Once you’ve got your summer holiday booked, the next job on the list is making sure you look the part. And if you’re heading to the coast, you’ll want to get a coverup to keep looking chic en route to and from the beach.
They’re perfect for adding a protective layer when you’ve been sunbathing for that little bit too long or for chucking on to go for lunch or dinner.
Whether you’re after a floaty kaftan, floral shirt dress or fashion forward slip dress, shop your new holiday wardrobe from our round up.
Kaftan With Buttons, H&M, £17.99
A traditional billowing kaftan is a failsafe option. This blue pal print, midi-length version is lightweight enough to still keep you cool, but also does up at the front if you’d like a little more coverage.
Colourful Strappy Dress, Zara, £25.99
Bring the sunshine with you no matter where you go with this bright but minimal design. Throw on over your bikini and head to the bar for a cocktail.
Crochet Detail Sun Dress, Matalan, £14
This colourful number is a pretty, detailed way to cover up and makes the perfect pairing worn with a straw beach bag and flip flops.
Textured Knit Tunic With Shimmer, Zara, £25.99
If your holiday is more Ibiza opening parties than the south of France, then this glamorous number will see you through your poolside hangout.
Grace Embroidered Cotton Maxi Kaftan, Monsoon, £70
Expensive yes, but versatile? Absolutely. While a beautiful piece to wear for walks along the shoreline at sunset, it can also double up as a dress for dinner, a formal touch to jean shorts and t-shirt when worn undone, or a wedding guest outfit when worn over a cream satin slip dress. Wear with the most glittery sandals you own.
Curve Jersey Beach Maxi, ASOS, £22
If oversized, floral designs isn’t your style, opt for this maxi dress instead. Get your neon fix with the thigh-skimming side split to show off your new sandals.
Orange Tropical Cover Up Shirt, George at Asda, £10
A shirt dress will suit every body shape and if you want a more structured fit, just add a belt come dinnertime. The mini length also means you can still catch a tan on your legs too.
Pouch Pocket Tunic, Zara, £15.99
Linen is your best friend in hot weather and this tunic will add a sartorial edge to your beach look. The pockets is also big enough to hold your hotel room key and phone easily.
Spotted Slip Beach Dress, Marks & Spencer, £18
There’s no reason why you can’t bring fashion to the beach, and with this slip midi dress, you’ll be right on trend. Team with a pair of Birkenstocks and lashings of suncream.
