Last weeks blog was all about swimsuits and bikinis, this week it’s about what to wear for a beachy lunch, or poolside brunch and feel cool, chic and above all, comfortable.it’s great to have something easy to throw on that instantly dresses up your swimwear, whether you are grabbing a quick bite at the nearest beach cafe, or hanging out at the poolside bar.
Here are seven of my fave coverups and of course, the perfect shades to wear them with, for maximum beach chic impact.
This “Julia” dress from Blue Boheme ($209.00) is in cool cotton with colourful embroidered florals, perfect to throw on. Team with these fabulous “Raffine Panthere” sunglasses from Le Specs ($129.00), with gold panther details on the arms. A cool, chic casual look that will take you from beach to bar in no time.
