Choosing a beach coverup is kind of an art. The right one can be the unsung hero of summer — it’s in all your photos, it defines your seaside or poolside style, it can transition into a casual dinner dress or a lovely layer over your lunch outfit and, most importantly, it can help give you the confidence to strut about in your swimsuit without feeling half naked (which you are).
Skip the pricey boutiques, though. Amazon has plenty of chic options for a fraction of the price — and because it’s Amazon, some of the most popular are also on sale. As a full-time beach dweller, I consider myself something of a coverup queen. So trust me: at least one of these 15 picks is perfect for your size, shape and budget.
