You can’t talk about jumpsuits, playsuits and rompers without showing how easily they work as beach cover ups. They’re a complete easy to slip-on outfit in themselves, have a casual vibe that translates naturally to the beach, and are stylish enough to wear around a resort. Now, these pieces are not the ideal bathroom companion as you have to almost completely undress to use the restroom, but they can be so effortlessly cute that they’re still worth it. Just remember cover ups are all about comfortably getting you from point a to point b, like your hotel room to the pool, or from the beach to a breezy seaside restaurant.

Normally I wouldn’t gravitate toward a metallic bikini but a matte style that’s shimmery rather than shiny is the way to go for metallic swimwear. The linen romper and strappy sandals give the outfit a perfect Greek vacation vibe, whereas the striped bag and mirrored aviators feel more preppy Cape Cod. Neutral tones and gold accents are what bring the outfit together to make a solid coverup that’s seriously cute. Throw your fun phone case and flamingo scrunchie in your tote and you’re ready for the beach.

6. KAANAS Susu Two Band Slides
The perfect resort coverup. It has everything that spells glamour for a summertime swim without looking too Vegas; gilded pineapples, sleek slides, and a simple but chic swimsuit with gold zipper accents. If there ever were a way to achieve the laidback jetsetter look, this is it. To keep things stylish, why not throw on some gold bangles if you want to do some pre-pool shopping or schmoozing? While I’d usually suggest not wearing jewelry to the pool, in this case put them in your tote when you take a dip.
