'Classy but casual': Wear this cover-up to the beach and beyond — it's down to $20

We love nothing more than a piece that pulls double duty — like a tunic-top beach cover-up that provides coverage and comfort over our go-to swimwear. Even better, though? A top that also can add a little extra zhuzh to any comfy-chic summer outfit. With the Yincro Swimsuit Cover-Up Shirt, you get all that — and since it's on sale for just $20 at Amazon (down from $27), you can even stock up on a few to add some multitasking style to your summer wardrobe!

It's a flowy frock, it's a post-swim sheath, it's a button-up shirt. Your next essential summer-wardrobe purchase is what it is.

Many reviewers have raved about this cover-up's talents, as both a top to wear over a swimsuit or tossed on over a pair of cute capris or jeans for out and about. So for a 2-in-1 outfit, $20 (30% off!) is a pretty sweet deal. We've never seen a lower price for this, so if you're seeking out a versatile top for summer, we suggest snapping this one up now while it's on sale.

There's so much to love about the Yincro Swimsuit Cover-Up Shirt. It's made of a light and airy chiffon fabric, which is slightly sheer to allow for some breathability but still provides some protection from the elements. It comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns, including classic black, summery shades like sky blue and magenta, and pretty prints like florals and stripes, so you'll easily be able to find one that fits your vibe and matches your fave swimsuit. Plus, it has adorable tassels along the hem, which adds a little extra oomph to an otherwise low-key style.

The shape of the cover-up is also pretty special. It's designed in an oversized button-up shirt style, with rollable 3/4 sleeves and a loose, flowy construction that feels great over swimwear and provides coverage over the tush area. Thanks to that mix of playful and practical, several shoppers have shared that they've ended up wearing it as a top with summery bottoms to head out and about on sunny days that don't even necessarily include a stop at the beach. We love that!

Amazon shoppers simply adore this piece, awarding it a fab 4.4 out of 5-star average rating.

"Love it! It’s shorter in the front, longer in the back. Looks classy but casual," raved one reviewer.

Another five-star fan said it's the perfect cover-up for summer getaways. "I took this on a recent cruise and it was my favorite cover-up. It is long enough to wear into the breakfast or lunch buffet. I also liked that it has a shirt collar-type neckline, so the day I had some sunburn, I felt like it provided a little more coverage. ... I received a number of compliments on it."

A similarly stylish wearer agreed: "Bought this for a trip to Mexico, and the colors and vibe were perfect. I got a ton of compliments on this piece."

"I liked it so much that I ordered another one," enthused an Amazon shopper. "It's light and airy! Beautiful fit ... perfect swimsuit cover-up for the lake or beach. It washed well too. I washed it in cold water and hung it up to air-dry. It kept its shape beautifully."

A few reviewers noted that the top seems to run large, so if you're looking for a more snug fit, you may want to size down. "Ordered a large, but the sizing should have been an XL," said one customer.

Contrarily, wrote another reviewer, "The fit is a little smaller than I expected, but it still fits okay." They advised that "the fabric does not have any give to it."

Your move, Goldilocks. ...

It's available in 22 colors and patterns, enough to have a different one for every week of summer and a coupla snow-bird getaways during the winter. You thinking what we're thinking?
