This year’s beach season is coming your way. Do you have all the beach gear you need? If you’ve already found your dream swimsuit, that’s a step in the right direction. But have you thought about a cover up? Here are some helpful hints for finding a cover up that you will positively love.
Step one: Pair it with your swimsuit
The first tip for finding a coverup you love is to try it on with your swimsuit. You want to pick a coverup that highlights your swimsuit’s features and your body’s curves. Be mindful of where your swimsuit’s straps and neckline fall when you’re wearing the cover up. Do both necklines look good together? Think about the color combination as well, to ensure that your cover up complements your swimsuit colors.
Step two: Flatter your curves
Next, think about the fit. Remember, while flowy is fashionable, frumpy is not. The best cover ups are designed to flatter your figure rather than hide it. For instance, if you want to highlight your bustline and shoulders, you might want to choose a bandeau-style top or shoulder cut-outs. To draw attention to your curves, try a cover up with a fitted waistline. If you want your legs to be in the spotlight, look for side slits and short hemlines. Basically, choose a coverup that reminds you of how beautiful you are.
Step three: Find your style
Cover ups come in all shapes, styles, colors, and designs. Many of them are so cute and trendy that you can wear them with or without your swimsuit. They’re fashionable from the beach to the bar! Here are some styles to consider:
Dress-style cover ups are so versatile. You can wear them in the morning before you hit the sand, to the boardwalk while you’re grabbing lunch, and on the way home after a satisfying day on the surf. Most dress-style cover ups can even double as an evening sundress. Just pair it with a nice pair of summer sandals, and you’re ready to go.
Dress styles come in knee length as well as maxi length. You can’t go wrong with either choice. Knee length cover ups are great for splashing through the waves as you’re walking along the surf. Maxi length cover ups look elegant. They elongate your figure in a way you will love. Whichever you choose, we know you will be stunning!
Tunic-style cover ups and caftan-style cover ups are usually looser than dress-style cover ups. They are comfortable and flowy with sheer breathable fabrics. You will love how awesome you feel when you slip on your new tunic after a day riding the waves. Tunics are the definition of relaxation at the beach.
Dare to be different this summer! Beach pants are a fun way to cover up your bottom half while still rocking your bikini on top. They come in long flowy styles that move gracefully in the beach breeze. There is no doubt that you will turn heads in your stylish beach pants! And if you like to keep your top half free, a sarong-style cover up could look exquisite on you too. A sarong is so lightweight and compact that it can go with you anywhere, anytime. Just wrap it around your waist and…presto!
Swim tees and board shorts are the smart choice if you’re looking for coverage and sun protection. If you’re the active type who loves to surf, paddle board, or kayak in the waterways, a swim tee paired with board shorts could be your answer. Many swim tees are made with SPF sun protection, which means less sunscreen to worry about as you enjoy your water sports.
