Towel in Cabana boasts a muted red, blue, and cream pattern that’s simultaneously edgy yet sleek.
