ES Goes Beachy: Covering Up the Essentials

Coverups are one of the most amazing clothing "inventions" ever created. They have allowed 99% of women (and men in some cases) to feel comfortable lounging poolside, beachside, barside (you get the point) anytime the sun is shining.  I have learned over the years that a lot of my coverups can actually be worn off the beach as well.  With high-end designers to our favorite thrifty shops designing new coverups ever year, it is difficult to go an entire summer without getting at least one.  I tend to purchase most of my coverups at stores like H&M, Topshop and Urban Outfitters (romper central!), but thats not to say I still don't pine for this beautiful Missoni V-Neck Caftan.  Whatever your budget and style, there is certainly a coverup for everyone.  Since I am all about categorizing my collages this week, see below for multiple styles of my coverup picks.  Enjoy!
