After spending a day in the sun, by the pool or at the beach, our skin tends to feel extra sensitive and the last thing you want to do is put on a sandy pair of shorts or a tight camisole. Meet the coverup! Coverups are lightweight, breathable, easy to throw on, and are always comfortable. There are two basic classifications of cover-ups, the dress and the skirt.
When choosing a dress cover-up, you want something loose fitting, and comfortable that will drape over your body. Of course you can wear any style, like the strapless, tunics, halter or spaghetti straps; but this summer the caftan dress is making a huge hit for cover-ups. With their simple design they are flowy and fashionable, and totally comfortable.
Another option of cover-up is the skirt! If you don’t feel comfortable walking down the beach in just your bottoms, you can throw on a skirt and feel more secure. The most popular beach skirt cover-up for this summer is the Pareo or Sarong. Basically this is made of a long tube of woven fabric, that can then be tied either around the waist as a skirt, or around the entire upper torso like a dress. Either way it is easy to throw on and extremely comfortable, which is why it is such a favorite for the beach.
Coverups are the best way for a busy or modest girl to enjoy soaking up the sun. Whether you need to run errands after a day at the beach, want to walk around the shore or pool, or even for just the walk to the parking lot or the drive home, sometimes it is awkward or uncomfortable to be in only your suit. In this case, all you need to do is simply throw one of these adorable pieces over your suit and you will be appropriately covered while still looking beachy cute.
