If you are planning a visit to Savannah, don’t forget to pack your swimsuit for a jaunt to Tybee Island. One of the lesser-known gems of the Atlantic beaches, this tiny barrier island just 18 miles from Savannah boasts a three mile stretch of wide, flat, pristine white sand. Since 1773, the Tybee Island Lighthouse, painted in an eye-popping graphic stripe, has been standing guard over the island.
The lighthouse inspired this body-skimming tunic, great to wear over a pair of white capris, shorts or your bathing suit. The swing-away design and color-blocking are a nod to the lighthouse’s shape and stripes. Its mid-thigh length and soft drape will flatter a wide range of body shapes and sizes. Wear it over a tank for a layered look, or wear it alone to show your tan to its best advantage. Either way, you may need some guarding of your own!
