Covering up at the beach is a time-tested method of avoiding a burn, but
Mott 50, a line of sun-protective clothing, ups the ante. The brand’s
T-shirts, tunics, dresses, and hats block
98 percent of the sun’s rays.
(A typical white tee shields against 86 percent.) The garments maintain
their protective power for 30 washes (mott50.com
; $35 to $145).
