This summer, whether you are heading out on a tropical beach vacation or staying remote and heading to the pool, a cover up is a must have accessory!

Whether you are going on a weekend getaway or even a full trip, the sarong is a great option for the transition periods of walking through the hotel lobby or going for a walk when the sun is setting.
#2 Crochet Pants
Crochet pants are very in for this 2020 summer season coming up. They have large holes that go throughout them, making them sheer throughout. They show off your tan legs and make you look so great! I recommend getting these pants in white and pairing a colorful bathing suit bottom underneath to give a pop of color. Trust me, you are going to see these all over your Instagram feed and all over the beach this summer.
#3 Crochet Dress
When you think of a bathing suit cover up, you think of this, a crochet dress.

So, this would be another good cover up set to wear over a colorful bathing suit. If you are looking to rock this style, it would look best with a bikini since the top is a crop top.
#5 Oversized Tee
You can never ever go wrong with rocking a classic oversized basic or graphic tee. It is the simplest item to keep track off and to throw in your beach bag. Oversized tees will definitely keep you on trend. The best part about tees on the beach, you can also use them to cover your eyes and face when the sun is getting too hot or too bright! This one is a win win!
Kimonos have been trending, starting back a few years ago. They are so versatile in the way you can wear them. You can tie them, wear them open, or pair it with a pair of denim shorts. The cool thing about kimonos is that they come in solid colors, but also very floral and girly patterns. Another key part when looking to buy a kimono, is the length. They make short waist high kimonos and long to the ground ones. There is a kimono for everyone’s style and one to match any bathing suit. So, if you are headed somewhere tropical, try out a cool floral patterned kimono, you are for sure going to be a hit on the beach!

The button down boyfriend T-shirt is the perfect look paired with a hat. You can tell by the name that it is an oversized button down that you can wear in so many ways, including, open, buttoned, or even tied. You can also find this in so many colors like a sheer white, classic denim, or even black. This is an up and coming trend for this summer 2020, but it is for sure to be seen on celebrities and fellow beach goers!
#8 Maxi Skirt
Maxi skirts are so cute during the summer time and can easily be a transition item from the beach to night. If there is a slight in the leg, it will allow for a breeze so it will not get too hot when you are taking a walk on the beach. Maxi skirts have been trendy for as long as I can remember, so you do not have to worry about falling out of the summer trend!
