Summer Fashion: The Beach Cover-up


Almost as important as the swimsuit (and generally eminently more wearable) is the cover-up. We love them because they make the long walk from the beach chair to the bathhouse soooooooo much less cringe-inducing. A tip? Try on your cover-up to make sure it’s long enough, roomy enough, and cut right so that you are comfortable in it — cool colors and fluid shapes make for the most chic beach/pool cover-ups this season, and getting them for less is tres easy. That’s French for no-brainer.
