By now you've got your swimwear situation (whether bikinis or one-piece suits are your steez) sorted and your schedule is starting to become packed with poolside parties, you're going to need a coverup that's just as chic and cool as what's hiding underneath.
With a long, hot summer in full swing, the best kind of coverups are those that are breathable and breezy, easy to slip on and off, won't turn into a rumpled mess in your beach bag, and — last but not least — make you look like the beach babe you want to be. We've picked out a few minis, maxis, rompers and more that fit that criteria, all of which are designed by LA-based brands.
Whether your pool party preference is to go classic (nautical stripes are forever in style) or be a beach-y bombshell (cut-outs and crochet anyone?), you're sure to find something to suit your suit in this set. Now you just need your bag stocked with essentials and pair of stylish flat sandals and you're good to go.
