Chic Summer Swimsuit Coverups

The Chicest Summer Swimsuit Coverups

4 June

The thought of slipping into a bikini or even a one-piece just a few weeks postpartum frightens me terribly, but with the 90+ degrees heat this past weekend I pulled out my suits anyway and braved it.  I mean, just in my own backyard that is.  Thank goodness for tunics and caftans that double as dresses and make the whole summer swimsuit post-baby situation way more appealing right now.

I’m loving Cuyana’s assortment of coverups this season.  They’re just my style–minimal, lightweight, chic and can be easily dressed-up summer vacay-style.  This black caftan was my backyard lounge-attire of choice this past weekend but I’m also eyeing this gathered-neck maxi coverup (especially in my color-palette of choice, white and/or black).  I have a similar short mini tunic that I pull out every season as a swim coverup so I also can’t recommend this style enough, as it’s gotten quite a bit of love over the years.

A few additional styles and brands of note I’m also loving from around the web…

I’ve long been a fan of 9seed for the comfiest vacay pieces.  I own this coverup top (it’s one of my faves to pair with shorts for a day poolside) along with matching pants that I always toss in my beach bag.  All of their pieces are super effortless and breezy and just what you’d want to throw on for a day in the sun.

For a piece that’s a bit more dressy–say if you’re in Mexico for a summer wedding perhaps?  I LOVE this eyelet dress... or a wrap linen skirt to put on over your suit.

For flirty florals and beachy dresses I’m loving: Faithful The Brand.  Also, for bikini’s to wear under said coverups (I just snagged this suit from the brand).

Similar in style to this black caftan from Cuyana is this minimal linen coverup from Jenni Kayne.
