Summer is so close we can practically smell the sunscreen. We're already snatching up swimsuits for swimming at the pool and boating on the lake, and beach bags for carrying our beach day necessities. And that got us thinking about the rest of our waterside ensemble to pull the whole look together: a beach cover-up!
Crochet, kimono, wide-leg pants, or wrapped sarongs, we gathered up 12 beach cover-ups in an array of styles that will look amazing on and off the shore. Scroll down for the winning pieces we pulled and how to wear them with or without a swimsuit!
It's time to bid adieu to winter and welcome spring. Shake off those winter blues and get ready for some warmth and sunshine by updating your spring wardrobe. Aside from figure-hugging pencils skirts and comfy mules, which are great transitional pieces to have in your closet, maxi dresses are another must-have fashion staple for the new season. From dresses with flirty bell sleeves to stylish flocks that scream "Spring Break" (yes, we're all in need of a vacation ASAP), these casual maxi dresses will keep you comfortable and looking your best all season long. Scroll through to see all the chic buys we're loving.
While our inner Carrie Bradshaw is dying to strut the streets of New York in some Manolo Blahniks, the idea of standing in six-inch heels all day long seems quite painful. Luckily, you don't have to sacrifice style or comfort, thanks to platform sandals. Not only does the chunky platform lengthen your legs, it also adds some height underneath the toe area to alleviate pressure. Whether you're looking for shoes that are easy to walk in or need a stylish pair to rock with your flowy maxi dress, these 10 platform sandals will soon become your sole-mates.
You've seen bathleisure (a combination of "bath" and "athleisure") all over Instagram, beginning with the South Korean singer CL wearing a bathrobe gown to the CFDA awards earlier in November (gasp). Soon after, Rita Ora walked the MTV Europe Music Awards red carpet in nothing more than a terry cloth robe, hair towel, and a few lavish accessories, making it A-okay for you to strut around in your favorite housecoat. But it wasn't until Rihanna showed up on the cover of Vogue Paris, dressed to the nines with an Emilio Pucci towel on her head (yes, a towel!), that we began to rethink our bathleisure reservations. If Rihanna is doing it, obviously it's fashion, right? We already sit around our apartments in a robe and towel post-shower, and now it's in style. Just slap on a few standout accessories and make sure to snap a pic for all your followers.
As the heat turns up and the layers come off, the mission to find the best pieces for keeping cool — figuratively and literally — takes the lead. Beat the hot weather, even in the dog days of summer, with the an ever useful wrap dress.
A personal favorite of mine, the wrap dress is a summertime clothing chameleon. Wear it as a cover-up to the beach, a special occasion dress, or to work! Though this style is truly year round, I've found 12 of the best summer wrap dresses full of floral prints, lightweight fabrics, and bright colorways made for twirling in sunshine.
