Ask Shopbop: Alternative Swim Cover-Ups

Joie sweater, Oliver Peoples sunglasses. Styled by Rachel.

I'm a huge fan of the pool—when the dead-of-summer heat hits, I get there multiple times a week. Dedication to swimming requires a creative approach to pool dressing in my book, so here are a few tips on chic alternative cover-ups.

A loose-knit cotton sweater in a neutral color looks very "I just threw this on" in the best way. I love a monochromatic vibe—try all black! Add a good summer read and a comfortable lounge chair for the perfect evening.

Light-weight, white cotton shirts are a perfect solve. If you're going boyfriend style, wear it as a dress. If it's your size, pair with white cutoffs.

We all have cotton dresses that are too sheer to wear without a slip. Well, here's your opportunity to cheat—a bright printed suit creates depth and flirty peek-a-boo sensibility when worn under a gauzy dress.

Happy mid-summer!
