Best Swimsuit Cover Ups to Wear this Summer

by | Style | 2 comments

Happy Friday from Malibu! Over the past several weeks I’ve shared lots of summer inspiration from White Dresses For Summer, the Best Sandals and Wedges For Summer, my Essential Collection with Cabana Life, Summer Collection from Southcott and the Best Places to Buy Swimsuits Online. Let’s talk about the best swimsuit cover ups to wear this summer.

Some of the most popular items in March were the two coverups I wore in Punta Mita. This lightweight cover-up was a huge hit. I have found it back in stock in this gorgeous blue but also in hot pink and white! It is so soft and comfortable. The burn out fabric and hem line detail add to it’s great style. I think I will be adding the other colors to my cart. It will be a staple at the lake this summer.

So many of you have also loved the midi dress cover up from the AWL Essentials Collection with Cabana Life. I love this beautiful print. The silky fabric keeps you cool in the heat. This beautiful style goes easily from poolside to lunch or dinner.

One of the staples of my Essentials Collection with Cabana Life is the terry tunic dress in both sleeveless and long sleeve. Another great option for a cover-up that can go from the pool to lunch or dinner. I also wear them as dresses to run errands or even a date night. Love a double duty dress!

The French terry dresses also from my Essentials Collection are a darling option. They are a lightweight fabric and I absolutely love the embroidery detail. No one does details like Cabana Life.

Summersalt is one of my favorite swim brands and they have a darling smocked maxi dress that will truly take you anywhere  in addition to being a cover-up. Can’t decide which color I love the most: the red or the blue?

A gauzy white cover-up is quintessential for summer. This tiered dress I absolutely love! This lacy beauty needs to be on a beach in Hawaii or the Carribean!  Batik prints like this and this are always reader favorites.

I have included a full boutique of other styles including the sarong skirts below. I’m off to move my daughter to a new house and then enjoy some sunny SoCal! I’ll share it on Instagram stories as we go.

    Love all of these cover-up options! Do you air dry the Cabana Life french terry coverups or put them in the dryer? Thanks!

      Hi! I air dry all of my Cabana Life items. I think clothes last longer and look better in general when you do. I use a steamer to get any wrinkles out if needed.
