Best Beach Cover-Ups, Exposed

Some situations are made for flaunting it in your new animal print bikini, but others (say, when you’re diving head first into a California burrito with a side of beer) call for a little more creativity to stay cool while still looking hot. That’s where a breezy beach cover-up comes in. Although there’s no doubt you’d have an easier time flagging down the ice cream man sans-pants, you have to remember that not everyone can pull off the Pam Anderson slow run with as much class as the original. So keep it classy, keep it breezy, and keep your skin from getting fried from an entire day of soaking up the sun. Keep a cute cover-up handy and look chic on the commute to and from the sand. Our top three favorites this summer:

 

1. Lightweight, long maxi dresses that keep the sun off without sacrificing style.

3. The T-Shirt Dress. With a hint of 80’s oversized tee charm, and a big dose of the breeze factor, the T-shirt dress is a great cover-up to match this summer’s neons, animal prints, and retro sunglasses.
