Selecting a beach towel is a surprisingly personal choice. It is the item you display on the beach or poolside that is an extension of your style. Bold colors? More into airy linens? Feeling that stripes are your yacht rock calling? Your tastefully selected terry can tell a distinctive design story. Don’t know what beach towel style you are? Take our quiz to find your beach towel soul mate.

Mostly As – Summer, but make it fashion
Pools in Bel Air and nightclubs in St. Moritz, you have seen it all, expect only the finest bubbly, and believe traveling should include the least amount of physical exertion. Your style spirit animal is a mix between Olivia Palermo and Erica Pelosini and you love bright pops of color to accentuate your summer physique.
Mostly Bs – Viva Burning Man
Your year begins in Tulum, when the tourists leave after New Years, you haven’t missed a Burning Man in ten years, and you feel an overwhelming connection to the earth which you would gladly let anyone know if the conversation arises. Your highlighted hair may be perfectly painted by Marie Robinson and you have seen more sunrises than sunsets. Drink of choice is mezcal on the rocks with fiery spices and a blood orange rind, and you keep playlists long and intense.
Mostly Cs – Cocktails, Cruises, & Cabanas
Port, Starboard, Moscow Mules, and lobster rolls are the sounds of summer to you. You’d rather hop aboard a yacht and leave only for supplies like more Casamigos or limes. Classic cars, stripes, and teak make your heart skip a beat and nothing is more enchanting than the sound of lapping waves on the hull of your Burger yacht cabin (thanks Yachtlife) during the early morning.
