8 Cute Outfits to Wear Over a Bikini

Planning your next excursion and unsure what to wear over your designer swimwear that’ll be stylish without being too much effort? Depending on your destination, there are endless options to ensure you have the right outfit choices for the occasion.

You could be scheduled for relaxation at an all-inclusive resort, a remote exotic island, or simply headed to a pool party. Wherever you’re headed, we’ve got you covered here at ViX with resort wear and style tips. From trendy, comfortable jumpsuits for women to flowy comfortable summer dresses, here are eight cute outfits to wear over your sexy designer bikini

Black Mini Nora Jumpsuit for a Casual Day at the Beach

A day on the sand calls for an outfit that’s low-key and comfortable. A simple tee and shorts with your favorite pair of flip flops is a good choice to take with you to the beach or to a pool party. However, when you want added style, a romper or mini jumpsuit is the way to go. 

The Black Mini Nora Jumpsuit coordinates with all bikini styles to add flair for your beach day look. Details like a cinched waist and v-neckline create a shapely silhouette while still fitting loosely enough to flow with you. How to wear a jumpsuit casually? Pair with flip-flops when on the sand, and throw a pair of gladiator sandals in your beach tote to smoothly transition the outfit from the beach to a sidewalk stroll.

Blue Grey Thai Jumpsuit to Stay Cool When Sightseeing


Sightseeing somewhere with tropical weather? It’s important to stay cool. The Blue Grey Thai Jumpsuit is made with a lightweight rayon linen blend that allows you to appear effortlessly chic when deciding what to wear over a bikini. The halter-style bodice and wrap belt at the waist are built-in design features that allow you to limit the number of accessories you’ll need to complete the look. 

Pair with a comfy pair of neutral beach sandals or even a pair of clean, white sneakers to keep the look comfortable and cool. The gorgeous color is classy enough to wear for a lunch al fresco and casual enough to spend an entire day taking in the culture of a city. Due to the unique cut on the top, it’s ideal for wearing over a strapless bikini to create a seamless appeal. 

Two stunning bikinis that match the jumpsuit’s vibe are the Paraty Ocean Square Bandeau Bikini and the Vanilla Pleats Bandeau Bikini. The soft, unique Lycra blend of the Paraty Ocean Square Bandeau Bikini will fit smoothly beneath the jumpsuit’s flowy fabric. Additionally, the thick blue, white, and sand-colored stripes of the swimsuit match the beach vibe. 

An elegant alternative is the sheen of the Vanilla Pleats Bandeau Bikini. The neutral appeal and smooth, breathable fabric make this strapless bikini another good option. The thick straps on the bottoms that sit at the hip offer extra coverage and comfort to wear from the beach to shopping, dining, and exploring all day with full ease of movement. 

Pink Liz Pant for a Pop of Color 

When choosing what to wear over a bikini top and your Brazilian swimwear bottoms at the beach, a lightweight pair of billowy pants is a favorable option if you don’t want to wear a one-piece outfit like with the Black Mini Nora or Blue Grey Thai jumpsuits. Make a fashion statement with the Pink Liz Pant, especially if you’re a fan of bright colors. 

The vibrant pink pants have subtle white stripes and a breezy wide-leg that’s ideal for the beach. The side slit on the legs also creates easy movement when wearing on your next vacation or hanging out poolside. Pair with your favorite bikini or matching blouse to complete the outfit. 


To amplify the pink hue while playing with patterns, pair with the Fiore Bia Tube Bikini. The elegant blue-grey background with the contrast of pink and red flowers create a fashionable look without being too matchy-matchy. On the other hand, if you want to let the pants shine, the Black Elis Tri Parallel Bikini delivers a timeless appeal. 

Other options to consider are a white or blush bikini top that will work well with the printed pants without overwhelming the look. The Pink Liz Pant is a fashionable choice that'll keep you cool when you’re ready for your next beach vacation. 

