Summer in the city is great. Summer weekends are even better because you get to say "peace out" to the city and head to the beach. So once the weather truly heats up, I plan on spending most of my Saturdays and Sundays in a swimsuit along the Atlantic. When it comes to what to wear over a swimsuit, I usually go for whatever is soft, loose and comfortable in my closet. The past few years, I've turned to a certain sleeveless jersey dress in dark gray, but after so many washes and rounds in the dryer, it's not exactly fitting my cover-up criteria.

Luckily, this romper by Madewell will instantly do the trick. But in black? Sure, why not? If you're hesitant about wearing such a dark hue to a sunny spot like the beach, consider this: Do what you want. Besides, the romper's super-slouchy fit will help to keep you cool on a summer's day. And sure, this isn't the most exciting piece of clothing but that's only because this comfy one-piece will be stuffed in my beach bag as soon my feet hit the sand.
