by Karen A. Pennington

The desire to tap into the season’s latest and greatest fashion trends is universal. We all have a need, when traveling to the beach, to feel we’re getting away from it all, living like the locals, and looking the part in every way. So just what are the latest styles for those living the active waterman’s lifestyle? Best we can tell, these styles include a wide range of options. High-tech form fitting fabrics wick away moisture and protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

Elegant simplicity lies in your favorite old t-shirt paired with just the right shades and a cool pair of leggings.  Bright colors and bold patterns are everywhere, and the more logos one can sport, the better: sportswear companies, favorite races, paddle equipment, you name it. For young and old, from the fittest competitor to the arm chair athlete, here are some looks that will make you want to pack your bags and escape to Wrightsville Beach Island.
