Cheryl Melissa Odabash Swimsuits - Cover Up
by Ida Hsiang
Aah ... it's a three day weekend and in this warm weather, that means pools, beaches and other water activities. And while we've found the cutuest bikinis (or monokinis) to frolic around in this summer, sometimes, a little coverage is appreciated. But who says that your cover-up can't be as pretty and flattering as your swim wear? Plus, while we've been doing crunches to get the perfect swimsuit-ready tummy, sometimes, a little extra cover is appreciated! So check out our five picks for gorgeous beach cover-ups, one at every price range so no matter what your budget may be, you can lounge poolside in style and confidence!Emilio Pucci - Printed Cotton Voile Sarong, $450.00Topshop - Turquoise Shell Print Playsuit - $52.00Tibi - Malawi Caftan, $148.00Missoni - Durban Crochet Knit Patchwork Caftan, $945.00Asos - Chiffon Tie Maxi Beach Dress, $22.41
Until this season, crochet hasn't always had the best rep, at least when it comes to summer style. I mean, not only does crochet conjure up images of that scarf creation your grandma's been knitting for the past 6 years, but it also hardly sounds like something that would be comfortable to wear in the sweaty months of summer. Wrong! Not only would your grandma be the least likely person to rock these sexy takes on knitwear (okay, maybe not the least likely), but these dresses are fresh and breezy especially for the season ahead! This crochet halter dress from Victoria's Secret is perfect for a day at the beach (knitwear at the beach? No joke!) or for a barbecue with friends, while this sequined version from J. Crew puts a totally different spin on the trend, making it hot for a night out! Flutter sleeve, tank, boat neck, halter, you name it -- these dresses make crochet look like one of the most unexpectedly versatile looks this season! Flip through the slideshow for the selection!
