Beach-y Keen

This affordable cover-up can take you from the sandy beach to pina coladas with the ladies in no time. We love the cute and unexpected hood on this Hooded Jersey Cover-Up ($24.50 at Old Navy).

Uptown Sleek: "Pile on the jewlery, loads and loads of jewelry," says Cyprow. She suggests choosing a color, like silver, gold, or something bright like blue or red, and adding tons of bangles, a long necklace or some big sparkly earrings. "You can also put on a sexy bright bra underneath and let a little bit of the color peek out," she says. For the white cover-up, play up the blue in the drawstring with your accessories, Cyprow suggests.

What you'll need:
• Bangles
• Long necklace
• Sparkly earrings
• Sexy, bright-colored bra

Downtown Chic: Haver offers an alternative for the white cover-up. "I would take a very rugged chunky brown leather belt and I would cover the [drawstring] and the gathering so it looks more crunched in, pair it with some skinny black jeans and pick up the rugged brown in a platform wedge shoe," she says. And if you want, you can add some bracelets in an antique silver or brass, Haver adds.

What you'll need:
• Brown leather belt
• Antique silver or brass bracelets
• Skinny black jeans
