These 10+ swimsuit covers will take your pool and beach style to the next level!

BEST Swimsuit Covers

I know many of us long for warmer weather and you know what that means… beach vacations and spending time by the pool or lake. There is always a focus on swimwear, but a chic and stylish cover-up is just as important as the bathing suit itself. I have tried a ton of cover ups over the years and in this post I would like to share my favorite and most glamorous brands.

Need swimwear? Check out this post for the best sexy and flattering swimsuits over 40!

Best Swimwear Brands

Everyone has a preference when it comes to cover-ups. I look for cover-ups that I can put on quite effortlessly, that are lightweight and fluid, and that provide some actual coverage and sun protection. I also tend to prefer something that doesn’t go over my head and has a fabric that dries quickly! These are a few of the brands I’ve tried and love. Keep scrolling to see how I styled some of my favorite cover-ups…

Ramy Brook

The cover up I’m wearing above is from Ramy Brook. The exact one is sold out, but these are very similar. Her pieces have beautiful, eye-catching details like beading and crochet that add a little extra glamor to the party. You can easily go for lunch or even a casual dinner by the pool and you will feel lofty and sophisticated and appropriately covered. The price is on the higher side, but considering the dual functionality, it’s worth the investment, and the pieces wash and wear beautifully so you’ll enjoy them for years to come.

Elan

Elan has cornered the market with glamorous beach-to-dinner cover-ups. Their maxi dresses add drama but are very lightweight and also function beautifully as cover ups.

Michael Stars

I like Michael Stars shirt-style cover-ups. They offer great options with shorter hemlines. Some of their styles also have nice details like an eyelet. And the price is great considering the quality!

becca

Becca is just SO good at swimwear. I love their swimsuits, sarongs and chic cover ups. You really can’t go wrong with Becca pieces!

Robin Piccone

Robin Piccone is another swimwear brand that is ideal for women over 40. Their bathing suits are sexy but offer coverage, which is a must for me! No one needs to see my butt on the beach. The cutouts on this coverup dress are so unique and beautiful!

L*Space

Here’s another line that does a good job of blending fashion and function. They have the perfect mix of sexy, modern designs and classics that you will wear for years to come.

9Seed

This brand has been super popular for its breezy cover ups and tops. They transition effortlessly from pool or beach to lunch. Their pieces are a little more casual than Elan. I bought one of their cover up tops last year and was able to wear it as a cover up, with denim shorts and with jeans!

Blue Rod Beattie

I LOVE their swimsuits. Again, sexy and modern…but still functional. This white coverup dress has beautiful crochet details.

Charo Ruiz Ibiza

For more luxurious, bring-on-the-glam options, go with a Charo Ruiz Ibiza cover-up or a Rococo Sand kaftan. SO GOOD… just trust me!

Now for some of my favorite cover ups…

My favorite thing about this cover up is that it can be worn as a cover up OR a dress. On your way to the beach and then have lunch right away? No problem. This gorgeous eyelet coverup (also in black!) will blend in perfectly! All you need is a pair of cute sandals.

This is another piece that you can wear as a dress, as a cover up or as a tunic top with a cute pair of denim shorts! I love the colors in this trapeze style dress from Free People. It’s sold out unfortunately, but this one and this one are very similar and give you the same look. The latter also comes in a really pretty combination of brown and blush which I love!

This beautiful white coverup from Elan is perfect for the beach or pool. The crochet panels are just gorgeous…and the bow in the front makes it easy to put on and take off. And this is a similar shorter version!

The next cover-up is a simple, shorter, flowy slip dress from Elan. It has a nice strappy detail on the open back. And the sides have pockets where you can stash your keys or phone if you need to be hands free!

Free People makes several maxi dresses and jumpsuits that also work perfectly as cover ups! Love the ruffled asymmetric hem, ruffles at the bust and embroidery details on this white maxi. Wear it over a swimsuit or wear it with sandals for dinner. And speaking of DRAMA… oh, I like some drama for me (with my clothes, not in my life.) This exact maxi is sold out, but this one is similar and I love the plunging neckline!

See what I mean about glamour?? Elan does it!! This maxi coverup features a halter neckline and an oversized flowy fit. I love how it flows in the wind! It also has a low back that shows just the right amount of skin! This exact dress is sold out but this and this are very similar!

These pants are one of my favorites because they are super comfortable and chic. I love the idea of ​​covering pants that go from the beach to lunch when you need a little more coverage. I’ve also worn these while traveling (just make sure the pants you choose are thick enough so they don’t show through). Pair them with a matching bandeau bikini top for an incredibly elegant look.

Surprise, surprise…another cover up from Elan! Possibly my all-time favorite swim cover-up… definitely winning my mental, “Most Chic” award… is this maxi dress cover-up from Elan. I love it so much that I have it in two colors. It falls long so if you are tall it will be great. If you’re little like me you can always wash in the cold and lay flat to dry. It shrinks a bit in the wash. If you need the length, hand wash it!

favorite beach or pool shirts michael stars white tassel and lace kimono cover up on vix bikini top, best cover ups, bathing suit cover ups, cover up dresses, erin busbee fashion blogger over 40

This lace kimono style cover-up is the one to grab when you don’t have time for anything finicky. You can wear this as a button-up shirt and leave it open or tie the front for more coverage. It’s also made from wafer-thin cotton to keep you cool and dry. I’m a big fan of easy on, easy off cover ups. This one is also available in black!

This photo makes me miss my short lob haircut! This coverup from 9seed is a great example of a maxi coverup that you can dress up or down. I wear it dressed with sandals and a cute purse, but I’ve also worn it over a swimsuit. Maximum versatility with this one makes it perfect to pack for a beach vacation!

Another one from Elan. I mean… talk about glamour! I love the pleats on the sleeves and the sexy slits in the skirt that show your legs as you walk and move. The waist has a drawstring so you can adjust it however you want. And the sexy, deep v-neckline shows a glimpse of your bathing suit.
