Lots of Gen Z stars love going to the beach, but no one does summer fashion better than the Cruz sisters. Sam Cruz, in particular, has already mastered the ABCs of the *island girl* style at only 17 years old. Her well-curated closet is chock-full of all the timeless essentials you need to style double tap-worthy OOTDs that will turn heads at the beach. Ahead, we list 10 beach wardrobe staples worth copping from Sam: 

1. Crop Top 

Crop tops are cute when worn alone, but they also double as presko cover-ups when you’re not in the mood for a swim.
