Classy Cover Ups

By  May 26, 2009


Now that we’re back from our Memorial Day Weekend jaunt, we can’t get thoughts of a seaside escape out of our minds. Sometimes half the fun of going to the beach is more than just building sandcastles and jumping in the waves,  it’s the thrill of wearing adorable clothing, of course.  Okay, who are we  kidding?  Summer fashion is always  a joy!  And we’re  not just talking about looking adorable in that itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny yellow polka-dot bikini you rock while reading chic lit in your beach chair.  I’m talking about what you wear while strutting your stuff on the boardwalk/seaside runway to get a refreshing ice tea-lemonade.  Whether it’s jean shorts (not all the way buttoned of course) with a little tank top, or a flowy beach dress, we just love cover-ups this season!  Here are a couple of our faves from Everything But ~Arielle Sobov

1. Had to throw in a maxi dress, of course!  Look totally stylish this summer in this Vix Optical dress, which retails for $159.99.  Throw on a pair of strappy flats, and you’re ready!

2. Shoulders back, chin up in this $90 Becca Bungalow tunic dress.  This super boho-chic cover up would look great with loose beach waves and aviator sunglasses!

3. Ruffles are showing up on beachwear everywhere.  If you’re not into the idea of a ruffle bathing suit, try this Profile by Gottex mini skirt cover up.  The $78 investment will be worth it when you find yourself wearing this every weekend.

4. We’re tickled pink by this Juicy Couture Classic Gauze dress, which retails for $124.  Chanel your inner celeb and rock this with a super trendy fedora!
