Top 5 Affordable Swimsuit Cover-Ups

    Heading to the beach or pool anytime soon? As you know all too well, figuring out what to wear over your bathing suit as you travel to the beach or pool can be a real pain. Denim is awful when wet…a regular ol’ dress is comfy, but could get unnecessarily dirty or wet…and now we’re just starting to run out of options. That’s why—even though it feels like just one more thing to buy—it’s great to invest in a cover-up you can throw on over your suit. You want something classic that won’t go out of style (saves you from having to buy a new one each year) and is comfy, cute and affordable. Find the perfect cover-up and you’ll never spend time searching for something to wear to the pool again. With a bathing suit and cover-up on, you’re good to go! Now you just need sunscreen and a towel.

    Here are six of our favorite finds for cover-ups:
