Fashion Radar: Best Coverups from North Ave to South Beach

My favorite two US beaches... North Avenue in Chicago (of course only for 3 months) and South beach in the always sunny miami. As you can imagine the two cities have a lot of differences but when it comes to coverups don't forget to stay stylish. We worry alot about our swimwear so lets not forget the cover up is the outfit on top of the swimsuit that can actually compliment your beach look.
Lets start south. You will need a cover up over your tiny Brazilian style bikini as you soak up sun in south beach. After hours of amazing people watching and speedo cringing you may want to head over to wet willies for a frozen cocktail. Think effortless and boho chic for south beach. I love this sarong found on sale for under $35 on PiperLime. This Roberta Roller Rabbit sarong screams Miami.

Miami nightlife comes to the beach with this sheer tunic from one of my favorite sexy swim lines, Beach Bunny. Throw this over your suit and you are ready to walk ocean drive after sunning. Check out this cover up for $235 on Beach Bunny.

Chicago girls need their cover ups to last all day, from brunch to the beach and then maybe a street festival. I love this cotton, ruffle romper from kensie.

For $39 this dress is a great look for a beach cover up that can carry you up for food and drinks at Castaways. The floppy hat is a great addition also! Shop Chicago local boutique, Akira to find this great dress.
