Sarong Styles, Como llevar tu toalla, How to wear your towel
Almost any toalla can double as a beach cover up, also known as a “sarong” or “pareo,” making the toalla basically the most versatile wardrobe piece ever, in our opinion. The sarong hails from Southeast Asia, and was originally created featuring an ancient dyeing technique called “batik,” which produced unique patterns and colors on the fabric. The name sarong literally translates to “covering” or “sheath” in Malay. Historically, both men and women throughout Southeast Asia wore sarongs for various occasions, making the sheath an integral part of their daily wardrobe.
Today, sarongs have been popularized around the world as a cover up for swim and beachwear. They make the perfect lightweight, portable, and undeniably chic summertime accessory. Our tutorials will show you how to turn your traditionally cold weather scarves into a statement piece that you can wear all summer long. How’s that for a year-round wardrobe essential?
