The Fashion Magpie Beach Dresses and Cover Ups

Coverups and Beach Dresses.

OK, I am totally in love with two cover-up brands this season: Mikoh and 9Seed. I am having serious buyer’s indecision with regards to which styles to purchase but I want them all. The top contenders —

MIKOH MIRAKAMI DRESS IN CRYSTAL BLUE (SEEN ABOVE IN TAUPE, CAN ALSO BE WORN ON SHOULDERS)

9SEED CAFTAN IN WHITE — PROBABLY THE MOST VERSATILE

9SEED ANTIBES DRESS — I LOVE THOSE FLUTTER SLEEVES

9SEED TUNIC TOP

MIKOH JUMPSUIT

9SEED OVERALLS

You can get this gauze coverup look for less with this under-$30 steal, which comes in several great colors, or this Michael Stars score, which is somehow marked down to under $40, plus an extra 25% off with code EXTRA25! I think I need it in the white or navy…

I am, if you can’t tell, into the gauzey texture these brands boast, and I have had this J. Crew top in a similar fabric in my cart for awhile, imagining I’d pair with simple denim or jean shorts. J. Crew makes a button-down style in the same fabric, too, if that’s more your vibe, and Gap has a really cute collarless variation (love the hot pink). Upgrade pick: this style from Xirena.

I am loving the idea of these breezy styles paired with sleek, strappy The Row-inspired footwear. The balance feels just right, and modern, and sophisticated to me. The Row had a pair of sandals called “The Bare Sandals” a season or two ago (still available in a fun yellow color here) that I so wish I’d snagged! But, luckily, there are tons of similar styles for less out now. A few favorite pairs along these lines:

P.S. If it’s swimwear you’re after, I shared some of my favorite suits here and updated this list when answering the final question in this week’s shopping query post!

P.P.S. Chic home finds for under $100.
