The summer cover up is a popular collection of styles that serve an essential purpose. Cover ups do just that. They are relaxed fit or loose-fitting, airy, and flowing garments that cover the body. Many people wear them to cover a bathing suit when they are on the beach, the boardwalk, or functioning away from the pool.
When you’re not in the water, you may choose not to sun-bathe, in which case, you may prefer not to be so exposed. That’s where a cover-up comes in handy. It gives you the confidence to go for a stroll along the boardwalk, to go for a shell gathering walk along the beach, or to grab a hotdog and drink at the nearby food stands.
The cover-up looks like an A-line dress in semi-transparent fabric usually in an exotic print. It may take the form of a poncho-shaped tunic that falls anywhere below the upper thigh. A cover up is versatile and can range in appearance. The only requirement is that it functions as a cover for the body.
