Q. I have the perfect chic black one-piece swimsuit for the beach, but I'm still searching for a cover-up to go with it. I wear plus sizes and would appreciate any fashionable suggestions.
A. Sundresses, tunics, and sarongs are top choices for keeping dry, warm, and stylish after a dip in the water. Sundresses of any length would work as long as it's easy to pull on and off over your swimsuit. Terry tube dresses are popular, and they're super-easy to roll up and slip into a beach bag.
Tunics, the loose-fitting, ultra-lightweight tops that hit at mid-thigh level, are super-hot right now, because they're one of the fashion essentials to pulling off the boho or ethnic look--perfect with big sunglasses and a bangle or two.
Sarongs tie around the hips and come in every color and print imaginable. Go wild with an animal print or keep it chic with a color that matches your swimsuit.
