What To Wear

Best Cover-ups For Pool Season

A pool cover-up is part of the sun-approved ensemble cast alongside your swimsuit, sunnies, sandals, and shady hat (don’t throw just anything on over your fabulous one or two-piece). From sarongs, to maxi dresses, to kimonos, to oversized tunics, to beach trousers, covering up couldn’t get much cuter. Slap on some sunscreen, swipe on a bright lip, and make waves in one of these cool cover-ups.


Ted Baker pleated cover up in berry sundae, $252: Wearing this pleated skirt cover-up with your swimsuit makes for an instant dress! And the semi-sheer fabric and super high, side slit equal total beach babe, with or without the ocean.


Zimmermann Printed Sarang, $260: Tie this wild thing on! This leopard print sarong is finished perfectly with a ‘currently trending’ fringe trim.


Trina Turk Zebra Kimono, $197: A kimono is one of the most popular cover-up styles. The multi-coloured trim on this one pops and is a fun contrast to the zebra print.


Swimsuits for All Olivia Shibori Tie Dye Short Sleeve Tunic, $72: Tie-dye continues to reign strong as the print-to-be…in our closets, so why not also snag a poolside option, too? It just makes (fashion) sense.


DVF Cotton Voile Beach Culottes, $330: With a wide leg and elastic waistband you will be in and out (and back in; you can’t lay on your Swan floatie forever!) of these light-weight culottes in no time.


Nanette Lepore Pom-pom Tunic, $176: The pom-pom trim on this tunic screams life is a (pool) party. The cut-out detail on the back is especially swoon worthy.
