Making Dallas Even Better

Cover Clothing’s SPF Apparel Blocks the Sun and Looks Chic

Well, apparently it’s national Grilled Cheese Day, so we should all give up, grab a sammie, and go home for the day. But first, stop at Neiman Marcus and check out this line of SPF clothing. Here’s why: spring has sprung, the sun is shining (albeit not today), and melanoma is on the rise. According to the most recent skin care study from The Mayo Clinic, from 1970 to 2009, the incidence of melanoma in young women has increased eight times. Eight. Times. Don’t go patting yourself on the back for slapping on a daily dose of moisturizer with SPF either; your body is still unprotected. That’s why Dallas gals Lisa Moore and Robyn Stevens, founders of Cover Sun Conscious Clothing, created a line of quick-dry, wrinkle free, apparel with UPF 50+ protection. (We told you we loved them in 2009, remember?) Well, they’ve just been picked up by Neiman Marcus so they’re more accessible than ever. Plus, starting in May, $10 from each purchase of the long sleeve white tee will benefit the American Cancer Society. Every women needs a clean, long sleeve white tee–just ask Diane Keaton–and you’ll find it at Neiman Marcus, Five & Ten, and online.
