A cover up creates a put together and stylish look for summer. It also serves as a camouflage to the body once leaving the pool or beach.
  • Tunics
Tunics, with longer sleeves, cover the entire upper body  and a portion of the lower body depending on its length. They come in virtually any color with some containing embroidery or beading.
  • Caftans
Similar to tunics, caftans usually are maxi length and are short sleeved or ¾ length.  They tend to be bright and bold and are a little dressier to go right to dining al fresco at a seaside bistro.
  • Button front dresses
Dresses in cotton or terry toweling fabrics that button up front are flexible as swimsuit's cover up.  Do up as many or as few buttons as desired.
  • Smocked sun dresses
These dresses just pull on over the head and are smocked and stretchy in the bodice area. 
  • Sarongs
Sarongs come in a large assortment of fabricationsn that are rectangle in shape. They can be tied in multiple ways that cover both the upper and lower body.  
  • Cabana slacks
These pants are usually made from cotton or linen and they feature a drawstring waist for easy wearing.  This look is a classic in white gauze.
  • Swimsuit matching cover up skirts
A simple solution is to purchase a matching cover up that swimsuit manufacturers offer with their collection of suits.

Add pair of matching wedged sandals, a trendy pair of sunglasses, a beach carry-all and a designer handbag to look like a goddess at the beach.

A functional designer handbag that can withstand the elements is in order. The authentic Prada Messenger Bag is crafted in smooth nylon and silver tone hardware. 

That feature alone makes the black nylon Prada bag ideal for any outing no matter the weather. It is easy to pack in luggage or beach bag and pull out as an instant stunner when on vacation. Designed along the style of a classic messenger bag, its single canvas strap is made for strength and is adjustable.

No functional Prada is ever without its insignia triangle bearing the innovative Milan designer´s house name. This time, it is right smack up front on this large shoulder bag and cannot be missed. The Prada pirate skull key chain dangles off the handle and is a perfect reminder of the sea. 

The used Prada´s interior opens via a top zip and tenders enough space to carry the essentials. The inside is crafted in signature jacquard lining with a zipper pocket compartment.

Kate Winslet and Renée Zellweger are huge fans of the authentic Prada Messenger Bag and use it often.
