Whether you prefer a dress or a tunic you can throw on to go to dinner or a bottom that goes perfectly with your bathing suit as the top, there are so many chic ways to transform your beachwear into everyday wear (and to even incorporate these pieces into a year-round wardrobe). Shop some of our favorite swimsuit cover-ups by style in the galleries below.
