Now that things are finally warming up and summer is right around the corner, it's only a matter of time before you start getting invited out to picnics, parties and beach days. Now makes a great time to stock up on some summer essentials so you're ready to go no matter what the plan is!

First you need to look the part and that means grabbing a new pair of khaki shorts and a patterned shirt, right?

You can't go wrong with a new pair of Dockers which come in a ton of colors, the best being Sand Dune Khaki!

If you want the Khaki vibe but want to look less like a Fed on the beach, you can go with a pair of linen shorts that will keep you cool all day long. Hey, if linen was good enough for Jesus it's good enough for us!

Now that you've got some Khakis it's time to pick out a new Hawaiian shirt, which is always appropriate, especially now that the style has made a major comeback.

Grab a classic style like this bold blue and white print short sleeve!

Or something a little classier like this green and white palm print

Prints are in for the ladies too, this floral bikini is a bestseller and very in style this season.

Or you can keep it classy with this gold metallic suit

Everyone needs a good coverup in their bag, these sarongs are breathable and come in 17 different colors.

A new pair of sandals are also a must, you don't need to be bringing last years sand to the party! These Tory Burch sandals are $200, but they are stylish!

You can also never got wrong with a new pair of slides!

If you're heading to the beach, there is nothing that says "I'm the coolest motherfricker on this beach" than the iconic Tommy Bahama folding beach chair. Is it inconvenient to haul to the beach? Yes. But is it the most comfortable chair in the sand? Also yes.

Everyone needs some sort of sun protection and Sun Bum is a popular brand that offers protection from that hot sun, before Bill Gates dims it...

Get the Sun Bum Reef Safe Spray sunscreen

Or if you're a lotion person like myself, grab a bottle of the Original SPF 50!

Sun Bum also offers a browning lotion to help you achieve an epic tan without burning to a crisp!

Now that you're oiled up, it's tome for some outdoor activities! Here are a few game options to keep you busy down on the beach, while camping or even at a summer pool party!
