Gone are the days of uncomfortably slipping denim shorts over your wet bathing suit. Jorts are always a tempting option to throw on over your swimsuit before you hit the beach, but this summer is all about trying new things, including new beach cover-ups. Here are 10 different beach cover-ups to try out for the next time you are heading to the shore!
1. Give Sarongs A Try
In a beach town where “No Shirt, No Service” signs are nowhere to be found? This cover-up is for you. Easy to throw on and off, sarongs are perfect for hot summer days when you want as little clothing on as possible.
2. Wear Your Favorite Wrap Dress
If you are wanting to look as cute on the beach as off, try out a wrap dress. This cover-up is great if you are planning to catch a bite to eat directly before or after hitting the beach.
3. Get Yourself A Crochet Tunic
Can we even call this a cover-up? If you’re in the market for cover-up that doesn’t really cover up, give crochet tunics a try. Just try not to spend an entire day in this outfit, think of the tan lines!
4. Throw On A Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses are perfect for chill days at the beach when you want to relax and keep it loose. Paired with a floppy hat and strappy sandals, this outfit will have you ready to lay out on the sand, close your eyes and listen to the waves.
5. Use A Belted Cardigan
There’s nothing easy than slipping off a light cardigan before jumping in the water. A belted cardigan is perfect for those who wish to show off their swimsuit even with their cover-up on.
6. Find An Oversized Button-Up
You likely won’t even have to pay for this cover-up. Search around through your boyfriend’s, brother’s or dad’s drawers for an oversized button-up that doubles as an adorable outfit for the beach.
7. Wear A Kimono
Sometimes after taking a dip, you want to throw something on with minimal coverage so you can still enjoy the sun on your skin. Kimonos are great to wear by itself, or paired with another cover-up such as a flowy dress.
8. Take Out Your T-Shirt Dress
T-shirt dresses are a summer essential. They are able to easily transition from shore to store so if you are planning on hitting the shops after riding the waves, use a t-shirt dress as your cover-up.
9. Wear A Romper
The amount of different styles of rompers are endless, so take your pick depending on the occasion. You can style dressier rompers with heels if you are planning on post-swim drinks, or go for a casual romper with crochet details if your whole day will be dedicated to the beach.
10. Use A Printed Tunic
When spending the day at shore, you can never go wrong with a printed tunic. Paired with gladiator sandals, a twist knot headband and sun-kissed skin, this outfit will have you looking like a bohemian goddess.
