In spite of our ridiculous 50 degree weather today, let us imagine a day in the not too distant future when we will all be wearing swimsuits by the pool, soaking up the sun. For that reason alone, you should know about Cover Clothing. Founder Lisa Moore launched the Dallas-based company in 2008, after her 23-year-old sister was diagnosed with a melanoma on her arm. Dedicated to offering fashionable cover-ups that do just that—each piece is crafted from an extremely lightweight nylon/spandex blend that is certified UPF 50—the label took off and is resonating increasingly throughout the fashion world. Look no further than this month's Vogue for a write-up; and make sure to take a look at the brand's lookbook too.
