Summer is here, and it’s time to hang loose, enjoy the breeze and bask in the sun. During this time of the year, I always have to come up with drop dead gorgeous ways to cover up.
Robes as Sun Sensible Cover
As if on cue, the robe influenced trend is back this summer, and I absolutely love it! I am so excited that I get to add robes to my outfits this summer, ranging from laid back beach cover to lunch in town (over slip dress) to the evening out with friends.
It’s just so easy to do and appeals to my sun sensible ways. Robes manage to bring the comfort of the home to the outside world while protecting you from the sun. Fortunately, robes are easily available from many retailers.
One of my favorite robes is this one from Zara. On this day, I wore it over my single piece swimsuit. This silk robe is lightweight, cool and comfortable, offering perfect sun protection.
This robe has a green background with a print of beige, green and red flowers. This print reminds me of all things summer. The color and print of this kimono style robe go well with the color of my swimsuit giving the illusion that they were bought as a set.
This printed kimono features a lapel collar and long sleeves. It also comes with front patch pockets, a contrast belt, and contrast piping. I, however, chose not to wear the belt, leaving the robe to flap in the wind. This kept me cool and exuded a laid-back chic feel.
Keeping with this feel, I let my hair down and accessorized with sunglasses to complete the look. If you are as excited about the summer as much as I am, get yourself a robe and enjoy the sun, without forgetting your sunscreen of course.
