Our favorite beach towels this season are all about simple graphics: bold color blocks and summery stripes in linen or Turkish cotton. And they're often big enough to share with friends, or even to use as bedspreads or wall hangings. Here are 10 summery standouts. Which is your favorite? Above: The Uniform Adult Beach Towel from Australian company Kate & Kate is $119 AUD ($87 USD). Above: Designed in collaboration with Todd Heim Projects, Fredericks & Mae's  Linen Towels  are made of 100 percent Irish linen (which holds about 20 times its weight in water and dries much more quickly than terry towels). They're available in four banded patterns and measure 80 by 56 inches (perfect for twin bed covers); $300 each. Above: Anthropologie's timeless  Awning Stripe Towels  in navy and white look great stacked together; made of Turkish cotton, they're $68 each. Above: Todd Heim Projects (the same workshop that produces the Fredericks & Mae design above) offers its own 100 percent Irish linen  Beach Towels   in a range of corals, marine blues, and bright citrus stripes. Handmade in Brooklyn, they measure 8 0 by 56 inches   and are machine washable; $300. Above: For purists, Everlane's  Terry Pool Towels  come  in navy and white, and  are made in Turkey from 100 percent cotton yarns; $40. Above: The Deck Towel  is another  linen design that you may be tempted to use as bedsheet or throw.  Offered in solids and a variety of stripes, Deck Towels are made of 100 percent Irish linen and measure 70 by 57 inches; $178. Above: Made from hand-loomed cotton, Pisu's  Fouta Turkish Towel  is both lightweight and absorbent. It's 67 by 36 inches and is available at Steven Alan in three soft shades: gray (shown),  raspberry, and denim ; $45. Above: Substantial enough for two, Etsy seller Chosiette's 56-by-70-inch  Simone Beach Towel  is handmade in the US from washed linen; $108. Above: The 8 Knots  Seersucker Stripe Towel , 36 by 70 inches, is made from Aegean cotton and finished with hand-knotted tassels. Available at Lekker Home in three striped color combinations; $49. They're also sold at  Indigo & Cotton . Above: In subtle ticking and charcoal chambray, these 47-by-70-inch  Linen Beach Towels/Picnic Blankets  from Alder & Co. are handmade in France; $120. Above: Another ample towel, Serena and Lily's 40-by-70-inch  Turkish Fouta  combines smooth cotton on one side and terry on the other; $48.
