I am heading to Vegas for a conference this weekend. Although I will be working, I’m going to try to head to the pool in between meetings to catch some rays and people watch. I’ll be sun ready with my floppy hat and sunscreen, but one thing I had to buy was a new, fun cover up. It got me thinking, are you ladies ready to hit the poolside with some sassy cover-ups that will have you pool ready even if you decide not to take a dive?

Venus clothing is my one stop shop for cover ups. They have a variety of different styles that cover you up or ones that you can throw on if you did decide to take a dip in the pool or ocean. My first feature is very classy and sophisticated. It’s got a plunge v neck that’s short and has slits on the side. The tunic cover up comes in navy, or red and white with a nice trim on the high collar. I like this because its multi functional. You can wear it by the pool and wear it with your linen pants or jeans at night.

Crochet is one of the trendiest materials right now and for a good reason! It’s airy and has a hippie inspired laid back look. This crochet cover is gorgeous. It’s see through so make sure you are comfortable with others gawking at you, but it does great job not looking overbearing and tacky. This is a great look at a resort with some nice shoes.

Terry cloth is great when you are on the sand. You don’t feel guilty for getting sandy and wet in this casual and easy to wash fabric. Although this fabric will not last for years, it’s a good one to have for those casual barbeque pool parties when you don’t want to smell up your nice cover ups. I like this one because its slightly sexy with its peek -a-boo low cut top and longer sleeves to keep you covered into the nighttime hours.

Have you had a trainer all spring or worked your abs all spring and can’t wait to show off your hard work? I completely understand, and for you ladies, you should check out this chic and ab flaunting long cover up. You will still look sophisticated while bearing your belly and your rocking your hot silhouettes.
