Nothing quite compares to the take-my-money magic that happens when two of your favorite brands team up for the ultimate collab, so if you're a fan of both L.L.Bean and Summersalt, you might want to start reaching for your wallet. The iconic outdoors brand and the cult-favorite swim label have just launched a new summer collection packed with stylish swimwear and outdoor gear to get the whole family prepped for vacation, including cover-ups, towels, beach chairs and even a paddleboard—so it's really the only thing you'll need to shop this season to get the gang ready for summer fun.

A few things I'm most excited about in the collection? These breezy wide-leg pants ($70), which are made from 100 percent cotton, have just the casual, cool look I love for slipping over a swimsuit to grab a quick snack after a couple hours of lounging in the sun. Plus, they'd look perfect paired with the cropped button-up shirt ($60) made of the same breezy fabric.

I've also got my eye on the vibrant new hues of the Sidestroke swimsuit ($115), one of Summersalt's best-selling styles that's been redesigned in limited-edition color schemes just for this collaboration. Meanwhile, the backpack beach chair ($99) and Bayside inflatable paddle board ($649) stand out for their fun-yet-functional recreation-ready designs. And, of course, I could never resist a fresh version of L.L.Bean's iconic canvas tote bag ($50).


When it comes to finds for the rest of the fam, kids will love the patterns on this adorable ruffle one-piece ($50) and this reversible bucket hat ($40), while the men in your life will appreciate the stretchy waistband and functional pockets on these classic swim trunks ($80).

I'm wasting no time filling up my cart with these splashy styles and accessories—they are limited-edition after all—and I suggest you do the same, starting with some more of my favorite picks from the L.L.Bean x Summersalt collab below.
