Cute Cover-Ups

posted on: June 2, 2015

I can’t believe it is already June! Whether it’s a trip to the beach or hanging around the backyard a cute cover-up is a must. Even if you re-apply sunscreens frequently they only provide so much protection. Throwing on a cute cover up is an easy way to get that extra sun protection your skin needs.

Here are my picks for cover-ups that in addition to Sunscreen, can help block UV rays.

Cute Sun Safe Cover-ups

1. California Dreamin’ Poncho by SPF Addict

I love the versatility of this poncho-it can be worn over your swimsuit, but I would also throw it on after yoga/barre class. Looks soft! has UPF 50+

2. Sungoddess Long Sleeve Rashguard by Swim Zip

My daughter has an adorable swim zip suit already, so it’s time I get one! I like the sporty look to this rash guard, and it has thumb holes which will ensure that the top on my hands and wrists are protected with the 50+ UPF fabric.

3. Tie Die Sleeveless Rash Guard by J.Crew

Beyond the awesome tie-dye print, I chose this as one of my picks because the cut of this top is great for women who want extra coverage for the décolletage (or help keeping your chi-chi’s strapped in) I would wear this on my morning walk too! Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective UV protectant.

4. ZnO Poolside Cover-Up Hoodie by Coolibar

This cover-up comes in 7 colors! The pockets could easily fit my cell phone and the hood is cute. This cover-up also has 50+ UPF in the bamboo/spandex blend

5. Bella Top by Sundriven

What caught my eye about this top is the surprise twist on the back! The right amount of flirt. Then I read that Sundriven is a brand endorsed by The Skin Cancer Foundation, and is handmade with UV protection fabric in Los Angeles! Local!

6. Gold Rio Flowing Cover Top  by Cabana Life

Loose and breezy, embellished with gold trim, I love this tunic. I would even throw some wedges on with this for dinner al fresco

7. NYC Bond Girl by Glamourpuss

Another sporty choice in Lycra, the colors are so bright, why holdback the boldness-it is summertime! I like how you can cinch the length-wearing it as a top, or loosening the strings as a dress. Versatile!

8. Razorback long dress by Cover

Crew neck cut and razorback showcases the shoulders and also covers the décolletage. Love the wavy print and length. Certified UPF 50+

9. Hooded Cover-Up by MOTT

Super cute striped cover up that you can transition to dinner or drinks. Or throw over jeans, leggings too…

10. Joan Ribbed Cardigan by MOTT

This can be worn multiple ways-the length of the cardigan allows it to be tied in front, or wrapped and tied behind you, or left open…what makes this different than any other cardigan is the UPF 50+ protection AND the thumb holes, so the tops of your hands are covered (where most people forget to realize can get wrinkled/sunspotty)
