Beach cover-ups you won’t want to leave behind

As much as skimping around in a string bikini all summer sounds fun, fact is, it’s highly impractical – sure, for slumbering on the sand it’s fine, but what about those looming trips to grab Bacardi Daiquiris from the bar?

We’re not suggesting kitting up on every cocktail run, but slipping into something that covers the parts you wouldn’t want your parents to see might not be such a bad idea.

The solution? A quick ‘n’ cool cover-up – light-weight enough to slip on in seconds and chic enough to keep your style sweet.

Whether you’re covering up burnt bits, hiding your hips on your way to the watering hole or just looking for an evening alternative on your holiday, here’s our pick of the best beach cover-ups you won’t want to leave behind this summer.
