Cheap Thrill: A Webbed Beach Coverup That Won't Put You In The Deep End

Beachside cover-ups are an oft-overlooked thing, and face it—that sarong you bought on the boardwalk in Miami just doesn't do your cute swimsuit any justice. In our dreams, we'd wear Mark Fast's cobwebbed, knit creations pre- and post-swim, but donning a $2,000 dress over a sopping swimsuit makes us feel panicky. We'll settle for Nastygal's fringed version that's 3% of the Fast's price. Granted, it's not going to have the meticulous hand construction or is made with high-quality knits, but for tossing over a swimsuit for a daytrip to the beach, it'll do just fine.
