Whether you are heading to the pool or beach this summer, you'll probably need a cover up at some point. We like the Zip Front Terry Swim Cover Up
. It features a hood, zipper at the front, side pockets, and elbow-length sleeves. Terry cloth is perfect for when you are a bit wet too.

. It has pointelle detail throughout, short sleeves, and a longer front that can be tied together. Looks great with shorts or a skirt for the office. If you prefer the look with the red belt
, that is for sale too!
