Every once in a while, we receive a note asking us to help find a specific product. This time, it came from our friend, Z.: “I am going to be forced into some beaching scenarios next month, and I’m in no shape to be wearing just abathing suit in front of people. Any recommendations for simple cover-ups? I was thinking of just bringing along a sarong but any other ideas would be much welcomed. They have to be super light-weight since I’m going to one of the hottest parts of the world.”
Well, Z., there were so many options that we broke our finds up in two sections– “cover ups” and sarongs/pareos. We stayed away from (more substantial) sundresses and such that are often used as cover ups, keeping our options as easy, breezy and lightweight as possible. Here are our top cover up picks:
