The Best Swimsuit Cover-Ups to Elevate Your Poolside Look

fashion blogger wearing a Long Sleeve crochet maxi dress As summer heats up, my go-to poolside staples are always effortless swimsuit cover-ups. Lately, I’ve been gravitating towards cover-up dresses – they’re incredibly easy to slip on and off, especially with my growing bump. With the 4th of July and countless other summer gatherings on the horizon, I figured it was time to refresh my swim collection with a few new pieces. Naturally, I turned to Nordstrom for my first swimwear stop. There are so many darling yet affordable styles and I always love how convenient it is to curate a complete beach or poolside look in one trip. Scroll ahead to see what I picked up!

If you’re looking to spend under $100 on chic swimsuit cover-up styles, Nordstrom is definitely the place to shop. They offer an array of exquisite pieces that only look luxe, like these Topshop crochet dresses (here and here). The open knit fabrics are super comfortable, and the neutral colors complement any swimsuit perfectly.

As much as I love cover-up dresses, there are times when I want to switch up the look. That’s where separates come in. I’m talking eyelet button-ups, sheer pants, and oversized shirts. These versatile pieces offer endless styling options and can be mixed and matched to create a unique beach or poolside ensemble.

I’ll sometimes even throw on a casual dress as a cover-up. Not only are they perfect for lounging by the pool, but they can seamlessly transition from beachwear to your next summer event. And when fall rolls around, you can layer them up for the crisp weather. I linked several of my favorite ones below!

No swimsuit look is complete without the perfect sandals. I love classy, elevated styles that take an outfit to the next level. This season, I’m coveting all the embellished styles from Jeffrey Campbell. They add just the right amount of sparkle to any summer look.
