We sometimes forget that the sun in just as strong OFF the beach as it is ON the beach. As you saw in our video, whether you're grabbing lunch, cocktails or a stroll around town, a cute cover-up is key. Here are my faves.

Matchy Matchy

I love a matching bikini and cover-up. Some of my favorite styles are from LeTarte at figleaves.com. Their fabrics are fantastic, their safari and seahorse prints, my fave. This long sleeve tunic is great for lounging around the beach or pool in the late afternoon when the weather gets cool.

Lace Cover-Up

Shoshanna's dresses are known to be pretty, feminine, and made with great attention to detail and a fabulous fit. Why should her cover-ups be any different? I love this sheer lace scoop neck style in navy at shopbop.com. It look great over a swimsuit, but could also work for a night out with a slip underneath instead.

Do: Wear Cardigans

Ths white halter neck cover-up is not only stylish but functional. It's made from terry cloth which is a very absorbant fabric. So instead of grabbing a big, bulky towel, toss on this cover-up from Ralph Lauren.
