Whether you've booked up a beach holiday or you're holding out on all this gorgeous sunshine we're having right now, a stylish cover up is key to staying safe in the sun.
Topshop's silk palm tree print kimono dress by Boutique (£130) is a good fit for the trend-setting among us, while Net-a-Porter's semi-sheer white muslin and peach embroidered kaftan (£210) is how to do understated luxe.
Savvy shoppers should browse through the rails at River Island, Mango, New Look and H&M for affordable options that are just as worthy to wear when it's scorching hot outside.
Think about your whole look too - if you've opted for a plain coloured bikini or one-piece, go for a punchy print cover up. If not, then think about opting for sheer, crochet, silk or linen.
Vertical stripes are always a winner, and florals are a huge trend this summer.
Take a look through this shopping guide for some chic beachwear to cover up in this summer.
