Like Buttah
Instead of swiping your guy's XL Deathmatch "commemorative" tee, grab the Juicy Couture cover-up dress instead. Its V neckline and drawstring waist are kind to curves, and the soft cotton feels amazing against your skin.

Quick-dry
Bold Groove
The bold print on this Cia Maritima swim tunic will draw attention faster than the bell on the Good Humor truck. And it's made from the same quick-dry matte microfiber as your swimsuit. Translation: You won't leave any soppy imprints on your car seat.

$214, Cacique Boutique 305-957-0009

Caftan
Totally Transparent
Trust us: Everyone's gonna be walking around in an ankle-length caftan come summer. This Echo silk chiffon beach dress is so stylish you'll be tempted to wear it as a dress, but don't--it's ultra sheer. Tip: Wide horizontal stripes look best on tall, slender types.

Sweater Knit
The Thigh's the Limit
Slip on the Pacific Breeze tunic dress by Tommy Bahama and you'll look pulled together in, like, two seconds flat. It flows over curves without getting too clingy. And you can cinch it to any length you want.

$98, tommybahama.com

Tunic
Details, Please
Had one too many margaritas? Snuggle up in this tunic by Inca. Brightly colored, with a touch of ethnic, it has a practical side, too: Elastic around the wrists keep the longish sleeves out of the guacamole.
