Q: After spending a day at the beach, how do I dress up my beach cover-up for a casual dinner? —Carmen

Cotton “Lulu Celaya” tunic, $98, calypsostbarth.com. Bangles, $20 for set of six, baublebar.com. Leather “Bettina” sandals, $125, Rebecca Minkoff, shopbop.com.

A: Dear Carmen, 

The summer cover-up of choice for the 
Lucky fashion department is the caftan/tunic in a relatively filmy, perhaps Indian-print fabric. It is adorable during the day over a bathing suit and is very easily dressed up, says executive fashion director Alexis Bryan Morgan: “What I love about beach to evening is the beachy hair!” she says. “You have the hair and your skin is kind of glowy and all you need to step it up is a little extra: some gold bangles, maybe some small gold hoops and some flat or low-heeled sandals with a bit of gold in them too. If you like your legs bare, it looks gorgeous, and if you don’t, add some white jeans and you’re done.”
