How to wear a beach cover up ? A beach cover up can effortlessly transition into a stunning dress for a beachside dinner or a chic pool side  happy hour drinks as the cool floaty fabrics of Lindsey Brown resort wear are so light to wear in hot sunshine but also flatter the body as the silk and silk crepe fabrics drapes beautifully. Our beach cover ups are designed to be effortlessly stylish, often decorated with crystals around the neckline that softly shine in the sun. 

Daytime, a beach coverups is designed to be your daytime outfit instead of getting dresses in a t-shirt shorts or a vest top and shorts you ca wear a floaty beach cover up over your swimwear all day long. Our beach cover ups are  stylish and so comfortable to wear. The choice of fabric we use at Lindsey Brown resort wear creates this beautiful flow.  Choose one or two designer  silk coverups to match with your swimwear, or even just in your favourite colours and you will correctly dressed whether its for a day by the pool, a day at a beach club, boat trips or simply wandering from your hotel room to the beach, wear a floaty kaftan dress or cover up. 

Beach cover ups don't have to be over sized and generally we think that loose clothing will only enlarge our frame. Our loose styles are very flattering on all dress sizes as the fluid fabric hangs beautifully, it accentuates curves in the right places, the key is choosing our designs as Lindsey hand picks every fabric we use in our resort wear collection. 

One tip we have when wearing white cover ups of light weight silk floaty coverups is to apply your sun cream inside, not in bright sunshine as this allows the sunscreen to be absorbed onto your skin. This also means that the sunscreen wont be absorbed onto your lovely beach cover up.

What length is a beach cover up ? We have several kaftan and beach coverup lengths to suit all body shapes, as at Lindsey Brown resort wear we truly try to create shapes for different heights and body sizes. For ladies who are petite in height ladies to try our rounded hemlines, which don't look over sized on a smaller frame. The shape is very stylish and can be worn also with shorts for lunch and wandering around a resort or to your hotel room.

If you are average height, then a knee length designer beach cover up would be the most suitable style. Again knee length depends on your height and as a rule most fashion styles and beachwear designer cover ups use a height of 165cm 5ft5 height as a guide, where as many  ladies the average height is 5ft3 160cm so a knee length style may vary. A quick way to see if the length would suit you is to measure form shoulder to knee. Of course, if you have a curvier frame or larger hips and tummy then the one size knee length size would appear a little shorter on you. Another great tip we suggest when buying your beach cover up is try sitting down. Our beach coverups are very flattering and if you size up you will still look amazing. When trying on your beachwear cover up at home, please consider that it should be loose on the tummy area. Try sitting down and ensure the seat area is not pulling across the hips as this could weaken the seams of any designer beachwear and swimwear cover up. 

Can you wear a beach cover up as a dress? Maxi length beach coverups are a great alternative to a dress as this floaty lose style is not only so chic you can waft around a resort feeling straight out of a Miami pool side film set but you can style this as a dress.  At night team with skin tone underwear or simply pop on over your swimwear for sundowner cocktails.
