Athleta Kali Kurta Cover-UpAthleta takes its cues from the east with this conservative Kali Kurta.

People in Afghanistan, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, and other eastern nations have been wearing kurtas for centuries. The loose-fitting tops are comfortable and conservative, which makes them perfect for beach cover-ups.

There's a hint of hippie chic about this cover-up, although I wouldn't call it fashion forward. It's a shame Athleta didn't embellish this kurta with embroidery as the original artisans would have. The black fabric might be timeless, but it's also pretty dull. Not even the white accents or the smocking at the back and bust can make this cover-up exciting.

Its greatest strength is its crinkled cotton material, which is lightweight to wear and breathable too. The fabric has a naturally wrinkled appearance, so you needn't waste your time ironing it. Taking care of it is easy too; just pop it in the washing machine, followed by the dryer, and you're done.

While it's not very stylish, $29.99 is pretty cheap for any beach cover-up, especially when it offers as much protection as this one. You'll see even more value if you follow modern girls from the East and pair this kurta with jeans during winter.
