Looking to channel your inner hippie? Search no more! This unique asymmetrical dress sold by Bangkok Pants is a part of Amazon’s climate pledge friendly program. This tunic is functionable and comfortable for the beach, but also for activities such as yoga, zumba, dance and everyday wear. Featuring colorful fabrics made in Thailand, this coverup also comes in five other colors.

This Amazon reviewer is a fan:

“I have taken to enjoying wearing longer, loose dresses in summer and this may be my new favorite. I got the “black stripe” and it looks JUST like the photo. It drapes beautifully, and is incredibly lightweight…you hardly know you are wearing anything which will be really nice in the hot, humid dog days of summer. The material is soft and the construction is solid. As someone who is smaller up top and larger in the hips/thighs, I really appreciate a dress that gives me this much freedom while not looking like a potato sack. I’m seriously considering coming back to order at least one more color. So this is an easy 5* for me.”
