Cute Sun Protection You Don't Slather On

You never skip the SPF on your face and other exposed areas (right??), but if you're relying on your clothes to protect the rest of your bod, you may have a false sense of security. Harmful UV rays can penetrate skin through some fabrics. Enter UPF (that's ultraviolet protection factor) clothing and accessories that keep skin safe. Here, sun-smart styles you'll want to wear everywhere.

Wear-Anywhere Dress

Playing it safe with fashion isn't always a good thing. But in this case -- a UPF 50+ striped dress with a chic, full-coverage boat neckline -- it's a great thing.

Scalp Saver

Throw some shade in a chic sun hat. This fedora keeps your head covered with its UPF 50+ braided weave. Plus, its 3-inch brim protects your face.

Chic Cover-Up

This long-sleeve, hooded, geometric-print cover-up with UPF 50+ makes a bold statement: well-protected skin!
