The Best Marlin Fashion Finds for Women over 50

Did you know “marlin” was a color? Not only is it a color, but it’s a huge trend for 2024! I struggled to find a way to describe it, but it’s sometimes referred to as “aquatic blue.” Basically, it’s lighter than navy and bluer than aqua. Confused? Don’t worry. Today, I’m sharing some of the best marlin fashion finds for women over 50.

Do you think this looks like the color Marlin? I have been looking for a few sundresses to wear on vacation (if I ever get to go), and this style is so cute. This boho floral max is all about those summer vibes. It is super flowy and really comfy, and it has this adorable tiered design. Perfect for a beach day or just lounging around looking fabulous. I love this dress in this color, but it comes in tons of prints, so you’re sure to find one you love. Pair it with a cute cardigan if you don’t like the sleeveless aspect.

This is the same dress as above but in the blue cashew print. The great thing about this print is that is could also be worn in the fall. I would wear a jacket, cardigan, or blazer in gold, burgundy, or dark orange to make it look more fallish.

This Blue Lace Maxi Dress is so cute and is available in many colors. My sister has this in pink, and plans on wearing it to Martha’s Vineyard on vacation. The lace cutout design adds visual interest without showing a lot of skin. I’m wearing a medium, and it fits me great.

Here’s a perfect summer dress with adorable flutter sleeves and a smocked bodice that just screams comfort and style. The tiered A-line cut is super flattering for a ton of body types, making it a great choice for all our upcoming summer events. Plus, it comes in so many colors that you’re bound to find one (or a few) you love! I’d pair this with sandals or even cute white sneakers.

Let’s keep our summer wardrobe chic and comfy!

This t-shirt is perfect for keeping it chill and stylish. It’s got cute ruffle sleeves and a side tie that adds a fun twist. You can rock it with jeans or shorts, and it’s super soft and stretchy.

This super versatile skort has four handy pockets perfect for stashing everything from your phone to tennis balls. It’s made from a stretchy, high-waisted fabric that’s both lightweight and breathable, designed to keep you comfy and free to move. It would be great for sports, casual hangouts, or just running errands while looking chic and staying comfortable.

You should know by now how I feel about denim jackets, lol. You can wear them with anything! I love this in the traditional blue but it comes in lots of others, even pink.

Here’s a fun way to rock the trending color – blue Gel Nail Polish! I get that not everyone likes to go to the nail salon, or it might not be in the budget, but this polish won’t break the bank. Years ago, I would have never worn blue nail polish, but those days are behind us. Anything goes, so get ready to rock those beautiful nails!

Ooo-la-la. Who is ready for some glam? This color is gorgeous! Plus, it’s a cool design. One end is the eyeshadow stick itself, while the other has a soft sponge for easy application. Talk about convenience! Whether you’re getting glam for a night out or just want to add a little sparkle to your day, this eye shadow stick has got you covered.

I bought this, and I think it looks much more expensive than that. And the best part? It’s easy to keep clean—just a quick wipe with a damp cloth, and it looks good as new!

I love to wear scarves in spring and summer. The weather changes so quickly, and restaurants start cranking up the AC. You never know when you’ll need one! This scarf is a great way to add a trending color to your wardrobe, and at under $10, it’s a steal!

What do you think? Do you love marlin? I think it’s a gorgeous color, but I’m not sure I won’t just call it blue from here on out, lol.

  1. These are beautiful…I love the blues.!!

  2. Lol, got to love the names they give colors. It’s a nice blue but hardly a “new” shade. Still it gives it a nice coastal vibe. Love the first dress and yes! to a denim jacket with pockets!

  3. I love all shades of blue-thanks for hooking me up! “Marlin” had me intrigued. I’m loving the handbag for my lovely MIL.

  4. Glenda ENNIS says:

    Love the clothes

  5. That color looks great on you

  6. Mary Carol says:

    I love blue and so many of the clothes in my closet are this color. Didn’t know marlin was a shade of blue.
    Cancun, Cozumel and Progresso have such beautiful beaches.

  7. Love this shade of blue!

  8. Sue Koren says:

    Two weeks in Australia including scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef.

  9. Garrett Laura says:

    Lovely post! Blue is my favorite color. Thank you for these great choices.

  10. Love the denim jacket!

  11. Marlin is new to me as a color name. Beautiful though!

  12. I like the color. The outfits you styled look like a light blue on my phone. Is the color marlin like the items on the widget? They all look like the same color.

  13. I ordered the blue top with the square neck and pleats. I prefer set in sleeves since I have broader shoulders and the drop sleeves just make me look broader. Set in sleeves can be hard to find sometimes. I’m still seeing a lot of half tucks this spring so I’m guessing it’s still a trend. Planning to do a half tuck with this long, flowy top.

    1. Cindy, I’m still doing the half tuck when I want to. Just because something is trending doesn’t mean we always have to do it.

  14. Love the color marlin. Midi and maxi dresses are so easy to wear.
    We love cruising and out of 27 cruises, Southeast Asia and Figi were two of my favorite ports.

    1. I’ve tried to talk Joe into a cruise, and he can’t stand the idea. Lol!

      1. Love ❤️ that blue color “Marlin” on you. Your husband sounds like mine with the cruise. At least Joe has traveled with you. I’ve never been on an actual holiday since I was 13. It was an enjoyable trip with my parents and brother as we drove into the Dakotas and Wyoming, camping along the way.

  15. Marlin is such a beautiful color! I wasn’t familiar with it until you modeled these colors. I especially love the Lace Maxi dress. The nail polish looks great too!

  16. Love that color. Never knew it was called Marlin.

  17. Kerri White says:

    lovely shade of blue my favorites are the crew neck ruffle sleeve top and the hand bag

  18. Carol Ann Jablonski says:

    Ephesians 6:11 is one of my favorite verses.
    Loving the blues. Not really liking the necklines on the dresses. They are not flattering on me. Smocked waistlines used to look good on me, but not anymore. Still hunting for the right mother of the groom not very fancy outfit for a northern Canadian wedding.

  19. Gorgeous blue maxi lace dress.

  20. Hummm, marlin is a beautiful color, love the handbag.

  21. Love love love this color! Looks so good on you.

  22. Elizabeth says:

    great post. I think I would wear everything listed!

  23. Krista Preston says:
