A cute bathing suit is important, but a sexy cover-up is CRUCIAL!

We love this Vix Swimwear snake-skin cover up dress. The scoop neck and alluring hemline show just enough skin while the flutter sleeves bring a sort of old Hollywood glamour to the look.

The best part: this dress is only $145 and the skirt is double layered so you can go straight from afternoon cocktails to dinner- no costume change needed!

To take this dress to more of a MichaelKors Jet-Set look, wear your Ray-Ban Road Rider Sunglasses. Otherwise, channel your inner Jackie and go large with a pair of the new Proenza Schouler Oversized Round Sunglasses.
