In my quest for simplicity, I have yet to find anything as versatile or vital to my minimalist style than a sarong. With a few simple changes, the sarong (also known as a pareo) adds color, personality, and perfect functionality to any woman’s wardrobe. Rarely do I ever leave the house without at least one tucked in my bag or draped as a scarf.
In the Sarong Series, we will explore some creative ways to wear what is essentially a large, lightweight, fringed piece of fabric.
Let’s begin with an easy and fun way to wear a sarong: The Tied Long Skirt. It looks great tied in the front and to the side. Personally, I prefer the side tie. It tends to stay “out of the way” while I go about my daily activities a little better than a knot tied in front. Though either way looks flattering on a female figure. 🙂 You will find instructions for both styles below.
Average Sarong Size Measurements:
Width: Approx 46 inches (117 cm)
Length (including fringe): Approx 66 inches (168 cm)
Place sarong behind you while holding opposite corners on the longest side.
Fold over body and connect to the side or the front.
Tie the two ends together until sarong is secure against the body (waist or lower hip is fine).*
*At this point, you may want to leave it with the ends hanging in a nice drape. Though it will be more secure if you continue on…
Take the two ends and tie them again in the same place to secure position. Let ends fall in a nice drape at the newly formed knot.
Saunter through your day in the cool comfort of a light but long skirt!
