Fresh Picks: Cover-Ups You Won't Want to Take Off

They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts, but when it comes to swimwear cover-ups, we say what’s on the outside is just as important! When you’re on your way to or coming from a blissful day of sunning and poolside lounging, a gorgeous cover-up dress, poncho, tunic or romper is the easiest way to incorporate style to your swim look.

There are tons of lovely cover-up options to choose from; there’s the playful romper with a sporty vibe, there’s the boho-inspired embroidered sheer tunic, or even a full-length maxi dress if you want a little more coverage for seaside dinner dates. To create the most polished swim pairing, make sure your bikini or one-piece suit doesn’t clash with your cover-up. Pick a cover-up in coordinating tones, or if you’re going for a bold print, opt for a subtler solid bathing suit underneath. You can also play around with mixing prints; just make sure they compliment each other rather than competing two bold prints at the same time.

Below are a few of our favorite cover-ups to love this summer!

Fresh Picks: Loungewear to Live In

Don’t get us wrong, we believe in working hard and playing hard, but we think downtime is equally as important. We all need to carve out that sacred time and space out of our crazy-busy schedules to give us a chance to tune in and recharge.

While it can be tempting to seize the opportunity to lazily slip into our ragged old college t-shirts and sweatpants during off-duty lounging, why not raise the bar on your downtime style? Opt for stylishly comfy (and great-fitting) pieces that feel every bit as lounge-worthy as that beat-up old concert tee from 1999 that you just can’t bear to part with! 

Instead of your usual giant t-shirts and sloppy sweatshirts, go for a super soft basic t-shirt and a pair of loose-fitting jogger sweatpants with a drawstring waist. Remember, simplicity is key to a great loungewear wardrobe—the goal is to be able to mix and match your essentials without putting much thought or effort into it. It IS your day off after all!

We’re not saying you should part with your beloved old t-shirt that brings back joyful memories of summer’s past, but keep your collection of nostalgic clothing pretty selective and leave more room for comfy yet stylish basics that allow you to leave the house for a snack run without looking like you just rolled out of bed!

To inspire a shift into more stylish lazy-day dressing, we’ve picked out a few of our favorite comfy pieces below:
