This sophisticated beach cover-up even looks great with jeans — score it on sale for $26
As a remote worker, I'm forever traveling to beach destinations. One of my best packing hacks is to bring stylish staples that do double duty. Case in point: I always keep a lightweight blouse with long-ish sleeves on hand as a chic beach coverup that transitions into a smart blouse when I hit the town. Amazon's Ekouaer Beach Cover-Up Shirt is exactly what I'm talking about, and right now it's up to 40% off in more than 63 colors, including my personal favorite: white.
Ekouaer Bathing Suit Cover-Up
By design, the Ekouaer Beach Cover-Up Shirt is the ideal wardrobe workhorse for a few reasons. It has that perfect, bum-covering length — a tiny bit longer in the back, which creates an attractive asymmetry. It also has three-quarter sleeves that give you a nice amount of protection without being overly modest. And finally, it's made of a gauze-y rayon that filters out the sun while still being breathable, so you can feel as cool as you look.
That gauze-y weight is ideal, trust me, because you're not going to get overheated or sweat right through it. I ordinarily would not be wearing a long-sleeve blouse in the summer humidity, but this top is so lightweight you'll never take it off. I wear mine everywhere. And the fact that it's just slightly see-through is fine: You'll either have your bathing suit on underneath or you can wear a thin tank top or sports bra.
And honestly, you cannot beat the price of the Ekouaer Beach Cover-Up Shirt — starting at just $26 with the on-page coupon.
Here's a look at a week in the life of my own three-quarter-sleeve gauze-y beach coverup that's identical to the Ekouaer: Over the weekend, I throw it on over my swimsuit and tuck the front into a pair of denim shorts. I take it off to swim and sunbathe but put it back on throughout the day. Come Monday, I need something effortless to throw on for errands, and I come right back to this blouse that I can walk around in all day in tropical heat without getting drenched. I tuck it into jeans or shorts, or I wear it over leggings or bike shorts. I even wear it at night, dressed up with jewelry.
Amazon shoppers are digging the versatility of the Ekouaer Beach Cover-Up Shirt too. "This is fantastic, easy summer wear. I've worn it over a bathing suit. I also wore it with leggings and sandals," wrote one of more than 17,000 five-star reviewers.
Another chimed in, "Best new piece I own! This swim cover-up is my new favorite piece of clothing!! I bought it last minute for a cruise to Mexico. I wore it the first night to dinner with jeans and wedges and tucked the front in. I got so many compliments!"
