Style expert, fashion blogger and journalist, Candace Rose Anderson of the blog Candie Anderson (candieanderson.com) has the scoop on 20 trendy beach cover-up dresses that are perfect for summer pool parties, beach vacations, the 4th of July, Labor Day and more.

 

 

Tis the season for summer travel and spending time by the pool! With the 4th of July just a little over a week away, I’ve been sharing cute dresses, a few must have pool floats, and today I’m excited to share the best cover-up dresses. We all want to look cute in the pool, and especially when we get out! You want a great cover-up dress that is not only perfect when lounging on your beach towel, but walking on the boardwalk or hanging out at a friend’s house.

There are so many trendy cover-up dresses to choose from for summer! I found one from Tory Burch that is not only perfect for the beach or a pool party, but you could wear it anywhere. I found quite a few others in a variety of styles – from mini length to midi, off the shoulder and a gorgeous maxi with pockets! Pockets are essential, especially for summer. Who wants to carry a phone, cash, credit cards and a wallet? Not me! 

With that being said, today I’m excited to share 20 fabulous cover-up dresses that are perfect for the Fourth of July, summer 2019, pool parties, beach vacations and more! You can wear them with your favorite flip flops, wedge sandals, slide sandals and more. Have a great summer!

My love for this short sleeve cover-up with tassel detailing is strong! It comes in black or in white. As someone who is rather modest when it comes to bathing suits, I featured the black because the white is rather see-through. It’s totally up to you though! They’re both gorgeous.
