As you hit the pool or beach this summer, you are likely looking for great shirt cover-up ideas that will work as your swim suit cover-up. We like to find pieces that are versatile and don’t just simply function as a swim suit cover-up, but can also be worn as a regular top or dress too. Frankly, depending on what type of cover-up you buy, you can end up spending even more money on something that you only wear in the summer. For those of us who are budget conscious, looking for a cover up with added versatility is a home run.
The perfect swimsuit cover-up that also doubles as a dress or tunic is the Variegated Stripe Loose Jersey Dress by designer Splendid. This dress features a v neck in front with a tie at the base of the v and an empire waist. The dress also features a deeper v neck in the back. It is a loose knit fabric which makes it perfect for summer swim weather. It is also a short length dress another great summer cover-up feature. The dress features a white base fabric with quartz pink stripes in varying widths that is part of the Splendid Variegated stripe pattern. As you likely already know, we love Splendid for their great stripes and fabrics and this dress is a great illustration of Splendid’s great style and designs at work.
The Baby Fleece Tie Waist Hoodie is another great cover-up option. This features a heavier fabric than the lighter weight loose knit fabric, but that can be great for cooler days at the beach or evenings. With an empire waist, that can be adjusted by the drawstring tie to fit as loose or tightly as you prefer, this hoodie is fitted and features an athletic style. It is short sleeved as well and features a soft baby fleece fabric that is like the weight of a typical sweatshirt. As we mentioned, this piece is also versatile and can be worn over a long sleeve top and jeans in winter weather or over a tank and capris or leggings in the summer and finally as a standalone dress if you prefer. It is also available in a Parsley green color.
The Textured Rib Long Sleeve Hoodie is another versatile option and it is the ultimate light-weight sweater. This light-weight fabric gives it an opacity that makes it sheer enough to wear easily over long sleeve tops in cold weather and over tanks and swimsuit tops in the summer. This cover-up is a great option for times when you need a warmer cover-up option. The hoodie also features a drawstring at the waist which offers added flexibility and detail.
There are a number of great possible options for shirt cover-up ideas and hopefully these are a few that you might not have thought of as traditional cover-up options. As mentioned, we love the versatility of each of these pieces as dresses, sweaters or tunics which give you more for your money and are a great way to extend your budget.
