If you’re planning on spending a significant portion of the summer in your costume, make sure your cover-up looks the part too! Check out these stylish swimsuit cover-up options.
The kaftan is the queen of all swimsuit cover-ups
Opt for a kaftan, for a chic look while heading down to the beach or pool this season. Not only are they available in a range of styles, prints and colours, but they’re also flattering on all figure types and can take you from day to night – by simply changing your shoes and accessories.
Make way for a maxi dress
Like the kaftan, maxi dresses are a versatile option. They’re also easy to wear, giving you that effortlessly chic look.

Re-purpose a kimono
A kimono in a soft, flowing fabric does double duty at the beach. It looks great before or after a swim and is oh-so-easy to remove.
Say yes to a sarong
Always a favourite, the sarong is great swimsuit cover-up. Try wearing it around the waist in the traditional way or twist it into a skirt or an asymmetrical one-shouldered dress for a cute look.
Try a tunic
Tunics work extremely well as a swimsuit cover-up. They’re the perfect length and can be found in a shape and style to suit your personality and figure.
