Summer 2012 Trend: Patterned Cover-Ups That Will Turn Heads

June 8, 2012 • Fashion, Fashion Blog, Trends

Now that I have made peace with the fact I am destined to wearing one-piece bathing suits for the rest of my natural life, I realized an adult wears something other than shorts and a t-shirt to cover up at the pool and beach. Now I must accept it’s time to start looking for a cover-up. So I want it to look ‘adult’, but not old-ladyish. No Mrs. Ropper kaftans, yet I do want some patterns so I have to walk a fine line. I love the long and short kaftan cover-ups I am seeing everywhere. Which one or ones to buy? Here are 10 cover-ups I am loving right now:

1. Diane von Furstenberg Iniko Beach Cover Up Dress, $395

2. Classic Kurta w/ Border by Roberta Roller Rabbit, $69.99

3. Freya Marimba Cape Kaftan, $62.62

4. Theodora & Callum Scarf Cover Up, $295

5. Joie Collie Medallion Print V Neck Cover Up, $98

6. Trina Turk ‘Ogee’ Sheer Caftan Cover-Up, $178
