Swimsuit season is here and so it’s time to bring out the cover-ups! Coverups are essential during summer because we’re going from the pool to the lounge or the beach to the bay cafés! These are our top coverups.

Romper Coverups

Can a woman over 50 wear a romper? Well, I am clearly wearing one and I love them. I have even purchased a couple of rompers for summer fashion. I will say that my best asset at 66 years old are my legs thanks to my mother who had great legs until she passed at 83. If your legs are not your best feature then don’t wear a romper, simple as that. We all have our gifts and we should dress to enhance our good assets and hide our bad ones. Anyway, I love this romper that I am wearing from Soma Intimates, I also have this one by Zella. Soft and sporty, this stretchy sleeveless romper features quick-drying fabric and airy mesh accents so you can feel confident. It also makes a great workout outfit.

Tunic Coverups

Tunics make for a great cover-up because usually, they can go from beach/poolside to lunch at the resort or a stroll on the town! This Navy Terry Tunic has crisp white trim for a top-notch classic nautical look. Take it to the beach, on the boat, by the pool, and out around town. The UPF 50+ cotton/poly terrycloth is so soft that you’ll never want to take this off and blocks 98% of UVA + UVB rays! I have paired mine with a cute hat (mine is sold out but here’s a similar), these adorable and affordable Vince Camuto Maritten Espadrille Wedge Sandal, and a cute Summer bag. I ordered a medium because I’m a bustier girl, but I should have ordered the small as it is true to size!

Caftan Coverups

I love caftans, year-round actually. It is definitely caftan season and this caftan just says luxury and style! Pair with a cute hat and some chic sandals and you will turn heads!

Dress Coverups

Look no further for your new favorite beach dress/cover-up! This Cabana Stripes Tie Waist Midi Dress is designed in the newest, trending silhouette with signature Cabana Life details such as the fun tassels on the tie-waist. Dress it up or down with and it will instantly make you happy every time you wear it.

At under $17 this dress is so beautiful to me and paired with sandals it becomes even cuter. Check out all of the different patterns available here. If you prefer solid colors those are available as well!

Kimono Coverups

I love a cute Kimono! This is easy to throw on over your swimsuit and perfect to wear over jeans. This is so versatile and a summer necessity in my eyes!

Here is another kimono! The beautiful kimono pictured is unfortunately sold out. But this one is so similar and only $88! I think this one is very transitional for Fall/Winter. Wear it over your swimsuit or over white denim and a pretty blouse like this one. I love these floral heels to go with it! See more swimsuits in our swimsuit post here!

These sarongs are FABULOUS. This basic black one is sexy and still classy (available in 17 colors). If you want more color then here is one with just the right amount of color (available in 16 different patterns)! Both are under $20!


With their breezy, flowy design, these pull on split pants designed with a wrap effect, are the perfect swim coverup. Made with a pretty lace trim, they make poolside chic as simple as a summer breeze. They’re made from a lightweight fabric that feels soft against your skin, so you stay cool and comfortable while you’re strolling along the sand. The tie waist keeps them securely in place, and the solid color means you can wear them with any swim top and cover-up top.

We spent yesterday on the water doing a little island hopping with friends and our grandson Carson who flew in for the weekend. We anchored on the beach at Cayo Costa Island State Park where we did some snorkeling and just chilling out! Today is a rest day and tomorrow we are going snook fishing. The weather is so amazing here in South Florida so everyone was on the water!! We only have 3 more days here on Sanibel before we head back to Houston. I hate to leave but we have a lot of balls in the air that we need to tend to. Happy Memorial Weekend…Stay safe and have a great time!! Tell us what you are up to….we would love to know.
