How To Wear Beach Cover Ups When You Are Not On A Beach (Anymore)
So how can we make more use of a beach cover up? In fact, a nice cover up is the perfect base for your pre-beach brunch and post-beach cocktail outfit (which can also be worn in a city). The key is to buy a cover up in a light and breezy fabric, a neutral color and with no large prints on it. Believe me, anything else will become a huge styling challenge!
Then, you have different options: Going casual with flat sandals and a panama hat always works. Make sure to glam up with some statement jewelry (you are a city girl at last!).For a more refined look, throw on a colorful cardigan (from your color palette) and put some wedges on. And lastly, if you want to go really chic, create an instant polished appeal by wearing a blazer and classic heels, ideally tone in tone with your cover up.
Please note that the ideal length of the cardigan and the blazer depends on the length of your cover up underneath. The shorter the cover up, the longer the “outerwear”. Vice versa, if you opted for a cover up maxi dress, then it would be better to pair with a shorter cardigan or blazer.
I hope that you are all enjoying this sunny August. Well, if you ask me, there is no way to let a summer season pass by without swimming in the ocean or a lake. Lucky enough, I have a big beautiful lake in front my door in Zurich (ok, not literally in front of my door). I love to lie there and watch the people go by. You have to know that if there is one thing you can do extremely well by the Zurich lake, then it is to WATCH PEOPLE (I’m such a stalker, haha)!
Last time, I noticed that a lot of ladies actually wear pretty beach cover-ups when they go to get something from the kiosk. These beach cover ups are all about looking chic by the water, and they come in all varieties (dresses, tunics, rompers etc), colors and fabrics.
If you happen to live in a city by a lake or in a seaside town you’ll know that it can be really crucial sometimes to switch from a beach to a presentable look quickly. And even if you live more inlands, I’m sure you own some sort of beach cover up that lies in your closet waiting to be re-used and you’ll keep saying to yourself “I’ll wear this on my next vacation” (and then decide to pack something else instead).
