It’s a day of friends, fireworks and hanging poolside: Fourth of July is almost upon us, and I’m here to make sure you have every wardrobe box checked before the big day. Finding a July Fourth ensemble worthy of Instagram is a task in of itself. But sometimes you just need something that you can wear over your patriotic swimsuit that’s cute, cool and within the red, white and blue spectrum, which is where 4th of July bathing suit cover-ups come into play. Cover-ups are a summer necessity about which we often forget. They’re the perfect addition to your favorite swimsuit, and play well for poolside parties and beach bonfires. This Fourth of July, I don’t want you to forget to bring along a cover-up, so I did the searching for you and picked out some of my favorites.
Imagine the sun is shining, you have a burger (or veggie burger!) on the grill and you’re lounging on a pool chair taking it all in. Of course, you have a swimsuit on, because you never know when the pool party will actually turn into a pool party. You’re ready to jump in at any moment, but you don’t look like you’re expecting it, because you’re donning the cutest swim cover-up known to man. It pairs perfectly with your patriotic bikini and doubles as an adorable outfit. Red heart-shaped sunnies on, and you’re the star of the Fourth of July party.
