Bargain Buys: Cover-Ups

When hitting the beach or pool this season, cover-ups are essential. What I love about cover-ups is that anything goes, and this season is no exception. Whether it's a strapless, a tank, a tunic, or a romper, you can't go wrong. Even though there are beautiful designer cover-ups, I prefer to get something less expensive because the sand and chlorine usually end up destroying my cover-ups by the end of the season. Here are my favorite bargain buys.


Tommy Bahama $88 vs. Burberry $275


Old Navy $15 vs. Betsy Johnson $118


Forever 21 $8 vs. Becca $68


Old Navy $15 vs. Juicy Couture $107




Merona (Target) $18 vs. Trina Turk $107


Forever 21 $20 vs. Becca $68


Roxy $40 vs. Ella Moss $125


Gap $49 vs. Shoshanna $198


Forever 21 $26 vs. Missoni $896

  5. These are all adorable and so inexpensive! I feel the same way about cover-ups. By the end of the summer, mine are always ruined, so I hate spending a lot of money on them. I need to get a few so I'm going to check out some of these!

  11. You're right!! Coverups rock cause you can wear whatever fun trend you want! If you are not feeling rompers for regular wear you can get one as a cover up! Its a great way to try out some trends!

  12. I so agree with you about not doing designer. Total waste of money...it will only get destroyed. These are all amazing choices! I'd wear every single one! :)

  16. Loving the turquoise dress! I totally agree, why pay so much when it's going to get ruined pretty quickly by the elements.

    I think the designer ranges are designed simply for lounging around by the pool sipping cocktails, lol!!

  17. I was so close to ordering the white tunic a few days ago. The butterflies are so sweet! Definitely regretting passing on the purchase, but I may need swing by Gap sometime soon and buy it for an upcoming beach trip :)

    Great blog by the way!
