It’s the dog days of July. No matter how hot you are… you must cover up, girl! As we showcase our summer swimsuits at the beach, we can’t ignore our swimsuit’s best friend, a cover-up. Today’s beach cover-ups are so great and diverse! They are stylish, lightweight, comfortable, and flattering for all shapes and sizes. They do not weigh you, your suitcase, or beach bag down.
Cover-ups can go from home to beach to the tiki bar. They help protect us from sunburns. These cover-ups can be styled with flip-flops, sandals, wedges, and even heels. You can really go creative with your jewelry.
With so many style choices, it can be difficult to find just the right one. Do you want a crocheted or lace top, gauze or sheer dress, maxi or miniskirts, printed or solid colors, jumpsuit or pants? It can be mind-blowing!
An oversize shirt or an asymmetrical shirtdress provides the borrowed-from-the-boys flirty look, showing off just the right amount of skin. Even a classic white T-shirt can go a long way over a bright-colored suit. We love the versatility of beach caftans. Make a dramatic entrance in a maxi skirt paired with a bikini top. Vertical stripes give the illusion of a longer body and slimmer hips for a pear-shaped frame. A relaxed, loose-fitting dress flatters a boyish frame.
One of our favorite cover-ups is the butterfly tunic. This cover-up is flattering for all shapes and sizes. We can all use one of these! The butterfly style has an elastic tie waist. The style accentuates the waist, lower legs, and forearms. An added plus… one size fits all! What better way to spend the day than to throw on this simple look, go to the pool or beach, and then grab a bite to eat and not have to worry about going home to change first?
Have some fun with different styles. Check out these unconventional cover-ups featured in Harper’s Bazaar.
It is not too late to show off your favorite beach cover-ups before summer is officially over.
