3 Gorgeous Swimsuit Cover-Ups You Need this Summer


3 gorgeous swimsuitthmbfinalPoolside_DaniAustin

Headed for sun and sand? I’ve been stocking up all of my warm weather style staples: sunhats, sandals, swimsuits, and sunnies to name a few. Don’t forget to add chic swimsuit cover-ups to your packing list. From kimono to scarf, check out these stylish options for the time between hotel room and poolside. Whether you’re spending the day poolside, lounging on the beach or are just dressing for warm weather, a bathing suit cover-up is a must-have for this sunny season.

While I was on the Johnny Was website I was excited to see how many styles and options there were. I narrowed the search down to my top 3. Take a look…

1. KIMONO, Johnny Was Mix Print Kimono

Choosing the right swimsuit is an obvious way to amp up your shoreside style, but you also can’t forget about what goes over your swimwear. Wearing a more innovative swimsuit coverup like this kimono is a fun way to amp up your poolside style. Layer it over your favorite suit and crop shorts, or pair it with a maxi dress and an obi belt!

2. Eyelet Tunic, Johnny Was Bell Sleeve Tunic

I hit the beach in Key West wearing a turquoise tunic as a cover-up with eyelet details. The peek-a-boo detailing gives passersby just a glance at your swimsuit underneath. I threw on a pair of shorts and this gorgeous embroidered beach bag before heading to a restaurant for lunch.

3. Silk Scarf, Johnny Was Hummingbird Scarf

There are many ways to wear your favorite scarf. Johnny Was signature silk scarves are 43″ x 43″ squares with tassels in each corner that are truly one-of-a-kind. For your cover-up, tie your scarf as a skirt, tube top, or create your own halter like I did! (Ignore the sunburn, ouch!) I love this option for a breezy silhouette that delivers both comfort and coverage.

    Love these looks! Especially the colorful kimono! Its fun and creative, but not in a strange way. Rather in a way that makes me want to travel and appreciate other cultures, haha!

    Keep shining Dani! I’ve been a subscriber of yours for a while on youtube. I do not normally care deeply about style and beauty, but you have a very warm and fun personality that keeps bringing me back. God bless you!!
