Are you looking for a chic cover-up for your beach trip? Despite the fabulous bikini weather on the beach, you may want to slip on something that provides a little more coverage when walking the boardwalk or grabbing a bite to eat. These cover-ups are pretty and affordable—the perfect combination for a budget-savvy beach bum.
Croft & Barrow Crinkle Tank Cover-Up
You can find a great deal on cover-ups at Kohls. This one is available in black, white, turquoise, navy and fab fuchsia for only $20.40. Buy it before 5/21/14, and you’ll get an additional 15-30 percent off. The neckline and straps look great on most body types, and this particular style washes easily. Consider trying it on first or ordering a size smaller than normal, as some reviews report that it runs large.
Women’s Plus Striped Swim Cover-Ups
Plus-size women can find fabulous cover-ups at Old Navy for $19.97. The cover-up is available in red stripe and navy stripe and features long sleeves with a button front. Several ratings report that it’s too small, so order one or two sizes up to ensure a proper fit. Pair this cover-up with a big straw hat, and you’re set to stroll along the sandy beaches in style.
Hula Honey Strapless Bandeau Cover-Up
For those who need a strapless-style cover-up, try this little gem from Macy’s. It’s currently priced at $21.99, but even at regular price is only $28. This style comes in black, blue violet, raspberry and white. It’s fun, flirty and designed with an empire waist to be flattering to most figures.
Porto Cruz Popcorn-Texture Striped Cover-Up Dress
At J.C. Penney, you’ll find this sleek and sexy cover-up for $22.80. It’s only available in black, so you may want to save this one for poolside rather than on the white-hot sandy beaches. This cover-up is a little more delicate than the others, so it should be washed by hand.
Floral Swim Cover-Up
For a more dress-like cover-up, you can’t beat the Forever 21 floral design. It’s a semi-sheer dress style that comes to just above the knees. Priced at $15.80, the bold, flirty floral design will add a feminine flair to your beach wardrobe.
