One aspect of our swimwear wardrobe that can sometimes be overlooked is a stylish swimsuit cover-up. If you are on the beach or at the pool this Summer then you’ll be spending the majority of your time switching from sun bed to casual eatery, to the bar and you need something that not only looks great, but is comfortable too.
You need a cover-up to throw on over your swimsuit and finish your beach wardrobe. Here’s our round-up of the best beach cover-ups to buy now. Snap one up now before you go off to the sun!
A classic poolside cover-up, the maxi dress is a great choice. The loose fit will ensure you keep cool and comfortable and the longer length is great if you prefer not to show your legs too much. Choose one in a fabulous colour as it’s likely you’ll be make-up free, and you will want to ensure your skin glows and your eyes sparkle!
We love this maxi from Ozzie Cozzie Co, which will look particularly fabulous on everyone. Did you know that Turquoise and Teal are universal colours that suit us all?
The Bandeau Dress
Avoid tan lines with a strapless sundress in a soft, flowing fabric. It is the perfect choice for those of you with a Triangle body shape as it will balance out your proportions as well as skimming over your hips and bottom.
If you have a Lean Column body shape, then you’re lucky enough to have your pick of styles that will look fabulous on you!
We love the idea of a playsuit. Easy to slip on and off and perfect for trips around the local area when you need a break from sunbathing. Pair with a colourful beach bag, necklace and sandals.
Another beach classic, there’s a reason the kaftan has been around for so long. Undeniably chic and easy to wear, the shorter versions are also perfect for showing off a great pair of legs! There are lots of options when it comes to kaftans, you could go sheer if you want to show off your figure, choose a flattering block of colour, or opt for something more romantic and floral.
A big trend for Summer 2016, the kaftan can be found everywhere now. Kaftans are wonderful because they can continue on long after summer to be worn as a tunic with your jeans. We also love kaftans because it really doesn’t matter whether you are short, tall, thin or if you ate a huge lunch. Who would know? You’ll look amazing in your swimwear no matter what size you are.
Even when you’re on the beach or by the pool, accessories are needed to complete your look! There are some gorgeous over-sized beach bags available in the shops right now as well as fabulous tassle necklaces. Rosarini not only has this gypsy style tunic, it also sells the tassle necklace to go with it. Go for something really bold and funky! Embellished sandals, oversized hats and a pair of fabulous sunglasses are all essentials – and a flamboyant cocktail of course!
