Even if a beach vacation isn't in the cards for you this year, let's hope you can still get yourself to a pool, lake, or river. That cute new swimsuit isn't going to show itself off, after all. Along with your sunscreen, hat, and tote bag, all that's left to pack is a functional and stylish cover-up.
When sifting through Instagram, I noticed four types of swimsuit cover-ups popping up again and again. Aimee Song, for one, prefers to match her bikini to a sarong, while Lucy Williams is partial to oversize button-down shirts. Scroll down to shop the best editor-approved cover-ups for summer.
