Fashion Advice- How to Find A Stylish Swimsuit Cover Up

It can be tricky to find a swim suit cover up, but it doesn't have to be with these style tips…There seems to be two schools of thought on swimsuit cover-ups: the sheer and sexy or the short-shorts and terry.So what's a chic beach babe to do when she feels that running around in a one-off negligee or a kiddy romper is just too-too to suit her style needs?Well, go crazy. No, no, that's why I'm here.I don't know about you, but unless I'm camped out poolside at a luxury resort, the idea of prancing about in a sheer beach cover-up seems rather ridiculous to me, if not a bit risqué if you drive to the beach and then, maybe, make a pit stop at the grocery store.Then, there are those kiddy romper cover-ups that I find to be totally inappropriate for most women old enough to know better.Yet, finding the perfect beach cover-up that looks gown-up, chic, and, perhaps, even covers up those not so perfect parts of your body can be a chore. We've taken the work out of the search by finding a few great cover-ups, below, but also want to help you out with some style tips too.
