I ran across this adorable hi low beach dress on Where to Get it, and the dress is by LuLus. Now hi low dresses are something that come in and out of style on the street.  But when it comes to the beach, these dresses are always in style.  Why? Because they are a great beachy look and work well as cover ups.

Hi Low Dress

A hi low dress flatters any figure but this is particularly flattering for a petite women because the shorter front gives a lengthened look to the legs.  Coupled with a wedge heel sandal in a neutral color this style will make you look longer legged, slimmer and taller.

This soft pink color is quite feminine and beach appropriate and her floral headband is the perfect Princess Bride match to the dress.  You can find this dress for under fifty dollars at LuLus.  It is just adorable.  Note that the longer back of the dress does wonders for concealing a bottom that you don’t want on display.  This is just a great cover up look for summer that flatters the figure and mesmerizes men all at the same time.  I ran across this dress on a site called Where to Get it, at the online dress store Lulus.




Take note ladies, a trend with the young ones can work well as a flattering swimsuit cover up.  It hides flaws, and makes your body look curvy and feminine all at once.  This is the Brandy Melville one size fits all dress.  Now usually these adorably sweet dresses work only for the young ones.

Backless, they are couples with cute strappy bra tops.  Now out on the street, you would only want to wear this dress if you are forever twenty one.  But at the beach, such a cute little dress can be an adorable cover up for a swimsuit.  Throw it on to walk across the pool area, or get from your hotel room to the pool.  These dresses are pool-side appropriate and hide flaws in the rump.  They are also free, easy, cotton and breezy so you will stay cool but be more covered.

Flirty cover up dress hides and flatters love handles and buttock

Try Brandy Melville for ideas.  Their dresses and clothes are one size fits all, and they will fit many.  However, if you are plus size one x or higher you may need to look for similar alternatives from plus size clothing retailers.  The concept works though.  A little loose dress thrown over your swimsuit not only looks great, but hides common flaws on the real end, and love handles. 

Love Brandy Melville! Their clothes are designed to fit girls of all body shapes and are quite flattering and stylish. Very popular with the teens and young ladies in recent years.

Sometimes you just are in a fiery fun mood and want to add a pop of color to your swimwear look. There is no better way to do this than to add one piece of red clothing to the mix. This can be a red swimsuit, a red tank top or cover up, or as shown here, red sweat pants. It’s a bright and fun look that can add pizzazz to your basic look.

Red sweat pants – a playful swimsuit cover up

Red mixes best with extremely neutral colors. Shown here are Juicy Couture velour original sweat pants in red slam. You can find more at Juicy Couture. These sweats are velour, but you can also find them in terry cloth, a material that I adore as well because it is cool and beach appropriate.

These red sweat pants are shown with the perfect little sandal in neutral beige. I am going to let you in on a serious style secret. Whenever you decide to go with a bright color, make sure it is only one bright thing in your overall outfit. This gives you the perfect pop. You are not going to want to pair a red piece of apparel with a brightly patterned purses, bathing suit, beach towel or beach bag. The idea is to go really plain and simple, then have only one pop of red.

These sweats are an adorable cover up for a simple black bikini top or white bikini top. A toned down white bikini top would look so great with these sweats. I love this little pop of color, and as long as it is paired with neutral colors, you are good to go. I personally prefer to wear only the sweat pants, or only the sweat jacket. Too much red all over is going to stand out too much so avoid wearing both pieces of the sweat suit at once. Stick to one red piece (sweat jacket or sweat pants) so you do not over do. Just be warned ladies, red is the color of sexual attraction! Therefore, keep it toned down and never overdo it with too much red.  A hint of playfulness is all that is needed. You can find these sweats shown at Juicy Couture store online.
