Hello SOTGC community,
I previously wrote a post about summer swimwear trends since the weather is beginning to get warmer. As I was thinking about other topics to write about I realized that I always have trouble finding versatile, yet cute and affordable, swimwear cover ups!
Sometimes, when I don’t have a cover up on hand I just throw on a pair of shorts, shirt, or a light dress. I’m assuming most women do this too! But it can and does get a little bit uncomfortable wearing a full outfit on top of a swimsuit.
Not only does it get really hot but your clothes end up getting covered in sun tan oil, sun block, sand, etc. It’s even more uncomfortable when you go for a swim and have to put those clothes back on. Even though you lay out in the sun to dry off, your swimsuit doesn’t fully dry.
Then when you put on your make shift “cover up” of shorts, shirt, dress, etc., the water begins to seep through, and you end up with unsightly watermarks! Of course it’ll eventually dry, but if you’re running errands or going to grab a bite to eat you probably want to feel dry while doing it!
If you’re hesitant about spending money on a cover up, carefully consider the following options below! You can just throw these on and go from the beach to the boardwalk, etc. and vice versa! All of these cover ups can be found at Nordstrom Rack!
Beach Bunny Perfect Day Tunic $39.00: This piece doesn’t even look like a swim cover up! It’s super chic and sophisticated and has a drawstring waist so you can adjust it as much as you want! It comes in white and black so both colors will match with everything!
Vix Antigua Vintage Kaftan $44.97: This Kaftan has a fun and colorful print all over and also has a drawstring waist with gold tone detail! It’s sheer construction makes it light and airy so that you keep cool on even the hottest of days!
Beauty and the Beach Swimwear Mia Crochet Pant $65.00: If you want other options than dresses/tunics, take a look at these awesome pants! They would be the perfect beach cover up for a tropical vacation!
Trina Turk Terry Short $24.00: If you like the idea of pants but don’t want a lot of fabric try these shorts! The terry material is great for absorbing any excess water without making it terribly noticeable to everyone around you!
Are you ready to enjoy that summer sun? Do you want an easy solution to wearing bulky clothes to the beach? A cover up is the perfect answer! Share this post with your fellow beachgoers so that they can soak in those rays and NOT the water!
