This breathable fabric will keep you cool even on those scorching summer days, and the bias-cut ruffle trim gives a refined finish to this flirty number.

Dorothy Shain Citrus Grove Beach Cover-Up
Who doesn’t crave fruit in the summertime? This citrus-themed maxi dress is a Dorothy Shain and Anthropologie collaboration that you need to add to your suitcase for your next tropical vacation. We love maxis for beach cover-ups because they can transition from beach to bar with ease—and they have room to breathe after you’ve stuffed your face with fish tacos.

Sun Sand and Sequins Mesh Kimono Beach Cover-up
Hitting up a lot of pool parties this summer? We’ve got the cover-up for you. This sequin mesh kimono has taken the phrase “business in the front, party in the back” to new heights with its sweet and sassy design. We love the surprise sequined, no-rain-needed rainbow back that will dazzle and reflect sun rays like a disco ball. The black mesh will go with anything, and the fabric will dry quickly so no wait time or awkward wet patches when you’re slipping it back on between dips in the pool.
To buy: Sun Sand and Sequins Mesh Kimono, Nasty Gal, $40
Palmacea Guacamayas Pants
Wide-leg pants are here to stay, which is great because who wants to try and shimmy on a pair of skinny jeans in 90 degree heat? Slide on into these nature-inspired, vibrantly printed beach pants any time you’re at the beach without the worry of getting stuck (like you do in those denim cutoffs). These loose pants will flatter any body type, and the drawstring waist will cinch in and flatter all who wear them.
To buy: Palmacea Guacamayas Pants, Anthropologie, $98
Brunch to Beach Wide-Leg Pants in Yellow
If bold patterns aren’t your style for a beach cover-up, we suggest going with stripes. A vertical stripe will elongate your legs and this yellow color is playful without being overbearing. Wear these pants with a bikini top for a day at the pool and swap it out for a breezy eyelet top and slides for hanging out at the cabana.

ASOS DESIGN Tropical Leaf Print Co-ord
We love a fabulous matching set, and this leaf-print pattern is a tropical touch that’s ideal for all of your summer adventures. With this set, you can mix and match to change up the outfit and get several wears out of one look! Wear the top and bottom together, wear just the bottoms with a swimsuit, wear the top and swap the bottoms for a beach pant… the possibilities are endless!

Tularosa Delilah Pareo
Polka dots are having a major trend moment this year. If your swimsuit doesn’t already have them, why not work the trend into your beach look with a sarong. This style is a lightweight essential for all of your beach destinations, has an accented frayed tassel trim that will flutter with every ocean breeze, and is foolproof to style. Simply wrap and tie it around your waist and, boom, this effortless polka dot sarong is done.
