Memorial Day weekend is the perfect excuse for a trip to the beach. And while we're craving the chance to sip a cool margarita and wiggle our toes in the sand, we're most excited to embrace the warm-weather style. We've already picked out the perfect swimsuit , and now it's time to focus on what to wear over it.
To us, the best beach coverups pull double duty: they look just as good in the sand as they will wherever we're headed once the sun sets. From flowy maxi dresses to flirty rompers, these pieces are as easy as one and done, no quick changes necessary. That way, we can focus on what's really important, the celebration!
