The “Fabulous Find of the Week” column gives you the heads up on all the hottest, most affordable items at your favorite stores!

We are in the prime of summer, ladies, and beach style is all we're thinking about on our days off. 

I can't get enough of the colorful flip flops, bikinis and hats. I just adore the fashion! But some of my favorite beach pieces are cover ups. They're so elegant and not to mention crazy comfortable. Every girl needs a good beach cover up in her closet.

For this week's fabulous find I've found us a stunning cover up that is a must have for this summer! Plus I'll be styling it with different kinds of bathing suits and bikinis to show you how well it works with your summer favorites.

White beach coverup

Let's be honest, white goes with everything! You could easily pair this ASOS cover up with a black bathing suit or a hot pink bikini underneath! It's strapless which will highlight your bathing suit straps and the bow makes it classic. Not to mention it is such a great price. It's only $25 (down from the original $42). 

This is a piece you'll definitely be wearing all summer long so it is VERY worth it. Let's check out how to style it below:

Tropical Beach Paradise

White coverup, green bikini, sunglasses and flip flops.

Products: Bikini Top - Uniqlo, Coverup - ASOS, Sunglasses - Ray-Ban (Sunglass Hut), Flip Flops - Tory Burch (Nordstrom), Bikini Bottom - Uniqlo

I can't get enough of this bikini. When I saw the print I instantly fell in love with it! It is so stunning and tropical, and it absolutely screams summer. Not to mention it also has the amazing Uniqlo price: The top is $7.90 and the bottom is $3.90! You can get the full bikini for less than $12. I love Uniqlo because their pieces are always such high quality and very affordable. For college girls like us it's the ideal place to shop.

I also love how the other accessories incorporate the beautiful summery green of the swimsuit. Ray-Bans are of course a total classic which means quality is 100% ensured with every purchase. The flip flops come in a stunning shade of green and let's be honest, who doesn't love Tory Burch?

Fun Fuchsia Girl!

White coverup, sandals and hat, fuchsia bathing suit and black sunglasses.

Products: Hat - Pistil Marcel (Zappos), Bathing Suit - MNLY Baby (Amazon), Sunglasses - Betsey Johnson (6pm), Sandals - Kelly & Katie (DSW), Coverup - ASOS

It's no secret I'm a sucker for floppy summer hats: They protect your skin from the sun and look simply fabulous with a wide variety of outfits! (See a post how to style them here!) This floppy hat is both stylish and classic, so you can't go wrong. I also adore the Betsey Johnson sunglasses. They're so beautiful and on sale for $27.99. For designer sunglasses that is an amazing deal!

While I love every piece in this outfit, I have to say my favorite piece is the bathing suit. It's gorgeous, makes a statement, and is so much fun. This particular shade of fuchsia is a showstopper and I love pieces with funny messages on them, so this fits the bill!

Vintage Pink Princess

White coverup, pink bikini sunglasses and flip flops.

Products: Bikini Bottom - Unique Vintage, Sunglasses - A New Day (Target), Coverup - ASOS, Flip Flops - Katy Perry (Macy's), Bikini Top - Unique Vintage

I adore vintage-inspired pieces. I think they're so elegant and always in style. This remains true for beachwear: There's something about a vintage-inspired swimsuit that's so chic and timeless. This high waisted bikini is stylish but also comfortable and practical for a day at the beach. Plus, it matches perfectly with the white cover up.

I finished this look off with some Katy Perry flip flops, which are so fun and comfortable. I love the ice cream cone detail because it screams summer and is completely adorable. These sandals are quirky, girly, and oh-so fab all at the same time.
