This week: I already have a swimsuit picked out for summer but I now need some cute cover-ups. I love bright colors and prints, but I need something that is relatively budget-friendly as ideally I would like to buy two cover-ups. Please help! – Jennifer
Hi Jennifer. Shopping for cover-ups is particularly fun as there are no limits when it comes to color. So, let’s get started. One brand that is known for creating cute beachwear is Joie. Their cover-ups range in price, but two budget-friendly options include the Collie Mayan-Print V-Neck Cover-Up ($98) and the Collie Leaf-Print V-Neck Cover-Up ($98). Victoria’s Secret’s Sexy Sundress ($50) is also worth checking out—not only does it come in a range of prints, but it can double as a dress for night. Finally, if you like a sarong-style cover-up, we like Roberta Roller Rabbit’s Pareo Sarong ($55)—it is perfect for a stroll along the beach or lounging by the pool. Good luck!
