To buy:, $49

The towels, which are available in light green, coral, grey, and navy stripe combinations, are made from 100 percent cotton. What makes them stand out is their double-sided design — one side is flat-woven with a smooth texture that's soft and comfortable for lounging, while the other side features absorbent terrycloth loops that will be sure to dry you off quickly after a swim. This design makes them lightweight and easily packable, unlike many plush yet bulky towels, without compromising the soft, comfortable feel that will keep you warm and dry. Your kids can also enjoy these cozy, quick-drying towels, since they're available in a junior size in fuchsia and light blue for $39.

These towels join RiLEY Home's customer-loved Hamptons Beach Towels, which are also made from 100 percent cotton, crafted in Portugal, and receive rave reviews on the brand's website. Shoppers praise them for being "soft to the touch and not too thick, which makes them easy to fit in a bag."

These towels just launched and will be sure to be a hot-ticket item this summer, so you won't want to miss out on pre-ordering them.
