Trend Forecast: Cover Ups & Resort Wear

Posted on July 12 2023

Here at Sandpipers, we live for all things swim, and while we pride ourselves on being fashion forward, fit experts when it comes to bikinis and one piece swimsuits, we are also obsessed with finding the perfect swim cover ups and resort wear pieces for our customers to help them build their summer and travel wardrobes!
In this edition of the Trend Forecast we’ll highlight our current crop of favourites, from the must-have classics to the season’s on-trend pieces that we can't wait to wear this summer. Whether you are headed on a cruise, to a resort, on the beach, or by the pool, you can be sure that our team has sourced high quality and breezy, cover ups, dresses, pareos, and separates to outfit you for your most effortlessly chic season yet!


Festival / Boho / Flower-Child

It's the time of the season for outdoor music festivals, bonfires on the beach, and summer romances!  Fall in love with this dreamy aesthetic in airy dresses and separates with flirty features like crochet insets, lace-up details, tiered skirts, and
smocked bodices.




Sheer Fabrics

Sexy and see-through!  Mesh fabrics are not only fabulous for showing off that adorable new bikini underneath, they can be layered over other pieces for added sultry drama.  We are so obsessed with this trend right now, most especially with the new crop of pieces from Koy Resort's "Escape Mesh" Collection.  This collection features tunics, dresses, cover-ups, and sarongs, all in a breathable, sheer mesh fabric.  Sheer beauty, sheer genius!




Lovely In Linen

Nothing says summer like crisp cotton linen fabrics!  It's breathable, natural, and wears like a dream.  This season's picks are playful with a side of effortless sophistication.  In a maxi dress, button-down, wide leg pant, or pull-on shorts, this trend is a definite beach vacation staple.   





Weave some dreams in 70's inspired silhouettes in flirty crochet fabrics!  This glamorous trend allows for a peek at what's underneath and looks oh-so-chic paired with a cocktail by the pool.  If you are looking to add a crochet fabric piece to your vacay rotation, check out the newest pieces from Koy Resort's Flamenco and Zuma Collections.




Dramatic Details

Stunning silhouettes with unique details make these statement pieces stand out in a crowd!  We love a colourful pattern, strategic cut-outs, sparkling rhinestones, and versatile pieces that catch glances from all who lay eyes on them.  In dresses, skirts, or floaty kimonos, these trending cover ups are here to bring on the drama!




Crop Tops & Mini Skirts

Reminiscent of our teen years this trend is back in cute and comfy silhouettes to beat the summer heat.  They are easily packable and provide endless mix and match possibilities making them fabulous for traveling.  These picks pair crop tanks and tees with mini skirts with unique design details like tiers and twist knot waists.




Classic Best Sellers

While some trends come and go with each passing season, there are certain staple pieces that are always on point and always on our travel packing list!  Lightweight button-down beach shirts, tunics, dress-style coverups, and one-size breezy kaftans, these picks are best sellers for a good reason.  We love them for how perfectly they float over a wet bikini and how they look great on a vast array of different body shapes.




Sarongs, Pareos, & Wraps

The versatility of a longer cut pareo and the convenience of a short sarong mean these swim must-haves are always in our pool tote or beach bag!  This season's trending beach wraps are bursting with luscious colours in lightweight fabrics.  Tie one on and hit the beach!
