Looking for a summer-sexy beach cover-up that is appropriate for the sand and the shore? Whether you prefer a micro-mini or a printed halter dress, the goal is to find a pretty and perfect dress that not only complements your bathing suit and your body type but also helps you look cute and feel awesome.
A sexy and flowy tunic dress is a versatile and comfortable summer swimwear staple that is the perfect go-to alternative to a pareu or standard swimsuit topper. If you are petite and pear-shaped, make sure your tunic dress hits the leg at mid-thigh to cover your bathing suit bottom without revealing too much skin. To match your baby blue, pink or yellow bathing suit, choose a printed, V-neck tunic dress that includes these Easter-egg pastel hues. Woven metallic or silver sandals lend a casual vibe to your boho-chic ensemble.
Perfect for a stroll along the beach or at a poolside barbecue, a printed rayon, silk or cotton maxi dress will camouflage a full bottom and wide hips. Pair your ankle-length maxi dress with your tiniest string bikini or V-neck one-piece suit. Accessorize a solid-colored maxi dress with a silver charm bracelet and dangling beaded earrings. For a pop of color on the feet, wear a pair of jewel-encrusted flip-flops or gold-braided sandals.
If you are looking for a dress that flatters a small or large bust, choose a hot halter! Instead of grabbing a pair of cutoff jean shorts, choose a minidress that covers your suit but doesn’t sacrifice your sex appeal. When you are ready to dance the night away at an evening pool party, drape your sexy halter over your strapless bikini top or one-piece bathing suit. Pair your minidress with silver-tone hoops and flat sandals for instant comfort and style.
For casual comfort, pair an above-the-knee cotton dress with your bathing suit. After a day of sun and fun, cover your bathing suit with a printed T-shirt dress that complements your solid-colored swimwear. If you have a boyish frame, a V-neck T-shirt dress with a drawstring waist will add curves to your figure. For evening, dress up your casual dress with wedge heels and an armful of gold or silver bangles.
