This sophisticated beach cover-up even looks great with jeans — it's down to $25 (over 40% off)

As a remote worker, I'm forever traveling to beach destinations. One of my best packing hacks is to bring stylish staples that do double duty. Case in point: I always keep a lightweight blouse with longish sleeves on hand as a chic beach cover-up that transitions into a smart blouse when I hit the town. Amazon's Ekouaer Beach Cover-Up Shirt is exactly what I'm talking about, and right now, it's just $25, down from $46 with an on-page coupon — that's over 40% off!

This Amazon bestseller looks like what would happen if an Oxford shirt and a cover-up had a baby. The hybrid beachwear piece lets you look sophisticated on the beach and stylish when you're back on solid ground.

By design, the Ekouaer Beach Cover-Up is the ideal wardrobe workhorse for a few reasons. It has that perfect, bum-covering length — it's a bit longer in the back, which creates an attractive asymmetry. It also has three-quarter sleeves that give you a nice amount of sun protection without being overly modest. And finally, it's made of a gauzy rayon that filters out the sun while still being breathable, so you can feel as cool as you look.

The barely there weight ensures you won't get overheated and sweat right through it. Ordinarily, I would not wear a long-sleeve blouse in the summer humidity, but this top is so lightweight that I never take it off. I've found that its slightly see-through nature is fine: You'll either have your bathing suit on underneath or you can wear a thin tank top or sports bra.

And honestly, you cannot beat the price of the Ekouaer Beach Cover-Up.

Here's a look at a week in the life of my cover-up: Over the weekend, I throw it on over my swimsuit and tuck the front into a pair of denim shorts. I take it off to swim and sunbathe but put it back on throughout the day. Come Monday, I need something effortless to throw on for errands and come right back to this blouse that I can walk around in all day in tropical heat without getting drenched. I tuck it into jeans or shorts, or I wear it over leggings or bike shorts. I even wear it at night, dressed up with jewelry.

Amazon shoppers are digging the versatility of the Ekouaer Beach Cover-Up too. "This is fantastic, easy summer wear. I've worn it over a bathing suit. I also wore it with leggings and sandals," wrote one of nearly 17,000 five-star reviewers.

Another chimed in, "This swim cover-up is my new favorite piece of clothing. I bought it last minute for a cruise to Mexico. I wore it the first night to dinner with jeans and wedges and tucked the front in. I got so many compliments."

This cover-up comes in a ton of cute colors, from neutral white or black to fluorescent green and this popular hue, called Snorkel Blue. Flirty cover-ups are fun, but this one broadcasts a more grown-up style that we're very into this season.
