Ecote Sneak Peek Cover-Up Dress

2 / 8

Lounge poolside in this multicolored slip dress with a bit of a hippie vibe. The cool pattern makes it look more like a dress, so you may be able to get away with wearing it as one later in the day. It's easy to throw on over your bikini and will go perfectly with woven sandals.

ASOS Lace Trapeze Beach Dress

3 / 8

A little lace goes a long way in creating a beach look for the girly girl. Show off a colorful suit underneath or pair it with a black suit for a movie star look. To top it off, don't forget your floppy hat and biggest sunnies

Lucy Love Resort Dress

4 / 8

Cool cover-up or trendy LBD? A sexy V-neck, a 3/4 sleeve, and a tie waist are just a few of the things that will make this simple black dress your go-to beach cover-up. A cute one-piece suit will even act as a cami underneath!

River Island Luffield Animal Maxi Beach Dress

5 / 8

As much as we love our maxi dresses, a high-low hem is much more practical for all those long walks on the sand. The embroidered statement necklace is pretty genius, too, because you know how much we hate being without an accessory or two.

Roxy Floral Splash Cover-Up Dress

6 / 8

This floral cover-up dress doesn't just belong on the beach! Slip on a pair of sandals, belt it just below the ruffle, and stash your suit in your tote. This dress will take you from the beach to dinner flawlessly this summer.

ASOS Knot Front Cutout Beach Dress

7 / 8

You've worked hard to get that bangin' bikini bod—maybe you don’t want to cover it up with a shapeless tunic! This knotted cutout cover-up doesn’t cover up much, and the alluring shade of turquoise will have all eyes on you.

Xhilaration Geometric Print Swim Dress

8 / 8

This stylish black swim dress is perfect to wear to your next pool party. With a flattering boat neck and subtly sheer geometric print, it can pass as a sundress with the right accessories. Step into a pair of metallic sandals and carry a woven tote for a chic look that’s easy to shed when it’s time to jump in!
