Posh Beauty Blog's favorite swimwear cover-ups for summer
By Carla Snuggs
Summer is here, so it is definitely bikini season. I love cover-ups and caftans because they are easy to throw over your swimwear when you don't want to expose too much skin. Plus, a great cover-up look super chic when you're lounging by the pool and depending on the venue and the style, a good cover-up can take you from the beach or pool to cocktails or a casual lunch. The latest trends in cover ups for summer include sarongs, stylish rompers and beautiful tunics. Here are some of Posh Beauty Blog's favorite cover-ups.
What's THE swimwear cover up that every woman must have? A sarong of course! It's a versatile item that can be worn as a sarong, dress, shirt, or shoulder wrap. Lightweight and easy to care for, toss it into any beach bag and you're ready to go. Sassy Sarongs carries over 100 different sarongs in both missy and plus sizes, many unique to their website. My picks: Carribean Palms Pareo and Cheetah Print Sarong
New York City based Mazu Swim designs and manufactures fashionable swimwear separates and cover ups for women sizes 8-24. The brand, created by a husband and wife team with over two decades of swimwear industry experience, offers women sophisticated prints and thoughtful silhouettes including bikinis, tankinis one piece swim styles and cover ups. My pick: Poly Chiffon Cover Up in Kara's Karma. I am wearing it below.

As an aside. I am loving Mazu's Swimwear as well, including their cute one-piece skater swim dress.

Tasc Performance Cover-ups
Tasc Performance is a bamboo apparel company that blends fashion and function - Bamboo fabric has a higher degree of moisture wicking and odor resistance, and a softer feel than synthetic fabrics and inherent UPF 50+ sun protection without the use of added chemical treatments. Tasc has a variety of stylish, breathable styles that make great cover ups and easily transition from beach to lifestyle. My picks:
Tango Tunic: With a flattering A-line silhouette, open back with criss-cross braid trim and a high-low bottom hem, this tunic is the perfect coverup for a day at the beach or to throw on and go after a morning workout. Market Dress Featuring a wide open v-neck at front and back, and an elbow-length dolman sleeve with open stitching details, the Market Dress is easy to throw on after a workout or a day at the beach. Festival Romper With three pockets and hand-braided straps this romper doubles as the perfect cover-up on the beach or an easy transition to/from your workout. I am wearing the romper here on Instagram.
MetroStyle Smocked Midi Dress
MetroStyle carries a wide variety of fashion-forward styles at amazing price points. I picked this beautiful midi dress, perfect for covering up at the beach and then heading from beach to soiree. Just add accessories and go. Purchase : Smocked Midi Dress
