Beach Style: Selecting The Perfect Cover-Up

Raise your hands if you’re excited about summer! A few more glorious weeks until vacation and we will have the chance to press the reset button. When it comes to beach style, it’s easy to get it wrong; not all sarongs can be worn on the sand and crochet sundresses can’t protect you from sunburn! It’s time for the cover-up to get a makeover because beachwear is about more than kaftans!

Denim Mini

While we know you love cut off shorts why not give them a well-deserved rest and show off your suntanned legs in a faded denim mini skirt. The mini skirt arrived in a blaze of glory (in the sixties) representing freedom and self-expression as thousands of young women discovered its sex appeal! These days, mini skirts come in various styles, shapes and colors. A faded denim mini is cute, comfy, and an easy way to infuse your outfit with a festival vibe. Think beach wave curls, minimal jewelry, flip flops, and a white tank top for a pretty, natural look.

Open Kimono

Kimonos has stormed the catwalk to become a much-loved fashion staple. A beautiful, silk kimono dresses up a pair of jeans, cold shoulder or lace tank top while being a fabulous alternative to a coat or jacket when the weather’s warm. Kimono’s also look gorgeous over a bikini and act as an instant cover up. They inject glamour into the most basic outfit. Thanks to their silk ties you can either wear them open (for sunbathing) or loosely tie them so you can see a hint of cleavage.

Statement Jumpsuit

If you only pack for one night, make sure it’s a silk or linen halter neck jumpsuit. Why? Even an upscale restaurant won’t say no to a trendy jumpsuit worn with strappy heels and diamond jewelry. Looking for glamorous inspiration? Grab a glossy magazine and see how the rich and famous do beach beauty. Looking to treat yourself to some right-hand bling before vacation?

Jumpsuits are also a fantastic way to show off your sun-kissed skin and the perfect alternative instead of wearing a top, skirt or trousers. This lilac jumpsuit is a stunning option and will look amazing with deep cork wedges.

White Button Down

Looking to hit the beach bar? A white button down will not only give you coverage but it’s still fashion-forward and classic. Make sure you pick one that comes past your thighs and not too flimsy for a chic dinner.
