A tried and true classic is the little black dress, beach version. This universally flattering dress is the perfect little cover up for that swim suit. Just be forewarned that black can look rather stand out at the beach. If you are heavy or tall, you want to make sure that your black beach coverup is not too overwhelming. Too much black can look like beached whale.
Classic little black beach cover up dress
This little black cover up is available in one incantation or another widely on the various swimsuit stores online. This cover up is very popular and you will find various versions of the same basic style on sites such as Victoria’s Secret and Newport News. In fact this particular one I noticed being resold inexpensively on Ali Express and Amazon.
What is nice about this is that the plunge front breaks up the monotony of the all black. Additionally, the little empire waist gives a lift to women who are heavy in the belly, hips, thighs and legs. The loose cap style sleeves also covers a bigger or flabby upper arm area, which is always nice. The loose cotton skirt covers a plethora of figure flaws and this slips on easily for that walk of shame to the snack counter, restaurant or bar area.
Pair this with movie star shades and simple dainty black flip-flops or beach sandals. It’s the beach version of the little black dress, and a universally figure flattering look that always stays in style.
