Even if a beach vacation isn't in the cards for you this year, let's hope you can still get yourself to a pool, lake, or river. That cute new swimsuit isn't going to show itself off, after all. Along with your sunscreen, hat, and tote bag, all that's left to pack is a functional and stylish cover-up. 

When sifting through Instagram, I noticed four types of swimsuit cover-ups popping up again and again. Aimee Song, for one, prefers to match her bikini to a sarong, while Lucy Williams is partial to oversize button-down shirts. Scroll down to shop the best editor-approved cover-ups for summer.

Forever 21's prices are certainly hard to beat. 

This would look fantastic with a bold red bikini top. 

This will give you vacation vibes even if you're just in your backyard. 

I've never met a print I didn't like. 

Button-Down Shirts

Buy it one size larger than normal for a relaxed look. 

Matching pants optional but encouraged. 

Leave it to H&M to come through with affordable prices. 

There aren't many things you can wear to both the beach and the office, but this is one of them. 

You can never go wrong with a great oxford shirt. 

Summer is the perfect time to experiment with bright colors. 

British brand Rixo is a favorite of the Instagram set. 

I love how this is styled with a coordinating (but not matchy-matchy) pink bikini.

This looks more expensive than it really is. 

Tell me you're a fashion girl without telling me you're a fashion girl.
