BLOG: 10 Ways to Wear a Sarong…So Right!

It’s that time of year again when we are drawn to the beautiful batik patterns on summer sarongs, but feel unsure how to use it. Be sure to stop by the shop to see our new collection of sarongs in all colors.  Quarter Moon staff is ready to help your learn all the ways to wear one. Here are a few ways to use your new Sarong that you may never have thought about!

1. Top

Multiple styles of tops are simple to accomplish with a Sarong.  Simply wrap the sarong around your neck to create a halter top, or tie it in a bow in the front and you’ve got a tube top. They are light a breezy for the summer air and add a pop of color to any pair of shorts and sandal combo.

2. Kimono

Tie the two ends of the scarf together and place your arms in the newly made holes, you’ve got yourself a kimono. Probably one of our favorite ways to wear a sarong because it is flattering to every figure and is so easy wear.

3. Dress20170311_163104

Every summer vacation needs a simply flowing dress and a sarong creates this look so well. Wear this look to dinner with your new tan or out to the lido deck as a beautiful cover-up.

4.Skirt

20170311_163559A simple skirt is by far the most popular and easy to accomplish look available with a Sarong. Simply wrap the fabric around your waist, tie in a knot or use a sarongclip, and BAM! Summer time gorgeousness. My definite go-to when strolling on the beach, or heading to the pool.

 

5. Blanket

Stash your sarong in your beach bag or picnic basket. They’re wide enough to lay on and fold up so easily that you can carry them anywhere without feeling the weight of a heavy tapestry.

 

6. Pillow Case 

Traveling can sometimes be a little rough and you want the comfort of something familiar. If the hotel/hostel pillows don’t look cozy or clean, grab your scarf and wrap it around the pillow, you’ll be sure to sleep through the night with ease.

7. Purse

Almost always will a Sarong be the perfect last minute purse to whip together when you find yourself at Market and have no where to hold all your new amazing goodies. It’s also super cute.

8. Headscarf

One of the more exotic ways to use your sarong is as a headscarf. When the humidity and salty beach air has turned your luscious locks into a tangled20170311_155339-1 mess, grab your sarong! Now you’ve got your mane under control and are turning heads too

9. Scarf or Shawl

Wear your sarong as a scarf around your neck or over 20170311_164119.JPGyour shoulders as a shawl. This is a perfect example of how sarongs are an effortless and versatile accessory.

 

10. Towel
