Slay the shore in style with these 10 sleek (and inexpensive!) swimsuit cover-ups. (Amazon)

Choosing a beach cover-up is kind of an art. The right one can be the unsung hero of summer — it’s in all your photos, it defines your seaside or poolside style, it can transition into a casual dinner dress or a lovely layer over your lunch outfit and, most importantly, it can help give you the confidence to strut about in your swimsuit without feeling half naked (which you are).

An ideal wardrobe workhorse for a few reasons. It has that perfect, bum-covering length — it's a bit longer in the back, which creates an attractive asymmetry. It also has three-quarter sleeves that give you a nice amount of sun protection but keep you from feeling too buttoned up. And it's made of a gauzy rayon that filters the sun while staying breathable, so you can feel as cool as you look.

There's more than the low price to love about this. For starters, it's made of chiffon for a dressy-casual look that can take you from the beach to the farmer's market.
