Try These 3 Creative Ways to Wear a Sarong

Can you believe it’s already June? It seems like May flew by in just a blink of an eye and in a few short weeks, summer will officially be here! Although summer doesn’t begin until June 21, we’ve had sunnier days on the mind for weeks. From quick weekend road trips to long afternoons at the lake, we love everything about summer and can’t wait to dive in! Last week we shared a look at our favorite blogger-approved swimwear styles for summer (LINK), but today we’re focusing on another beach favorite — the sarong. Also known as a beach scarf, the sarong is a summer staple that can be worn so many ways! Today we’re breaking down three of the most popular ways to tie this oversized scarf so you can feel ready for summer, too.



around the waist

One of the most common ways to wear a sarong is tied up around the waist as a cover up. Whether you toss it on over your swimsuit or throw on a simple tank top with it, this is such an easy look to recreate for your beach day. Just wrap it around your waist and knot the ends together and you’re good to go! This is a great way to cover up if you’re going for a quick ice cream run or out for drinks after a day at the beach. That was easy!

Ah, the elusive sarong-as-a-dress look. For some reason, this look always seems so simple, but when you try to do it yourself, it always slides off. No worries — we’ve mastered the art of the beach dress for you. Simply hold the two far corners in each hand with the sarong around your back. Then, take one side at a time and wrap around your front, taking the end up around your neck. Lastly, knot the ends behind your neck. With it knotted at the neck, you won’t have to worry about it slipping off you as you walk around. Crisis averted.

The great thing about a versatile piece like the sarong is that it can be worn so many ways throughout the day. Maybe you’ll head to the beach with it tied around your waist, then transition it to a dress for a stroll on the boardwalk. Although this style is oversized, it can still be worn as a scarf for those chilly summer evenings while dining al fresco. Start by taking the two opposite ends and tie them into a secure knot. Now you’ll have a large circle. Loop the circle around your neck twice and voila — you have a summer infinity scarf! Easy peasy.

    I like to wear tied off on one shoulder “toga style”. It is sassy and fun no matter which print I choose to wear. Of course, I also wear my sarong as shown above.
