If you’re looking to wow at the beach this summer an eye-catching beach cover up is the way to go. And the most stylish, not to mention functional, wraps can be found at Bloomstrings Gifts and Apparel in Cutchogue.

Since opening four years ago beach cover-ups have consistently been a bestseller at the Main Street shop, according to owner Laurel Woodhull who said they typically sell out of most of their wraps before the season starts.

Splashy colors like coral and turquoise have been instant hits this season. Gem and bead detailing has been popular too, she said.

While choosing the right beach cover up is a really a matter of personal style, if you want to get the most out of your purchase try choosing a garment that can transit easily from lying in the sun to hanging out indoors. Bloomstrings sells the aptly named Beach to Bar collection by designer Mud Pie.

“They are great beach they can be wore from the beach to beach bar and you don’t feel like you’re wearing a cover up,” Ms. Woodhull said.
