What To Wear To: Cover Up At The Beach

June 5, 2008 by Bryn
shefinds |

As the weather warms up and we look forward to heading to the beach each weekend (or at least fantasize about it), some anxiety might set in when you think about bearing your bod. I, for one, don't have a perfect ten body and don't feel comfortable running carefree through the sand wearing nothing but my bikini and a smile. However, this doesn't mean I have to sport a moo moo or an extra-large t-shirt in order to cover up on the beach. Thanks to the return of ethnic trends this season, tunics, caftans, and the like offer a fresh alternative to the go-to floor-length sarong or other tired options. 

When heading out for some beach time, start with a classic yet sexy two-piece with some unexpected beaded detail. Then cover up your anxiety with a bold, embellished tunic – just make sure it's not too long. A shorter, flirty length will still hide problem areas but will let you show off tanned legs. Lounging by the water doesn't mean you can't accessorize. Add a statement bracelet to your ensemble, but make sure to take it off when sitting in the sun so you don't get any unflattering tan lines. Finally, slip on some gemstone sandals and grab a roomy straw tote. You'll look chic and casual, and feel perfectly comfortable relaxing the hours away. 

And for other flattering swimsuit options, check out our Guide to Swimsuits for your Shape.
