Ready for beach season? Here are 10 swimwear coverup options worth a look
Swimwear might be looking more stylish than ever this season, but don’t forget about that convenient lightweight layer best known as the coverup. It’s still an essential piece for beach frolics in Santa Monica and elsewhere or lounging poolside as you entertain houseguests.
For summer ’16, coverups continue to be informed by a flowy bohemian aesthetic, and just like most of today’s fashion staples, it’s really anything goes when it comes to the varied available coverup styles. Selecting the best option depends on your personal taste and what best suits your body type.
For a more traditional take on the coverup, consider a classic caftan that’s as easy to throw on – or take off – as a pair of flip-flops.
This season, designers are offering this shape in breezy white fabrics with pompom detail as well as options featuring colorful prints with embroidery, retro patterns or A-line shapes that have a bit of “Mad Men” appeal. And if you’re not feeling 100% beach-body-perfect, don’t underestimate jumpsuits as a stylish coverup approach to up your sartorial game while adding to your level of comfort after a swim.
