ITEM OF THE DAY: ANDREA IYAMAH LENA BEACH COVER UP

In Item of the Day, What's New by Christine Galasso

In a perfect world, on any given day, we’re casually walking on the white beaches of a faraway island, jewelry stacked on our wrists with our caftans blowing behind us. The Lena Beach Cover Up from Andrea Iyamah gets us closer to this 70’s-inspired dreamscape.

Its silk fabrication makes it perfectly breezy, while its printed hem is fiery and inspired by African cultures. Worn over one of the line’s eccentric, printed bathing suits and our boho vision gets bumped up to a whole new sartorial level.
