Misses Beach Wear — 5 Affordable, Must-Have Pieces

4. The Swimdress

Dress up your beach look with this ruffled number that offers extra tummy support and a built-in bra. This is a unique look that anyone can pull off to show some leg. If you like this look but need more coverage, wear a black sarong to cover the legs when you’re out of the water.

5. The Caftan

This $28 caftan includes almost every color in the rainbow, with an emphasis on black, white and pink. Wear this piece to the beach (you can get a matching suit at Macy’s), or not. It’s less sheer than most cover-ups — which means it’ll double as a top.
