Cover-Ups that Don't Cover Up 

Women don the conventional cover-ups for several reasons. For some, it's the convenience of having something to throw on quickly. Others rely on cover-ups to hide the flaws you don't want to flaunt. Here's the skinny on cover-ups – don't miss the whole point of a cover-up by wearing one that doesn't actually cover anything up. 

Lacy, holey and completely see-through cover-ups essentially defeat the purpose. We're not suggesting you don a huge, ugly t-shirt as a cover-up, either. There are plenty of cute, fashionable cover-ups on the market that are perfect for the beach and the street. 

For tasteful, stylish cover-ups, consider these attractive options: 

  • lightweight satin ombré pants;
  • an off-the-shoulder, short cotton dress;
  • a long, flowing, draping, lightweight dress;
  • a strapless romper;
  • a graphic t-shirt dress;
  • a smock-topped short dress; or
  • a layered mini-dress.
