This cover-up is perfect for when you feel hot AF in your bikini and dont actually really want to cover up. Its probably impossible to wear this without standing like Angelina Jolie in that dress with the crazy slit at the 2012 Oscars.
2. Lace Crop Top Cover Up & Lace Midi Skirt Cover Up Set From Topshop
Matching sets are cool as shit, so obviously wearing a beach cover-up set will make you cool as shit, too. A two piece cover up is barely any more effort than wearing a regular single-article cover-up, but it will definitely make it look like you have your shit together and planned a full trendy beach outfit.
3. BDG Uma Fishnet T-Shirt Dress From Urban Outfitters
Youre lucky Im telling you to buy this so early in the season, because Im sure that every Instagram model will be posting photos in this cover-up all summer. This way, even when you only get a third of the likes, you can still be excited that you had it first. Youre welcome.
4. Blue Tie Dye Beach Playsuit From Missguided
The best thing about this beach playsuit, besides the fact that it offers lots of cleavage options, is that it comes in a blue tie dye printso when you inevitably spill on it while youre drinking a fishbowl at a boardwalk bar, it will probably just blend in.
5. Embroidered Off-The-Shoulder Cover-Up From Anthropologie
This cover-up is one of the few cover-ups that actually covers up (say cover-up again), which can be your excuse for purchasing something from Anthropologie thats probably going to get thrown in the bottom of your beach bag or used to cover your face while youre laying in the sun. You can also totally get away with wearing this in a couple of different social settings, so when drinks at the pool turn into an all day event, you wont look like a cast member wherever you go.
6. Isabell Blue Chambray Shift Dress From Tobi
So you felt really good when you went to the beach, but then you caught a whiff of fried dough and obviously had to get some. Enter this chambray shift dress. It will literally solve all of your problems. (It might solve like, two or three of your problems. But thats still pretty good.) Any shift dress that gives you the chance to show off your bikini top is perfect for creating optical illusions, aka showing off your boobs and hiding your food baby.
7. Lira Marina Off-The-Shoulder Romper From PacSun
If were being honest here, (which, duh, we always are) the first thought that popped into my head when I saw this romper cover up was that looks like a nightmare to pee in. The second thought was thats gonna give me weird tan lines, but I promise that I actually really like that was definitely number three.
