How to choose the best beach cover-up for you
How to choose the best beach cover-up for you
Depending on how you'll be spending your (much-needed) PTO, you'll want to choose a beach cover-up that'll serve you right. Maybe you have a jam-packed itinerary ahead of you where you'll be on the go 24/7. Or perhaps you don't anticipate leaving the beach until the sun goes down every day. Whatever your vacation game plan is, you'll need to be selective about what you wear. And the best way to do that is by keeping these things in mind...
Consider your plans
Okay, I know this doesn't sound especially novel or important, but hear me out! Let's say you have dinner reservations right after your beach day, and you know you won't have the time to get ready for it. Believe me when I say that you'll want a cover-up that can pass as a legit outfit in a situation like this. (Work smarter, not harder.) Yeah, so, I'm gonna say any see-through option has officially been nixed. Instead, go for a flowy dress or a matching set. No one will ever know it took you seconds to spruce yourself up and that you've got your bathing suit on underneath.
Pick something you won't feel clammy in
Wherever you'll be, it's gonna be hot. The last thing you want is to have a cover-up that's gonna make you all sticky and uncomfy. If you're a sweatier person like me (heh), I suggest selecting something that's got a lot of room for airflow. Wearing an extra layer of clothing sounds like it'd feel super stuffy in warm temps—but if you go for an option that's made of breathable material, then you won't have to go through that sweat fest.
