If you spend any time on the beach, a cover-up is essential. Beach cover-ups are usually single pieces, although some come in skirt/top combinations, and offer protection from sand, sun and surf. They also give you a beautiful finished look that will have heads turning!
Cover-ups are some of the most useful garments in your wardrobe, and many of them can move from beach to bar or party easily. If you are visiting a resort or a friend’s beach house, a cover-up is essential to allow you to move fluidly from beach activity to party or gathering in an instant. A cover-up makes you look instantly sophisticated and sexy, a woman who knows how to dress for every occasion.
The best thing about today’s beach cover-ups is their variety. Whether you want a short, flirty skirt with a spaghetti-strap top or a long maxi-dress with lovely cap sleeves, you can find the perfect look for your body type and the level of formality you want in a beach cover-up.
Body cover-ups with gathered waistlines that fall at the natural waist are better for more rounded figures. Choose a cover-up with a flattering halter top or thin straps to show off a larger bosom. For women with more angular figures, a single-line cover-up may work well, flowing down the body from shoulder to ankle in a beautiful liquid line and gently kissing the body’s curves.
You also have a great variety of choice in color. Many women prefer bright colors for beachwear, and cover-ups in vibrant colors such as brilliant red, neon orange or lime green seem to invite imaginings about a tropical paradise with white sands and soft breezes. On the other hand, a bold geometric pattern in black and white is sizzling and sophisticated, giving you a rich, important look as you lounge by the pool or at a cocktail party.
The hardest part of choosing a beach cover-up is finding the one that perfectly displays your taste and personality, but the shopping will definitely be fun!
