Hardworking Swimwear Cover-ups

At White Stuff, we’re big on beachwear. We love flattering swimsuits, festival-ready flip flops and basket bags. But our favourite item this summer? Versatile swimwear cover-ups.

Whether slipped over your bikini for an ice cream pit-stop, worn with shorts while out exploring, or paired with jeans and wedges for drinks with friends – the styling opportunities with summer cover-ups are endless. That’s why our collection is a little different to the rest – we’ve gone ditsy for details without forgetting shape, making every piece wearable from the beach to the bar. Our Rose Tassel Jacket is the perfect example – the floaty fabric and delicate details are as at home by the sea as they are about town.

But the proof is in the wearing, so we asked two of our favourite fashion bloggers to show us just how hardworking these beachside beauties can be.

A Montenegro beach break with Anna from The Cornish Life

Wondering how to cover up at the beach this summer? Anna wore her swimsuit cover-up with our white Island Textured bikini top and bottoms, topped with a wide-brimmed crochet hat while exploring the Murici shore

“During my recent trip to Montenegro, we visited a beautiful freshwater beach at Lake Skadar. After we’d spent the day kayaking around a collection of islands in the area, and visited the Beska monastery, we paddled back to the beach for lunch and a quick dip.

”I’m naturally very pale, so other than a bit of sunbathing and swimming, I’m always careful to wear pretty swimwear cover-ups, like this jacket. I love how delicate and floaty it is – airy enough to stay cool in the heat, while lightly covering all the areas that risk getting burnt!

It was great for wearing on the kayak to protect my skin, and it was perfect for covering my shoulders when visiting churches and the monastery on Beska island too.”

An alfresco afternoon with Morgana from Coffee Work Sleep Repeat

Morgana styled her cover-up with one of our jersey tees and floaty Little Delhi midi skirt for a family stroll along the harbour.

“For the summer months, I like to have a core wardrobe that I can mix and match, so stylish and versatile items are my staples. This makes holiday packing easier and means there’s no fuss in the mornings, so I can be up and ready quickly for family days out.

“This is where my love for summer cover-ups comes in. The Rose Tassel Jacket can be styled so many ways – whether as a beach cover-up, or paired with a casual midi skirt for a family lunch by the harbour. It’s comfortable, but doesn’t compromise on style.

I’m looking forward to wearing this cover-up over and over again during the summer, and plan on teaming it with a bikini and denim shorts on holiday this year – perfect for lazy days at the beach – then popped over a vest top, trousers and heels for evenings out.”
