With the recent wave of warm weather, I simply can't get beachwear off my mind. I'm counting down the days until I can mix spring and summer styles into poolside apparel. Swimsuit cover-ups with prints, color blocking, black and white tones, and floral patterns are a "must" for summertime. A stylish bathing suit is half the look; the A+ beach look is complete with a chic cover-up. Long, short, and even romper style cover-ups are necessary items and make for the perfect summertime staples.
Behold, the many irresistible cover-ups that should make their way into your wardrobe for this (coming) summer. A variety of details, colors, and patterns are trending, so it's easy to find something suitable for your personal style.
Black and white cover-ups are the perfect combination for any suit that matches. A solid color would look best under these styles, but if the black and white is solid, a printed suit can often look chic, as well. But with patterns, it's best to keep it simple. Also, try to avoid having a million straps everywhere from your swimsuit and cover-up... That never looks good.
I can't get enough of these bright styles. They're very stylish when matched with the correct swimwear, and very fun, too. I love how there are a couple of longer styles, too, and this is great because they can compliment just about any body type. It's important to choose a style that's just right for your bathing suit and your body.
Blue and green are huge summer hues. With so many swim suits in these colors, a cover-up that matches would be a great investment. First off, let's agree that mixing prints isn't pretty. So it's smart to shy away from bold printed bathing suits when trying out a cover-up like the ones pictured above. With blues and greens, all that you need to do is match the color, make sure it isn't too busy, and you're good to go. Remember not to mix too many colors.
Take this advice and build the best summer wardrobe you can. By looking good this summer, you'll feel good. And with those two things, it'll be impossible not to have a great summer. Remember the rules: always match and never clash. Do this, and I'll be proud.
