Spreading a giant beach towel onto the sand is like staking out your design territory. This Summer, pack a beach towel that packs design punch.

I love the preppy look of this Lacoste Tournois Mer Beach Towel ($30, reduced from $40), but I've found something for every style. Consider incorporating a beach towel into your decor or using it as a tablecloth for a casual Summer party. Check out 15 choice finds below.
When heading to the beach or pool this Summer, don't forget to take a fashionable towel along for the fun. But Fab, who's going to pay attention to my towel? Everyone! A beach towel is just as much a part of your ensemble as your sassy swimsuit. Would you leave the house without a chic coat in the Winter?

Patricia Field presented a collection of swimwear for House of Field on a New York city rooftop Tuesday night, the day after her Radio City red carpet appearance for the Sex and the City 2 premiere. Field had guests sipping drinks poured from limited edition SATC bottles of Skyy vodka (although the cast was not present), while mannequins and models showed off House of Field swimwear and accessories. “It’s beachwear to look gorgeous in, to create a sensation around the pool in,” Field said. Adding that the suits (priced from $90 to $150) can actually get wet.
