It is bohemian chic (Nicole Richie’s trademark style) at its best with this Iza Dress swim cover-up from Delia*s. The mixing and matching of brightly hued prints creates a gorgeous, unique dress. While these particular prints have a certain childlike quality to them, the cover-up is not all innocent: it has a deep v-neck and high side slits to still show off some serious skin. Snag this style for $39.50 at Delias.com.
Slinky and sexy
Covering up doesn’t have to mean conservative. We love this slinky coverup dress from Serene. Featuring a knot detail at the center bust, walk the beach while looking fabulous in this pretty slinky cover-up dress. Shimmy into this sexy look for $38 at LordandTaylor.com.
Never underestimate the layers of value we can achieve from a cover-up that doubles as a hot maxi dress. Maxi dresses remain on-trend this season. We love that they are fabulous for covering up on the beach, or wearing on your next lunch date. Grab this look for $55 at TopShop.com.
We always love the versatility of the tunic, and Liberty for London for Target’s Dunclare Print tunic cover-up makes us feel like we’re on an exotic safari. For even more fun, layer with a black slinky tank and wear it out after you’re done at the beach. Buy it for a steal at $24.99 on Target.com.
Move over, Mermaids
After a fun day at the beach, toss on something that will continue to make the heads turn with this wild Roxy Mermaid Cover-Up, $44 at Zappos.com. We’re crazy for the fringe, and for the stares we know we’ll get wearing it!
Bandeau at the Beach
When beach bound, we tend to want to show skin – but not everything all the time. Along with strappy golden sandals and your favorite jewelry, Aqua’s smocked bandeau cover-up is great beachwear, but also great life-wear. Buy it for $42 at Bloomingdales.com
