Trending Now: 7 Beach Fits That'll Put You on Island Time

With the weather getting warmer, we’re headed to our nearest beach or pool to cool off. And while most of us have a preferred swimsuit, it can be hard to decide what to wear over that. Do I grab an oversized graphic tee? Rock the shorts & bikini top look?

Since it’s hard to pick between sheer cover-ups and matching sets, the members of Her Campus's InfluenceHer Collective modeled all sorts of fits. Scroll on for major vacation #ootd inspo.

This set is so. Cute. I love how it covers you up but is still just the right amount of sheer. Paired with sandals and a market bag, this look is perfect for having a picnic at the beach.

This loose matching set is perfect for slipping on over your bathing suit, and it looks so comfy. What really completes the outfit, though, are the platform sandals. They’re just dressy enough for a night out on the town after a long beach day.

When your swimsuit is this cute, let it do the talking for you. Whether you prefer bikinis or one-pieces, you can style your suit as a top with shorts or a skirt. Add some sunnies for the ultimate cool girl look.

This hat and crocheted bikini top only further my boho beach agenda. Not only is this bikini cute enough to wear out as an actual top, but the hat protects your face from the sun. Add some jewelry to your look for some extra glam.

If your suit is too cute to cover up (take this printed one for example), just throw a simple cardigan on. It’ll keep you warm if you decide to watch the sunset on the beach.

I think this is what Hawaiian shirts were truly made for. For a fun, tropical look, throw on one of these button up shirts over your suit. Style with big shades to keep your face protected from the sun.

This sheer, patterned cover-up is to die for, but what I love most about this look are the metallic sandals and straw bag. Not only is the bag fashionable, but it’s big enough to pack essentials like water, sunscreen and snacks (duh).

TBH, these looks have got me on island time. I'm grabbing my swimsuit and hitting the beach — after I take some cute pics in my fit, of course.
