Dressing for a beach day can be tricky. We have experienced a few battles with insecurities throughout the years but can finally say We feel more confident than ever when we are at the beach. It was an overnight change that we are so grateful for, and we still remember the first day we wore a swimsuit without feeling nervous. And who do we have to thank for this transformation? We attribute a lot of it to quite a few self-love rituals that helped us learn to love our bodies. But something that very much sped up the pace was finding chic cover-ups that made us look feel more styled and made me feel confident.
French girls are our style icons, so of course, we are always turning to them for inspiration, and you will rarely see them at the beach without a chic and effortless cover-up draped over their bikinis. All you need for your swimsuit collection is one or two good styles and a bin filled with cover-ups that make them each feel brand-new every time you wear them. We love that with many of these style options, for example, a good button-down shirt or a barely-there dress, you can easily wear them with more than just swimwear. Bring the South of France to your backyard with the fun bathing suit cover-ups below.
1. Le Button-Down Shirt
Our absolute favorite item to pack for any vacation is an oversize button-down shirt. It looks so cool over a swimsuit and can also be worn to dinner, on the flight home, or to explore the destination of choice. No pool day is complete without this in our bag.
2. Barely There Dresses
The sheer trend is all over the runways, and while we are loving it, we tend to shy away from such a risky fashion move with our everyday Miami wardrobe. However, a trip to the pool or beach is the perfect opportunity to have some fun with a see-through item. We are kind of obsessed.
3. Bottoms Up
Sometimes, when the bikini is so good, and the sun is relentless as can be, covering up is not ideal. In this case, it’s fun to try a pair of shorts or pants that still show off that bikini top. This is a great time to wear linens or knits.
4. Pareo Party
A good pareo brings the party to whatever beach or poolside you land. We think this is the chicest add-on to any bikini or one-piece look that needs a little something to take it to the next level.
