Coverups seem to come in practically every print and color imaginable, so have fun with them now and then! Whether it’s floral or polka dot, experiment with a bright and bold piece that’ll make you stand out wherever your swim schedule whisks you off to.

Shirt dress coverup


Shirt dresses are an instant classic. From the city streets to the sandy shores, a crisp, white shirtdress will work just as well in your daily outfit as it will in your swim ensemble.

Throw one on over a cute, polka dot swimsuit to give your look a retro pop of print. Pair them with a classic set of slip-on flats for some preppy East Coast flare.

For a breezy piece to throw on with ease, opt for a kimono coverup. These are incredibly lightweight and allow you to show off your fabulous swimsuit.

And seeing as kimonos are also quite trendy in the fashion world, this piece could potentially work with your regular outfits as well.

Belted coverup

Off-the-shoulder coverup


Off-the-shoulder details make just about any garment look ultra chic, meaning a swim cover that flaunts this style is a definite keeper. Pair a strapless (or removable strap) bandeau swimsuit underneath so there’s nothing interfering with the exposed detail.

As for styling, throw on a glamorous straw hat, espadrille sandals, and aviator sunglasses to make it look as if you’re about to bask on the gorgeous white beaches of St. Tropez. (and if you actually are, consider me jealous.)

And don’t forget to apply extra sunscreen on your shoulders!


This style is considered one of the latest trends on cute summer dresses for women!
