I love beach season so much that I could live in my
swimsuit. Well, I practically did one summer when I was five. My family has the
palm-to-face pictures to prove it. And without fail, they bring up that
mortifying fashion faux pas whenever I buy a new swimsuit. Thanks for the
reminder, Mom. That’s why I only wear swimwear near water—no
matter how cute it is.
The same rule applies en route to the beach or pool. Sure,
you can hit the snack bar or boardwalk to show off your ultra fab bikini. But
if you’d rather suit up at home than change at the pool’s bathroom (ew) or eat
at a restaurant with a dress code, that’s where throwing on a no-fuss beach
cover-up comes into play. It’s the best of both worlds—without looking out of
place in either. So I rounded up the brightest beach cover-ups to let you wear
your bikini all day. Well, just ‘til you get home, right?
Summer stripes come into full force with this strapless
piece. So easy and so cute, what’s not to love?

A cover-up that works as a dress and skirt? The outfit
combos are endless. Go with the boho vibe and add a breezy tunic to the mix.

beachwear like a neon romper. When the sun goes down, top it off with a
chambray shirt and heels, and you’re ready to hit the town.
