If you’re the type of girl who eschews rubber flip flops for a leather lace-up sandal for a day at the beach, we bet you have a penchant for chic beach coverups, too. You know that those sheer, gauzy numbers simply won’t cut it on a sceney beach out East or even on Fire Island. They’re barely acceptable to wear to your neighbor’s pool party. Plus, they’re certainly not discreet enough to wear to grab a bite, post swim.
Whether you’re headed to Duryea’s for a lobster roll or just the local bar for a glass for rosé, a proper outfit is in order. Which is why this summer, it’s time to step up your coverup game.
Reformation did a linen dress with a button-up detail and string ties, which are perfect for showing off the day’s tan. Chloé has a bit of a fancier version, which is apt for your upcoming jaunt to Ibiza. But LoveShackFancy has created the most perfect one of all, in form of a white short-sleeved maxi dress. This style has just the right amount of crochet to be cool, but is fitted enough to avoid being frumpy.
With the upcoming holiday, we’re not saying that you have to wear red, white and/or blue, but you might as well consider these festive options while you’re at it. After all, Fourth of July is the unofficial beach holiday.
