Cotton Island Beach Tunics & Coverups

Are you planning on a tropical island getaway and need breezy, flowy, and comfortable clothing and beach cover-ups? Or even just want to spruce up your closet with some colorful island wear, ready for summer? Or are you after some lazy day clothing with a bit of "island style" to them?

We understand the desire to have comfortable, light, and breezy clothes fit for those warmer weather climates and beaches. You want clothing that doesn’t stick to you; that allows for a soft breeze to cool down your sun-warmed skin.

You don't want to get caught out feeling sweaty and uncomfortable in the heat because your clothing is the wrong fabric. After living, working & sailing in the Caribbean heat for 10 years, I understand how that feels. You deserve to look and feel good. Now it's time for some FUN. Don't let your wardrobe hold you back!

Why West Indies Tunics?

Sometimes a dress is too long and cumbersome, especially for those beach days. You want something that won’t wrap around your legs after a swim, but still want to cover up and protect your shoulders from a nasty sunburn.

Our vast array of tunics – from fine and delicate tunics to tunics that offer more coverage while still being light and breezy – there is one for everyone. With stylish and carefully chosen patterns, you can still rock it at the beach and beachside cafes!

We do not compromise functionality for style, or style for functionality; rather we have combined the two to create stylish and cool tunics and beach cover-ups for all our young at heart sisters, perfect for the beach.

Our beach tunics are also perfect for those days where you don’t want to wear a dress nor pants. Pair up our tunics with some leggings, a necklace, and some makeup, and you’re ready to go to the shops in comfort and style!

The versatility of our tunics is loved by hundreds of women! Why not try them for yourself?

Island beach cover ups

We all love the beach; we all love the sun. However, we also know how too much sun can cause painful burns and ugly tan lines.

When on holiday to a tropical island or the beach on a hot summer’s day, most of us would agree that getting out of our swimwear into normal clothes is too much to ask for. You simply want something to throw on with ease that will protect your skin. Our island beach cover ups are the perfect solution.

Our vast collection of island beach cover ups are made from 100% breathable cotton with you in mind. We have tunics that can be worn to coffee with friends, hiding your swimsuit underneath for your ‘me time’ down at the beach afterwards.

Our cotton-mesh kimonos are the perfect elegance for a quick-drying yet shielding cover both on a beach day and picnic with the family.

Dress up or leave as is our longer tunics. Show off your stunning legs while you protect your shoulders with our long-sleeve cotton tee’s. Feel the breeze as you walk in our thinner cotton tunics while staying protected from the sun’s rays.

Why a tunic cover-up?

When you’ve had a relaxing and refreshing day at the beach, many of us would agree that going straight home to change before going out again is a waste of time. We would rather have something stylish to throw on quickly, then complete the day's agenda.

Our tunics are the perfect solution. For those who would rather not tackle pants on salty, sandy legs, we have a range of half thigh tunics, kimonos, and breezy coverups perfect for that shop run, café stop, or lunch with friends – now it’s all a matter of which one takes your fancy?

Why Cotton?

Cotton is a simple and inexpensive textile with many benefits when it comes to clothing. Here are just a few benefits:

Moisture-wicking: when you sweat, the most irritating part is it leaving your skin feeling sticky and gross. Cotton quickly absorbs moisture on the skin and is then dried by the air, leaving your skin cool and fresh.
Won’t cling: in warm weather, the last thing you want is your clothing to stick to you. With cotton clothing, you don’t have to worry! Feel free to twirl without your clothing sticking to your skin. Allow your skin to breathe.
Hypoallergenic: since cotton is a natural fibre, the possibility of an allergic reaction or irritation is extremely low. Since it hasn’t been made with chemicals or plastics, you don’t have to worry about those nasties touching your skin.
Durable: cotton can withstand the wear and tear of life, whether that be rough play, slipping at the rock pools, or day to day life. The best part about using cotton for our beach clothing is that the fibres are stronger when wet! Beach and pool days here we come!
Won’t pill: do you ever go to wear your favourite piece of clothing only to find that it pilled? It’s so frustrating! Especially dresses and skirts around the behind area. With pure cotton fabrics, you won’t find this problem! Be able to sit, wash, and play in your West Indies clothes for years to come!
