For summer pool parties, weekends spent seaside, and far-flung getaways alike, a chic cover-up is essential—and the best of the bunch can also double as sundresses, making them as ideal to wear away from the water as they are aprés swim.

“They’re floaty and full of volume and enough to make a dramatic entrance to your dinner party,” says Tiffany Hsu, fashion buying director at mytheresa.com. “When shopping for a transitional cover-up, look for silhouettes that have more substance to them like sleeves, a self-tie belt, or unique detailing—something that would feel like a regular sundress, but in a lightweight, breezier fabric that feels right at the beach or by the pool.”

Whether you’re seeking a fashion-forward version or one that reads chicly nonchalant, these 15 cover-ups will take you from the water to summer cocktails, balmy dinners, and tourist activities with ease (and style).

Cover-up or not, sunburns happen—here’s what to do. But before you even go to the beach, get yourself a new suit. From tie-dye to flattering black, we’ve got you (partially) covered.
