A Kimono

If you want to look stylish and sophisticated on the beach, then having a kimono that you can use to cover up is a great idea. Delicate and feminine, the right kimono can enhance the look of your bathing suit, help to protect your modesty, and show off your fashion credentials in one fell swoop. Pair with a cute pair of gladiator sandals and a ballerina bun and you’ll look so sophisticated. 

A Matching Patterned Set

If you’re looking for a cover-up that will take you from the beach to the bar without skipping s beat, a matching two-piece set is ideal because it is not just a cover-up, but a structured outfit in its own right.

A Boyfriend shirt

If you want to look cute and carefree on the beach, then using a boyfriend shirt, or an actual man’s shirt, like one of these cute options from Buzz Ricksons, is the ideal beach cover-up solution. The great thing about an oversized shirt is that you can leave it completely open if you don’t mind showing off your figure, or you can close a few buttons if you want to be more modest, and you will always look beachy and carefree.

A Kaftan

If you want to make a dramatic entrance to the beach, then wearing a long floaty kaftan in a bold paisley print is always going to rock out for you. The way they drape the body is flattering for almost every shape and the unique Indian-inspired prints that many of them boast are just the right vibe for a laidback beach look that will have all eyes on you. Best of all, you can whip your kaftan off in seconds, so access to the water will not be impeded at all.

From shirts to kaftans, if you want to cover up on the beach, you can do so stylishly!
