Fashion fact: We like to wear every swimsuit with a beautiful cover-up. While the majority are strictly meant for the beach or pool, there are some we can also wear out and about — specifically dresses! When we can mix and match our swimsuits with cover-ups, why shop for something we can’t wear?

Our goal was to find cover-ups that would take you from the beach or the streets. These are some of the best styles we’ve found to date, and we think you’ll love them just as much as we do. Check out our top picks!
