A beach vacation is one of those rare times when it's OK to wear little more than a swimsuit and sandals for days at a time. Of course if you want to do more than just sit on the beach — say, hit the beach bar or go shopping — you'll want to slip into something with a bit more coverage. Here are 14 beach cover-ups that will do just that while injecting extra personality into your seaside look. Get shopping!
