My Miss Tunica beachwear arrived at my parents’ house in Florida a few weeks before me. Leaving dreary autumnal London behind along with all of my jumpers (translation: sweaters), I was excited to try on my new tunic.
Although their entire inventory was full of bold colors and bright motifs, I opted for the warm wild sunset pattern to complement my red and coral swimsuits. (Or ‘bathing costumes,’ if you’re British.) For a more classic look, Miss Tunica beachwear also offers solid white and black cover-ups with elegant embellishments.
The quality of Miss Tunica was apparent as soon as I lifted the silky fabric from the package. Thankfully, the tunic is not actually made from silk, which can chafe when wet. This cover-up garment not only looks pretty; it dries quickly over a wet bathing suit.

The Miss Tunica beachwear was made perfectly square with even hems. The beading and sequins in the decorative neckline were all carefully sewn and dispersed evenly, but even so, a small package of spare pieces accompanied the garment.
I selected Miss Tunica’s “Maya” style because I like to wear loose, flowing garments. I also chose the short Maya Wild Sunset model because I’m short – and I didn’t look like I was drowning in a swath of fabric. I felt that this Miss Tunica beachwear apparel was flattering, and I appreciated the extra hems near the torso to keep the poncho-style garment in place.
Miss Tunica beachwear also provides a range of jewellery: necklaces, rings, belts and beach shoes. The sole-less sandal is essentially an anklet connected to a toe ring. The Belize foot jewellery fit my child-sized feet and easily adjusted to fit my mom’s normal sized feet.
A tiny section of the sole-less beach sandal appeared copper instead of gold, so I believe they tarnish easily and would not wear them to the beach or in the water. They’re great for hanging out on the poolside, though, or for treading around on a boat deck. And as for the the Miss Tunica beachwear swimsuit cover-up? It’s a new warm weather vacation staple for me!
Let me know which patterns and styles you adore in the comments… I expect it won’t be too long until I see people matching me on the beach!
