If you want to go on a holiday, the best place to go to would be the beach. The sun, the sand, the lazy afternoons is all so enticing. All you have to do is lie down in the beach, get a beautiful tan and go back after sunset. The beach is also the best place to showoff your body.
If you’ve been on a great workout regime and want to show off your abs, there can be no better place to do it. Not everyone is comfortable getting out of the water and into the restaurant or the sidewalk in just a bikini or a one-piece swimsuit.
This is when a cover up comes handy. It is good enough to cover up just as much as you want. There is great cover up options available and if you don’t want to spend a lot of money in just buying a cover up you can use something from your closet.
Unique Cover up Ideas for the Beach
Some great cover up ideas for the beach you can get out of your closet are:
Sarongs or Wraps
Sarongs or wraps work amazingly well as cover-ups for the beach. They are usually made of soft see-through fabrics like chiffon and they come in solid and bold colors with beautiful prints. You could just wrap it around your waist and you’ll be all set to have lunch at a restaurant close by. If the wrap is long enough, you could wrap it from the top and it would look like a tube dress.
Tunics are a great cover up idea for the beach. They are usually made of sheer material and fall till mid-thigh length. You can choose one with short or three-forth sleeves. Tunics come in great colors and prints. You could look for one in your closet that is closest to the color of your bikini and you will look very stylish at the beach.
Everyone has cotton summer dresses in their closet. These dresses are great for using as cover ups. They can be worn with spaghetti straps but if you want to avoid tan lines, go for the ones that are strapless. Try to wear dresses that are not too long because you don’t want the sand in them all the time. They are very light and even if they absorb some water from your swimwear, it would dry really fast under the sun.
Tank Tops and Skirts
Tank tops and skirts work very well as cover-ups. Look for a light cotton skirt in a pastel shade with a summery print. It can be in any length, but try not to wear something too long. If you have great abs, wearing just your skirt with your bikini top would do but if you want more of a cover up, you could throw on a tank top as well. The beach is the best place to holiday and it is important to look and feel great there. Wear what you are comfortable in and show off the rest.
