Styling a Chic Summer Cover-Up: Effortless Elegance for Poolside and Beach

Welcome back to The Fly Girl Blog, where you'll find unique styles and inspiration to become the Fly Girl of your dreams! When it comes to summer fashion, a stylish cover-up is an essential item that effortlessly transitions your look from the poolside to beach strolls. A chic cover-up not only adds an extra layer of sun protection but also serves as a fashionable statement piece; where Maui x Lolita has got you covered! Here are some tips on how to style a chic summer cover-up.

  1. Choose the Right Fabric

Opt for lightweight and breathable fabrics that will keep you cool under the sun. Sheer materials like chiffon, linen, cotton voile, or crochet are popular choices for cover-ups. Here at Maui x Lolita our pieces will allow air circulation and prevent you from feeling weighed down in the heat. 

  1. Embrace Vibrant Colors and Prints

Summer is the perfect time to embrace bold and vibrant colors. Opt for cover-ups in vibrant hues like coral, turquoise, or tropical prints to channel the summer spirit. Floral patterns, stripes, or tie-dye designs are also popular choices that exude a fun and playful vibe.

  1. Belt It Up

Transform your cover-up into a flattering dress-like silhouette by adding a belt. A simple waist belt can instantly cinch your waist and create a more defined shape, adding elegance and structure to your ensemble. This styling trick works particularly well with kaftans and oversized cover-ups.

  1. Layer with Accessories

Elevate your cover-up look by adding accessories that complement your outfit.  Pair your cover-up with one of our signature goggles, a wide-brimmed straw hat, oversized sunglasses, and a statement beach bag for a chic and coordinated look. Consider adding a delicate body chain or some boho-inspired jewelry for a touch of glamour.

  1. Play with Lengths and Silhouettes

Experiment with different cover-up lengths and silhouettes to find the one that flatters your body shape and suits your personal style. Maxi cover-ups provide an elegant and flowy look, while shorter options like tunics or kimono-style cover-ups offer.
