Stunning Swim Cover Ups That Can Take You from Day to Night

Check out these three chic swimwear cover-ups that are expertly crafted and ever so fashionable for the beach and beyond. Plus, get our top tips for converting your day look to night!


Trendsetting Tunics

Transform a tunic with light fade skinny jeans, neutral wedges, and bright jewelry

Tunics are an easy go-to for a day at the beach – just throw one on for instant, effortless elegance. The loose fit of a tunic keeps you cool and comfortable all day in the sunshine and salty air, but your tunic doesn't need to go back in the closet once the sun sets. With a few tweaks, it can easily be worn to an evening dinner under the stars or to a club down the road from your resort.

One of the simplest ways to dress up a tunic is to slide on your favorite pair of mid-rise, light fade skinny jeans underneath. Form-fitting bottoms give you a bit of shape under the billowy fit of the tunic, while making your outfit appropriate for any setting off the beach. Throw on a pair of neutral wedges and a bright colored bib necklace to really dress it up, or keep it simple with your favorite slide sandals!

We’re loving the Island Fare V-Neck Tunic paired with a sleek pair of black skinnies or capris, or a simple chapeau with sunglasses! The tunic’s solid color makes it easy to dress up, and the crochet trim shows just enough skin to make it positively playful, especially with a bright colored bralette underneath.

Stylish Sundresses

Transform a sundress with a structured jacket, bold necklace, and contemporary clutch

Don’t let the name deceive you – sundresses can absolutely be worn in the moonlight! Sundress cover ups are no-brainers on the beach, but they can just as easily be worn from day to night. Instead of packing an entirely new outfit for your evening adventures, a few accessories are all you need to transform your mini or maxi dress.

When the temperature drops after sunset, pop a tailored blazer over your sundress to instantly go from carefree to chic. The structured look of the jacket will contrast beautifully against the loose-fitting flow of the dress. Another foolproof way to dress it up? Accessories! Throw on a sky-high pair of strappy heels, a bold necklace or bangle, and add your favorite clutch. With the right accessories, there’s no mistaking your sundress for a casual beach outfit!

The Island Fare Tunic Dress is one of our current favorites. With retro Boho-chic sleeves and lace trim detail tell a story that's uniquely you. It's perfect as a sultry top, dress, or swim cover up. You choose!

Ravishing Rompers and Jumpsuits

Transform a romper with strappy heels and vibrant earrings

Daytime romps around paradise naturally call for your most comfortable, versatile romper. Rompers and jumpsuits are every bit as comfy as your favorite workout clothes but look exponentially more sophisticated. One of the biggest advantages of rompers and jumpsuits, however, is the fact that they’re complete outfits on their own. No need to bring multiple tops or bottoms, because a few rompers have you covered – literally!

To transition your romper or jumpsuit from day to night, it’s all about footwear and accessories. Ditch your flip-flops for heels (or even dressy gladiator sandals) to instantly elevate your outfit. Add a pair of jaw-dropping earrings or a light scarf, and you’re ready for an oceanfront dinner or cocktail at a local hot spot.

The Costa Brava Crochet Trim Romper is a current favorite and ideal for all your plans from breakfast to dinner. The off the flowy style, crochet trim, and solid color allow you to accessorize any way you want!
