10 Flattering Cover-Ups For The Beach (& Beyond!)

We’re all about celebrating your bod — whether you’re comfortable sporting a barely-there bikini or not. But sometimes, the difference between enjoying a sun-filled beach day and staying inside for all of eternity (or at least until summer passes) could be a piece a fabric — literally.
Even if you’re down to bare your figure in a two-piece (atta, girl!), a flattering cover-up is just as essential as your lounge chair and SPF. Look no further: We’ve found 10 so-cute picks — everything from flowy caftans to pareos and traditional sarongs — that are perfect for lounging beachside or enjoying margaritas in the cabana. The best news? Some of these picks can double as scarves once you’re off the beach, too.
