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.
