Different Ways to Fashionably Style a Sarong

Sarongs are the perfect must have when you plan in going to a resort, a holiday vacation going to the beach or anytime you plan to go for a swim. It’s just the perfect cover-ups for bathing suits. If you know how to wear the sarong right and in a fashionable way, you sure are to rock the look! Though most people think Sarongs are just to be worn during the Summer season, I don’t believe so – after all, we don’t just go to the beach during summer, right? A lot of people go for a swim, go the the beach whenever they want. Thus, learning how to wear a sarong will always come in handy.


Another thing that makes Sarong really perfect is that they are lightweight and totally versatile. You can never get tired of wearing it in different style each time!

Here are Fashionable Ways to Style a Sarong: Feel free to try this at home and see what looks great on you!

Draped Dress

– First, hold two corners on the long side of the sarong and tie them behind your neck loosely. The fabric should drape like a cowl neck.
– Holding the edges of the sarong below the waist, gather a couple inches of the sarong and wrap it behind you.
– Move both edges all the way around to one hip and then double-knot the edges.

Bandeau Cascade Dress

– Holding two corners on the long side of the sarong, wrap the sarong behind your back horizontally.
– Move your grip along the edge of the sarong about a foot toward your chest and tie the edges together in a double-knot against the bust, allowing the extra fabric to cascade down.

Toga Dress

– Holding two corners on the long side of the sarong, wrap the sarong behind your back horizontally.
– Wrap one corner all the way around your body, and tuck it underneath the opposite arm. Pull the corner over the back of the shoulder.
– Holding that corner with one hand, pull the other corner in front of your shoulder and tie the two corners into a knot at your shoulder. You should allow the fabric to drape down in front of your arm.

Wrap Dress

– Holding two corners on the long side of the sarong, wrap the sarong behind your back horizontally.
– Bring one end across your body to the opposite shoulder.
– Wrap the other end underneath your bust, around your back to the opposite shoulder.
– Tie both ends at the shoulder.