Off White Wrap Top and Off White Liz Pant

Benefit from the style and feel of the Pink Liz Pant in an elegant white color choice instead, and pair with the Off White Wrap Top for a cute outfit that’s effortlessly cool. The white-on-white ensemble is sophisticated enough for a seaside dinner when worn with a metallic sandal or espadrilles with ankle-tie straps. It creates a streamlined silhouette and can easily be slipped over a bikini when heading straight from the sand to your next adventure.

When working with an all-white outfit, it’s a blank palette to add to as you see fit. Amp up the style factor by accessorizing with dangly earrings or an armful of bangles. Add in pops of color like coral or turquoise to emulate the colors of the sun and sea. The combination of the Off White Wrap Top and Off White Liz Pant emulates the feeling of summer or the laid-back vibe of an all-inclusive resort without coming off too casual. 

Jasper Alanna Midi Dress Embraces a Tropical Vibe

The jade-green hue of the Jasper Alanna Midi Dress echoes the coastal scene of Costa Rica, Hawaii, and other equally lush destinations.  It’s the perfect choice when considering what to wear over a bathing suit. The eye-catching color only adds to the sexy sophistication of this outfit. A mid-thigh slit breaks up the fabric of the mid-length dress, and the spaghetti straps keep everything cool for the ultimate in resort style. 

The Jasper Ring Bandeau Bikini is an obvious match due to the color and style of the swimsuit. The ring feature on the front blends in well with the dress if part of it happens to peek through. Additionally, the wide bottoms of this bikini can sit high on the hips, which works well with the dress’s high slit. Furthermore, the thicker straps on the bottoms provide enough coverage to allow you to feel confident when on the move.

Margot Dot Way Caftan Offers an Effortless Appeal

Nothing says beach-ready better than a caftan. The shirt dress style is a must-have for the sand when deciding what to wear over a bikini. The Margot Dot Way Caftan, in particular, is a breezy staple that works for any occasion that calls for a swimsuit. The slight flutter on the sleeves and deep-v plunging neckline makes the design both comfortable and fashionable. Plus, the lightweight material keeps you cooler in warmer temps. 

Pair with a resort sandal, slip-on tennis shoes, or beach slides to complete this cute, simple outfit. Pair with a bright, solid color bikini or your favorite neutral print to blend in with the everyday appeal of this beautiful caftan. Wear it to the beach or when you’re hanging out poolside. It works as the ultimate swimsuit cover up or its own trendy outfit to take with you wherever you go. 

Red Pepper Glenda Long Dress Is Ideal for a Night Out

If you’re spending your day out on the water and need an outfit that you can slip over your bikini for dinner, drinks, and dancing, this Red Pepper Glenda Long Dress is a show stopper. It’s as comfortable as it is stylish for the ultimate in resort wear. 

The vibrant red hue needs little else in terms of accessorizing. The flirty ruffle top and the side slit add movement to the ankle-length dress. Plus, the tie-waist and front pockets add fashionable function. Metallic or neutral gladiator sandals or sweet ankle-tie wedges are the perfect match for this outfit. Long, thin necklace chains or large hoop earrings add to this spicy look without taking away from the statement of the dress. 

Alyssa Bel Caftan Provides Versatility for Everyday Wear

Every beach day calls for a good cover-up that can double as an outfit that’s ready to wear to shop, dine, or stroll about town. When you’re working with a pretty pattern like the Alyssa Bel Caftan, you get the versatility and style needed to work whether you’re hanging out by the water or headed out to explore the city. 

Design elements like a tulip hemline and deep v-neckline amp up the style factor of this cute outfit, making it resort-friendly for any exotic destination. The coastal colors keep the cover up light and airy and serves as a go-to choice when deciding what to wear over a bikini at the beach. Resort sandals are all you need to finish the look, and slip a shawl over your shoulders if wearing the caftan later in the evening and want to have a little extra coverage.

Resort wear exudes effortless sophistication. Lightweight fabrics, colorful prints, and distinctive details all come together in pieces like jumpsuits, billowy pants, caftans, and resort dresses. Mix-and-match pieces to put together multiple cute outfits to wear over your bikini, like a beach maxi dress or a simple swimsuit cover up, and keep it simple when packing for your next exotic getaway or beach staycation.
