Amazon customers' most-loved fashion as seen on TODAY
Ndlovu says this kimono style cover-up is a must-have for your next beach vacation. She says this lightweight piece not only makes the perfect beach cover-up, but also can be styled as a layering piece with your favorite jeans for a fun evening look.
"Channel your inner 'coastal grandmother' with these flowy linen overalls," Ndlovu said. According to the brand, this is made from 100 percent cotton and most of the 12,000 reviewers love how soft and comfortable the fit is. Ndlovu says to pair it with your favorite simple tee or tank, then top it off with a straw hat and woven bag.
Ndlovu loves this bag for the countless ways it can be worn. This 6-in-1 handbag features three different straps and pouches; you can wear it as a crossbody bag, handbag or under-arm clutch. Not to mention, it comes in 12 different hues to choose, from classic black to a summer-ready yellow.
These unisex water shoes have over 100,000 Amazon reviews! Coming in 44 different colors and patterns, the brand says they fit just like socks and feature a quick-dry fabric that prevents chafing. One verified reviewer says these shoes were a game-changer for her beach vacation and wrote, "The beach we were near had hidden rocks in the sand - big volcanic rocks that hurt to step on — except for me in my fancy shoes. I wore them almost constantly for a week and they held up great under all kinds of stress."
Ndlovu says this innovative hat can be worn two different ways, by wetting it to activate the cooling properties, or you can wear it dry for sweat-absorption. According to the brand, it cools up to 30 degrees below body temperature and features 100 percent mesh polyester fabric.
This flattering cotton-blend dress comes in over 20 different colors and features an empire waist. Ndlovu says women of all shapes and sizes, including moms-to-be, will love this dress. "Style it with heels or wedges for a casual summer wedding or throw it on with flat sandals or sneakers for an effortless everyday look," Ndlovu said.
