Lazy days, and beach days. Two of our favorite things about summer. But when it comes to dressing, we still want to add a bit of polish to our laze-moods. Particularly when it comes to wearing our swimwear aprés-beach.

Enter: the cover-up, the hero garment for transforming swimwear into streetwear. And we're not just talking caftans. Cover-ups come in many shapes and sizes, from maxi skirts to lightweight pants to printed dresses—even jumpsuits.
A few tips to keep in mind: Don't be afraid to mix prints, and look for colors that complement each other rather than compete. Remember proportion—if you're wearing a bikini top, go for a longer silhouette at the bottom. One-pieces can double as bodysuits.
Also, consider the occasion. If you're going to a fancy restaurant after the beach, a bikini top is probably not the best option. Going to a fun bonfire? Bikini your heart out!
