Switch Up Your Typical Beach Cover Up!

Why bother wearing an old tee over a bikini? This summer’s lineup of cover ups are far chicer. From sarongs to sundresses, it’s hard to go wrong with whichever option you choose to layer over your swimwear. Get inspired by the top five cover up trends featured below, guaranteed to make a big splash this season.


In addition to its effortless silhouette, a sarong tied around the waist covers up areas of the body that many are sensitive about, including the thighs, hips, and stomach. They often have ties to prevent them from falling down as well, and the design is manufactured in a variety of colors and patterns for the ultimate beach day statement.


Become one with the waves in a long, flowing top, which usually hits between the waist and ankles. The lightweight fabric establishes an easy boho vibe--no embellishments needed.


Who says you need to save your favorite floral frock for an end of summer picnic? Off-the-shoulder, spaghetti strap, and halter dresses make for the perfect poolside style staple.


For those who are inclined to let the swimwear take center stage, a crochet overgarment may be the best choice. Larger holes in the fabric will allow your bathing suit to peek through, whereas smaller ones will let the cover up itself be the star of the look.


The traditional Japanese garment has officially become a closet chameleon. Once worn to exclusively special occasions, the elegant robe is now the hottest summer accessory.
