The Swimsuits & Cover-Ups You’ll Want To Wear All Summer Long (No Matter Where You Are)

You’ve been cooped up indoors for months, binge-watching every major series and baking at least two loaves of banana bread a week. But now that the weather is finally(!) nice, it’s time to venture outdoors (safely, of course) and enjoy a little vitamin D. You deserve it.

While we know you’d rather be globetrotting or hopping from one BBQ to the next, social-distancing guidelines, unfortunately, mandate otherwise. Chances are, even in spite of regions that are reopening, out of an abundance of caution, you’ll be spending your summer in your backyard or on your fire escape with those you’ve been quarantined with. It's frustrating for sure, but that doesn't mean summer 2020 is canceled. You can easily have a hot girl summer in the privacy of your home — and with a dope swimsuit, too. That’s why Unbothered partnered with Target to round up five swimwear-and-cover-up combinations for every mood and for every activity you might find yourself doing (lounging on your deck with a cocktail counts!). We guarantee these pairings will get your Black girl magic stamp of approval — take a look.





Down-To-Earth Bohemian

Your mood: You've spent way too much time indoors, and it's affecting your spirit. All you want to do is be one with nature.

Your activity: Disconnecting from screens (and anxiety) by relaxing in a hammock, focusing on your breathing, and swapping today's top hits for the sounds of nature.

Your pairing: A comfortable set, featuring a flouncy design, a loose kimono-style cover-up, and a whimsical floral print that ties the two together within one soothing color palette.

Glam Goddess

Your mood: You’re counting down the days until you can sit in your nail technician’s and hair stylist’s chairs again, but in the meantime, you’ve mastered how to get glammed at home without an accident. You look good, and you should flaunt it.

Your activity: Lounging with a damn good cocktail (serious question: Is mixology in your future?) on your patio while Zoom-ing with your besties.

Your pairing: This teal metallic bikini delivers sexiness and shine all in one set. Style it with a fierce leopard-print dress for your trips to and from the bar (aka the kitchen) for refills.

Xhilaration Metallic Turquoise Bikini Bottom, $, available at Target

A New Day Short Sleeve Ruffle Hem Dress, $, available at Target


Flirty Minimalist

Your mood: You're looking to work off some energy, but not so much that you want to commit to a full workout session.

Your activity: A leisurely stroll or an easy bike ride around the neighborhood before firing up the sprinkler and filling up your mini pool for a blissful soak.

Your pairing: A bikini top with sporty, adjustable straps that provides extra support — perfect for a relaxing socially distant walk. Instantly turn it into an outfit with the addition of a breezy high-waist cotton skirt.

Sweet & Sporty

Your mood: You’re ready to relive your childhood and have some fun (while looking chic).

Your activity: Your brother convinced you to play a friendly yet competitive game of cornhole in the backyard. You haven’t played in years, but you’re down for the exercise and laughs.

Your pairing: This striped one-piece that's somehow both sweet and sporty pairs perfectly with denim shorts, so you can move around (throw beanbags, catch frisbees, play any and all lawn games) with ease.

Xhilaration Red Stripe One Piece Swimsuit, $, available at Target

Universal Thread High-Rise Jean Shorts, $, available at Target


Artsy Florals

Your mood: You've been in a creative funk, but now you're feeling inspired.

Your activity: En plain air, aka setting up an easel next to your garden and channeling your inner artist.

Your pairing: A vibrant, color-rich floral one-piece to help inspire your creative endeavors. Transform it into a top by slipping on a comfortable pair of sweeping linen pants for a chic, artiste look.
