Summer is in full swing, and one fashion trend has risen to the top of our must-haves list: terry cloth.

Also known as toweling, this trend is as functional as it is fashionable for the summertime. What better fabric to wear on a hot beach or pool day than a lightweight, absorbent material like a towel?

This textured material gives a relaxed, summery vibe to unexpected pieces like bikinis and dresses – and as you’ll see, it isn’t just limited to drying off from a dip in the pool or ocean.

I’ve rounded up the trendiest terry cloth clothing, swimwear, and accessories under $60 to help you rock the trend this summer.
