Swimsuit Cover-Up Styles You’ll Wear Again and Again

When it comes to swimsuit cover-up styles, I won’t wear just anything.

Let me explain.  I’m not a style snob.  It’s not about how much it costs, it’s about quality, versatility and personality.


Quality Swimsuit Cover-Up Styles

Many of the swimsuit cover-up on the racks look as though I could have made it in ten minutes or less.  You know what I mean, the ones that look like a poncho with the sides stitched up.  Odds are, if I could make it that fast, the manufacturer made it even faster.  Where’s the interest in that?  I want some kind of interesting details, that’s what makes it feel unique to me.  Fortunately, there are plenty of quality cover-ups to choose from this year, like all my picks below!

Versatile Swimsuit Cover-Up Styles

Versatility becomes important when you’re going to be out all day and will likely end up at a bar or restaurant for lunch or dinner.  Most beach towns are fine with beach attire for casual dining, but sometimes you don’t want everyone to see your entire bikini while you’re trying to eat.  It is after all, a coverup.  This year boasts lots of shirt dress cover-ups and caftans that aren’t completely transparent for a more versatile look.  Simply add a belt or tie and you have an enviable, brunch-to-beach look.

Muted colors are also in, you’ll notice lots of white and chambray cover-ups, which makes for great transition pieces.  These on-trend cold-shoulder mini dresses bring the heat.  Not to mention, they are an easy look to pull off.  Add accessories, chunky earrings and wedges, and no one will even know it’s a cover-up.

Cover-Up Styles with Personality

If it doesn’t speak to you, is it really worth your money?  I use cover-ups year after year.  Each and every one I own is unique to my style and personality, which means they don’t go out of style.

I practically lived in the Yfb On The Road Raven Kimono on my last vacation.  Knowing I’m about to ‘pop,’ I didn’t want to purchase a cover-up this year that would only get me through June, so I searched kimonos.  What a great buy!  Never underestimate the value of a great kimono.
